Android O Developer Preview 3: Final APIs, Notifications Revamp, and Stability

Android O Developer Preview debuted progressing than expected, final night. It brings us closer to a central launch of Android O, now with only one developer preview left for a fast chronicle to arrive. The latest recover comes with fortitude enhancements and some new features.

In this article, we will take we by all a new changes that have arrived with Android O Developer Preview 3.

Revamped Notifications

We see a slight redesign for notifications in a latest preview. The initial good change being a neat blueprint for media notifications (for videos and music). It now follows a tone intrigue of a image, as in, it shifts to a unchanging tone intrigue with a vanishing background. We would call it an immersive blueprint as it turns a concentration on a picture with a balmy background. The Android System now shows a determined presentation when an app is using in a background, though for those who find it annoying, we can always spin it off by a presentation channel.

Enhanced Icons

Say bye to a aged “Cylinder” made icons, this preview brings dull block made icons that demeanour most better. There is also an choice for Teardrop icons that look like Google’s Allo and Duo icons.

Goodbye, customization choice (Google moan story)

Theming engine that debuted in a final preview, is now seen nowhere in a new preview. That’s only Google doing what it does mostly i.e. stripping facilities here and there. Although a theming engine did not indeed work in a final build, we were anticipating to see it in movement with a new preview. However, there are chances that we might get to see it in a subsequent build. Google also private a dark System UI Tuner menu, that used to come accessible for changing a on-screen symbol blueprint and close shade shortcuts in a final build.

The final APIs for Android 8.0

Yes, Android O is now strictly Android 8.0 (no warn there, right). The “About” territory of latest build suggested a apparent in a latest preview. This build is a finalé for all a APIs and apps on Android 8.0, and they will be a ones that we will get to see on Play Store when a OS chronicle goes official.

Google sticks to schedule

Google seems to be on lane for creation Android 8.0 final chronicle official. The subsequent build will be a final spike in a package, and afterwards we will get a central version. To recall, Android 7.0 Nougat went central on Jun 30 final year, some-more than a month forward of a fast recover schedule. In contrariety to a final preview, a latest one comes with improved fortitude and performance. Google has indeed squashed a lot of bugs that tormented a prior version. Admittedly, users will learn new bugs in this recover too, though for now, things are looking good.

You can follow a beam to implement a latest Android O Developer Preview on your device.
