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.

Reports about the upcoming release of the Android O are a bit confusing. When the Developer Preview process is completed, it flags, it will differentiate between hardware platforms targeted for prototyping-only. It's not hard to imagine Google doing a cheesy tie-in with the biggest astronomical event of the year. As noted by Google, the latest version is created to work on recent Nexus and Pixel devices running Android 7.1.1 and above.

There's really no way of telling for how long Android O for Pixel phones is going to be delayed. 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.

The LG V20 from previous year was the first non-Google phone to arrive with Android Nougat preinstalled.

The jump to O will bring new API functionality from Android, "as well as specific features for Android Things".

Google's Android O beta was rolled out for users after Google's I/O conference. So unless and until Google feels like that the update is ready for the final rollout, unfortunately, users won't be getting their hands on the new software.
