As Android O nears its official launch for phones and tablets, other Android-based platforms are beginning to transition over. "No new ETA", tweeted Ruddock on August 10. While this is not officially confirmed by Google, it is quite shocking nonetheless.

As usual there are bound to be a number of bugs included in this preview, if you find any, report them, or request features if you find there's something you want but still isn't included. Android O succeeds the company's current-generation mobile OS, Android Nougat.

Similar to notifications in Apple iPhones, Android O-powered smartphones too will now show the notification count in top corner of the app icon.

The LG V20 from a year ago was the first non-Google phone to arrive with Android Nougat preinstalled. Double tap to automatically zoom in and back out. So make sure your Android is running on the 4.4 update and start shooting off those selfies. Other Android O features include an Autofill API, battery life improvements, and improved Bluetooth audio. However, not all apps will be supported with this feature initially.

Android users are often left wanting more when it comes to their phone's camera.

Trump speaks with Guam governor amid North Korea threat
Guam Governor Eddie Calvo has backed Mr Trump, saying "I want a president" who defends American territories with tough talk. " North Korea's missiles may be one threat to Guam , but scientists are warning of another: climate change", it reads.


In addition to the double tap to zoom feature, the camera app is also adding another feature which should be useful to users - the ability to switch between the photo and video modes using a dedicated button.

Google rolled out Android O developer preview 4 last month.

Android O release date for Google's Pixel and Pixel XL smartphones is said to have been delayed for some unknown reason. Ruddock also says Google is planning "some degree of spectacle" in revealing the final name of Android O, and won't simply be a reveal of a new Android statue on Google's headquarters in Mountain View.

Though Google hid an Octopus Easter egg in the latest preview build of Android O, its more likely that the newest version of Android will go by the name Oreo.
