Google has officially revealed its plans for Android O. The tech titan is set to release a version of the software to developers later this month, before releasing it to the general public towards the end of the year. To develop for Android O one needs Android Studio 2.4 Canary.
Another method of limiting impact on battery life is by limiting the number of times an app can receive a user's location in the background. It also brings in Wi-Fi aware through which apps and devices can communicate with each other without an Internet point in between. With Android O, Google is introducing additional automatic limits on what applications can do (or cannot do) in the background.
Battery life is of prime concern to not only the users but also to the developers.
Google will showcase Android O and provide further detail about all its features at its annual developer conference, Google I/O, scheduled to run May 17-19.
Android O will also be introducing users with notification channels, which will let them have more control over notifications. Google will propose to developers a notification channel through which to diversify different types of notifications coming from applications, in addition to the system itself and native apps.
Another visible change in Android O is more control on the Notifications which pops up in the notification panel. The ConnectionService APIs have also been updated to allow third-party apps to be controlled by Bluetooth devices. For instance, apps can have their calls displayed and controlled in vehicle head units. Instead, Google has burrowed underneath the operating system's surface, applying tweaks here and there. Animated icons are now a possibility, and it will be easier to create icons of different shapes. We have seen similar integration from Samsung since the launch of Galaxy S6 - for instance, the clock app icon has analog clock with hour and minute hands displaying the time right on the icon. The autofill app stores and secures user data, such as addresses, user names, and even passwords. They will also be able to access fun features such as solitaire, tic-tac-toe and animal sounds. The feature was already available for Android TV and now it will be a part of the smartphones running Android O as well.
Apart from audio, the update will also give a boost to the visual aspect as well, the update will bring with it wide color gamut (WCG) support. Multi-display support for launching an activity on a remote display which means like a PowerPoint presentation mode or a Continuum-style Android-on-the-desktop mode.
The Limited Edition will be available alongside the game itself on May 19 for $60, a $20 premium over the standard game. People receive a hardcover Valentia Arkbook and a Fire Emblem Echoes: Shadows of Valentia Sound Selection CD.
