The next version of Android is supposed to have better battery life

In Google's example, notification channels will bundle all technology-related news notifications.

Users of the new Android O will also be given a boost for their device's battery with the revamping of the operating system's power saving features. The recent Google Pixel 2 leaks revealed that Google might introduce a third device named as "Taimen" at the launch. Soon, this will be overtaken by Marshmallow since the sales of Lollipop dropped down this month as compared to 32.9% of the last month. So let the naming speculation begin.

As we reported would be the case, Android O also brings the picture-in-picture display functionality from Android TV over to phones and tablets.

The new version of Android is nicknamed "O". It's Android 7.1.2. While other phones have yet to receive the chunky update, most Google-branded devices are nearly ready for another round of update.

According to 9to5Google's sources, Android O will be a "substantial update" that will bring over a bunch of new features.

But the fifth started with another hard shot from Golovkin, this time a left hand that rocked Jacobs and roused the crowd. Jacobs opened the second round in a southpaw stance and spent about the first minute fighting out of it.

Notifications can now be sorted into "channels", as opposed to just grouping them all by app. The latest data speaks of different changes and developments regarding notifications and how they will work.

The Android O announcement is the first big Android update since Google unveiled its flagship Pixel phone in October.

Google is all about making it as easy as possible to get the answers you need. The latest OS is expected to merge Android and Andromeda notifications. It's a problem the industry calls "fragmentation". You can also test the launcher separately by side-loading the Google-signed APK from APKMirror. The vast majority of them, nearly 85 percent, are on three previous versions: Marshmallow, Lollipop and KitKat. Anything released in 2017 will be first up, followed by 2016 devices a bit later. There are many new features in Android O, which you can read about here. There are no words if the tappable exclusive to Android will be available to iOS but chances are high that it will.

What this means for users is that it'll be easier to put things into text fields like your name, or your address, and even passwords. It's an official solution to the checkbox options already offered by some developers, letting you precisely control the notification activity of any supporting app from Android's settings menu.
