Android O officially arrives on August 21

Still, Google hasn't confirmed that the "O" in Android O stands for "Oreo", so this name slip must still be considered a rumor for now.

Last week, Android Police's managing editor David Ruddock said that Android O would be unveiled on August 21. The releasing date of the version will correspond with the total solar eclipse. The event will be live-streamed from NY at 2:40PM ET. While there is still some confusion regarding the exact name of the next Android version, it seems nearly certain that Oreo would be it, as it is known quite well internationally. Indeed, people today can search for just about anything, and a related video would materialize on Google's search engine. Android 4.4 was called KitKat, for instance. So yes, there's still a lot of confusion about the final name. If that doesn't confirm the name, we don't know what will. And now many users have started receiving the notification for Android Nougat 7.1.1 update over the air. the new update comes with all fixes.

As widely speculated, the new picture-in-picture mode will let users perform two tasks simultaneously on a smartphone or a tablet.

It is very likely that Google will also finally reveal the new "sweet" name of the next version of Android on this day. The Autofill feature helps in filling forms inside an app. Apps on Android O should therefore be easier on the battery, and users don't have to do anything. So now you can watch a YouTube video while sending an important email to your boss. Additionally, the new OS brings notification dots to the home screen that show updates via a badge above an app, which means users don't have to pull down the drop-down menu to see what they've missed. It will only appear in case of an unread notification. However, keeping data saving at bay, the feature will be available only while browsing on Wi-Fi. So in place of the emoji that were known as blob faces, you will getting more circular faces that what you get on iOS.

But, in an attempt to right the wrong, Google took down the teaser and uploaded it again with the name 'OctopusTeaser.mp4′, which just reassured what we have all been speculating. And this would come as no surprise, considering Google's fondness towards delicious food treaties.
