What’s this Oreo update about, in any case? Everybody thinks about the huge stuff, similar to picture-in-picture and autofill applications, yet significantly more is going on the off chance that you look further.
Firstly, Google has changed the area and appearance of the home screen widget picker a few times, and Oreo brings yet another adjustment. This one may make utilizing gadgets considerably less demanding, however. All of the application’s widgets are open with a long-push on the application symbol. This works in the application drawer and additionally on the home screen.
The long-press menu is a similar one that shows pending notifications through notification dots, one of the prominent changes to Android 8.0.
Less notable is the symbol that resembles four little squares. That is the widget shortcut. It’s at the top of the popup for applications that have launcher shortcuts, yet it has a full line with a name on those that don’t. Tap the symbol (wherever it might be), and a panel shows up at the base of the screen with simply the widget or widget for that application. You can long-press and drag any of them onto your home screen.
Android 8.0 accompanies another heap of changes to background processes that keeps applications from draining your battery dry. There’s a major catch, however: These background limits are authorized just on applications that target the new API level in Oreo.
