IOS 11 vs. Android Oreo - Which One is Better For You?

Android phone

Among the new features arriving with Google's latest mobile operating system update, Android 8.0 Oreo, is a new defense system against malware trickery when installing apps from outside of Google Play.

Google Play Protect is part of Google's requirements for a certified Android device, and it includes things like automatic virus scanning and support Google's Find My Device feature. The company is now rolling out a new initiative called "certified Android devices", which as the name suggests highlights all the manufacturers that are certified by Google to bundle apps like the Play Store on their devices.

For the impatient lot, one way to get Android Oreo is to buy a Pixel smartphone and another is to root the phone (void its warranty) and install a custom ROM based on Android Oreo. Developer "cory collins" has successfully booted up Android 8.0 Oreo Custom Rom on the Nexus 6.

Need help with depression? Google has more than just search results
Many people may even be unaware that they are depressed, unfamiliar with the symptoms or the condition as a clinical diagnosis. As of this week, Google will ask you if you are depressed when you search "clinical depression" using the mobile app.

All devices certified by Google are secure and ready to run apps from Google as well as the Play Store.

If you have used the Pixel smartphones, you would have noticed that the Pixel has different icons for their apps. Basically, it is a new feature for the system.

For example, the big takeaway from the comScore report is that a slight majority users (51 percent) do not download any apps in a month. The Runtime permission feature, which has to be enabled to allow installation of apps from unknown sources, has been replaced with a new permission system.

Katy Perry's meme-filled video for 'Swish Swish' is a complete disaster
Her break through single I kissed A Girl stormed the charts and went straight to number one and she's hardly looked back. Most recently, Taylor Swift fans were delighted to find that her music was back on Spotify.

The Lenovo-owned Motorola, however, is yet to announce the list of its handsets that are eligible for Android 8.0 Oreo update but several reports have already come up with a possible list.

Google has incorporated some super awesome updates into the Android 8.0 Oreo update, which will modify the users-experience.

Devices certified by Google will now carry the Play Protect branding on the retail box. One of the nifty features of the stock Android package is Google's own launcher that's now known as Pixel Launcher, after it was rebranded from Nexus Launcher a year ago.
