According to CNET, users that has updated operating system can find and send gifs from their keyboards in Google's Allo, Messenger and Hangouts messaging services, and they can access a new set of gifs that include more skin tones and roles for men and women.

In addition to that, the update lets users jump from page to page in an app directly from their home screens. The user can just press and hold an icon and then choose from a menu of options that will pop up. Example, by holding the Facebook icon, users can find a menu that lets them jump straight to their profile instead of seeing the newsfeed. This shortcut-like feature is a very useful key to those people who are always using a specific part only in an application.

What Are The Devices Involve In The Update?

Google has said, according to TechCrunch reported, a rollout that will continue through the next several weeks to a select number of Google-approved devices, including the Nexus 6, Nexus 5X, Nexus 6P, Nexus 9, Pixel, Pixel XL, Nexus Player, Pixel C and General Mobile 4G (Android One). f you can’t wait that long, you can enroll your phone in the Android Beta preview program to try the update out much quicker.

Android owners can sign up through the beta page, using a Google account and a supported device, reported by Wired. The Android Beta program allows users with supported devices to receive downloads of the latest pre-release versions of Android. These are not fully tested versions of the new OS, so there can often be bugs in the code. It is worth noting that errors and defects can “affect the normal functioning of your device.”
