With every new Android version comes new features to the phones which receive those update. The latest Android version, Android Oreo, brings really amazing features including the security patches. Many phones like Pixel, Pixel 2, Oneplus 3/3T, Mi A1 have received these Android Oreo updates, based on using those few phones today I’m gonna be explaining the features of Android Oreo. So let’s get started.
Android Oreo Best Features
PICTURE IN PICTURE MODE:
The New Picture in picture feature in Android Oreo is similar to using chrome in the background while watching video also in a computer but it is in mobile. With the announcement of android O at google I/O they said all the google apps would support picture in picture mode but youtube still lacks picture in picture mode , but chrome has support for pic-in-pic mode (if you want to enjoy youtube in picture-in-picture mode you have to open it in google chrome)
With introduction of new version of android, Android Oreo, Google tries to bring new emoji to the plate but with this update google has raised their game and made their emojis look more like cartoonish side .

Though app shortcuts have been common for many devices since android nougat it wasn’t available for all the apps but now it has been more refined in many ways and has become availability for more apps which really helps.
NEW SETTINGS MENU:
With android 7 settings menu was redesigned for a option to slide out for easy access but with android 8 that slide out feature has been removed and settings menu has been redesigned to it’s old side, which is well and good but I still miss that slide out feature though because it was really helpful when I need to jump from mobile networks to display settings but now we have to go back and go to settings menu.

It is a doze function but improved version of it.
