Emojis are super cool and with more latest ones made available, chatting with our family and friends has become all the more fun. You can expect more new cartoonish emojis in Android O. Indeed a wonderful addition to the existing OS.

6. Night Light slider

In Android O, users will be able to adjust the intensity of the blue light filter when using Android’s Night Light mode.


7. Smaller Persistent Notifications

We all know that persistent notifications are a part of Android. However, in Android O, users will get to see the persistent notifications in a smaller size so that they become less prominent and hence less annoying. Users will have to tap to see the entire notification if they want to see more of it.

8. App Shortcuts and Widgets

It is anticipated that the way you use shortcuts is going to change. The look of shortcuts is made more user-friendly letting the users access an app’s widgets from the shortcut menu.

9. Picture within Picture Mode

Picture within a picture is an amazing way to continue a video call or watching videos on YouTube in the middle of some browsing session or anything. You just got to tap the home button when the video is playing and leave the rest on Android O.


10 Change the Shape of The App Icons

Yes, you heard that right, in Android O, users will be able to change the shape of icons of the apps they have in their cell phone. But, we are not sure it will be available to all the phones are only limited to Google Pixel smartphones.

11 Notification Dots

If you are the one who liked the notification badges that appeared in iOS and wanted the feature on your Android phone, then Android O is here to leave you all pleased by introducing the feature.  Notification Dots will appear on an app icon when you have a pending alert. While on the other hand, you are the one who hates the idea can disable the notification dots.

12. Select Text Smartly

In Android O, you will be able to select the text without fiddling around. Android O will find addresses, phone numbers, email ids or urls on its own. You will have to double-tap the text to highlight what you need to copy or use the app shortcut next to the Copy button to send across the message.


13. Colourful Apps

Like in Galaxy S8, Android O users will now be able to enjoy wide-gamut color capable display to give you a perfect visual treat while you use your apps.

14. Auto-enable Wi-Fi

With Android O, you will not have to remember to turn back the WiFi on when you are in a safe WiFi network like your home or office. Infact, it will offer the option to have Wi-Fi turn back on when you are near a known, safe Wi-Fi network.
