Android O tipped to arrive on August 21

Tinkerers using the Raspberry Pi 3 will also find that Android Things Dev Preview 5 also now supports OpenGL ES 2.0 and WebView, a much requested feature.

Traditionally Google names its Android versions after a dessert, but an Octopus image, which showed up in Android O Developer Preview has got people confused. That date could be August 21 according to two well-placed sources in the Android community.

The major features are notification dots, a new picture in picture mode which lets you watch video in a small window whilst you perform other tasks on your smartphone, support for third party calling apps and notification channels in which notifications can be segmented into various different channels like sports news, and so on.
