Android 8.0 Oreo unveiled: All you need to know about Google's latest and greatest

This time, it has come true for the rumors and speculations related to the launch of Android O, the next version of the most popular mobile operating system in the world.

Since most people value their time and want to be as efficient as possible with their tasks and any other actions, Android 8.0 is introducing even faster boot up times for devices.

App badging is also coming to Android Oreo so you can see pending notifications. The site does seem to be mostly about solar eclipse-tracking, but Google is also suggesting that the countdown represents when Android O will be officially revealed. Builds for its own Pixel and Nexus 5X / 6P smartphones have entered carrier testing and should be rolling out in phases soon.

Other candidates include the Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 Edge, the company's two flagships from a year ago, and several other mid-range devices including the Galaxy A7 (2017), Galaxy A5 (2017), Galaxy A3 (2017), Galaxy J7 (2017), Galaxy J5 (2017), Galaxy Note 7 FE, and Galaxy Tab S3. It will feature peer-to-peer payments, upgrades to Siri, new Live Photo effects and a way to block notifications while driving.

Google faces some steep competition in making its artificial intelligence play, Google Assistant, the tool of choice. If needed, users may also choose to turn off the feature completely from the settings in the #Chrome app or the Google app. Google has employed the latest machine learning functionality to enhance this feature.
