Android O Might Roll Out To Google Pixel On August 21
The next version of Android, dubbed as Android O, is in its developer preview phase and the final build is set to roll out soon. Recently, two reliable sources suggest that the new Android O will be rolled out to the Google Pixel devices on August 21.
Android Police's David Ruddock and the reliable tipster Evan Blass both claim that the Android O update will roll out on August 21. Ruddock suggests that the Google Pixel smartphone will also get Android O on the same day as well. If these leaks are true then the name reveal, and the release of the final build will happen on the same day, Indian Express reported.
Google's Android O beta was rolled out for users after Google's I/O conference. Apart from developers, it is available for general users as well. Right now, Google Nexus 5X, Nexus 6P, Nexus Player, Pixel C tablet, Google Pixel and Pixel XL smartphone users can get the latest OS on their phones.
Traditionally, Google names its Android versions after a dessert, but an Octopus image that showed up in Android O Developer Preview has got people confused. Formerly it was speculated that Android O will be called Android Oreo or Android Oatmeal Cookie, though it looks like everyone will have to wait a little longer to find out its official name.
Meanwhile, Google is yet to announce anything. However, it is known for sure that the Android O update will drop at some point this month. Apart from Android O, no new hardware announcement is expected from Google at this point of time, as reported by BGR.
Google Android O is having several features like improved battery performance, which will put some restrictions on background apps, picture-in-picture option for apps like YouTube, Google Duo, as well as improved notifications channels that will let users watch video on top of other app windows.
