Android 8.0 Oreo: Features & Highlights




Android started off with no of version & Google's home cooked OS has reached a point where you don't see much changed or any new UI tweaks, Few versions did get a complete makeover but few tried & failed. Android O came up with features which was much needed & few Custom ROM or Third party Launchers were providing it for ages. Stock experience is always better so these features are always welcome. Android O not only brought much needed changes but also made life simpler by adding & tweaking things for which we constantly download numerous Apps or maybe downloaded or rooted our device.

So without further a do let's see what are the notable features & Highlights of Android O:

1. User Interface - UI is something which gives the device a completely new look, when you feel bored with your device look & feel a new UI is the only way to revive things. Android O doesn't brings too much of improvements in terms of UI but keeps things simple & consolidates everything. It gives the UI cleaner look at organizing things in a pretty neat way. Talking about UI, the Main settings you see has clubbed few things which were a separate tab or options previously. The Icons have changed as well with the help of Adaptive Icons which would need developer level help to give it a new look.




   

2. Picture-in-Picture mode (PiP) - PiP mode is the flagship feature of Android O, it was a much needed & can be said the most awaited feature in Android. Having this features gives your smartphone a PC like an experience where one of your App is floating around the screen while you navigate & try to do things. For e.g. While reading some content or texting you can watch a youtube video without any hassle. Split screen can do the same but it sometimes causes a little pain while using split-screen. PiP works with just pressing the home button.



3. Notification Dots - Notification dot is another sweet addon as the Apps shows you a small dot when there is a notification or you can say unread batch counts. This feature is useful as it looks clean rather than showing you the no of notification a small dot does the job. When you tap & hold the Icon it will show you new options, this feature is already available in Nova launcher if you have used it anytime. As always said an inbuilt feature is always the best.



4. Smart text selection & APK source - Smart selection gives you more option when you select any text, it can be selected from a Mail/Browser/Messages etc. For eg., if you select a number it will give you an option to Dail or select whereas previously you have to select, copy open dial pad & then call. APK source is basically for security purpose, some might find this feature helpful while some may feel that it causes a lot of headaches. If you are a user who constantly downloads APK's from 3rd party source then this might be little annoying, 1 or 2 occasions should work completely fine.

5. Bluetooth Support & Auto Fill - High-performance Bluetooth audio was one of the first Oreo features to capture the attention of the Android masses. Sony donated its LDAC codec to Google for inclusion in Oreo, opening up the mobile OS to superior audio connections on supported hardware. Android O gets all tick when it comes to Bluetooth support so that all hardware doesn't sound the same & the true potential can be felt. Auto Fill is something which makes our life simpler by remembering the details you entered. Just how chrome works but this features helps to remember & auto-fill via App-wide.



android-oreo-password-autofill.jpg

6. Battery Optimization - There isn't any phone that provides battery as per our expectation, expectations can be different & also maybe unrealistic. The manufacturer has started to ship devices with bigger battery capacity & also with fast charging support. The main concern is if Android itself is not optimized then this hardware is just like a piece of brick. To change the same Android has made numerous changes when it comes to battery optimization. Android O brings in new optimization wherein the background limit is maintained by OS & Apps which runs without any reasons are cut through the process. The OS has made smarter to know the difference between Active & Passive background activity.





So these were few of the most anticipated features & changes hope you like it. Do share your comments below & let us know your thoughts on the same.

Advantages of the Marshmallow Update!

Adapt-470x246.png 

A bag full of surprises, the Marshmallow update definitely tags along positives. This however is subjective and would differ from one opinion to another. Although, overall, the update does quite a good job and certainly doesn't let you down. If you haven't tried it yet, there's something good is in store for you.
Let me take you through a few advantages of the Marshmallow.



1. Quick Boost!


If you're on Marshmallow and would love to be pampered, here's something we'd like to introduce you to. Remember closing each open window, manually? Having updated to M, All you've got to do now is simply click on the Boost icon to the bottom right of your screen an you're sorted. By simply doing this daily, you would receive a lot more RAM space. 

You could refer to the highlighted portion below!

A Quick Demo Video to take you through this amazing addition.


Advantage: Boosts quickly, thereby extending the phone's Battery Backup!

2. Make use of 'Google Now on Tap'
An absolute new way to use Google Search, the New ' Google Now on Tap' will blow you away. All you'd need to do is long press the Highlighted Home Icon, like shown below .

Whats New on the Asus Zenfone Marshmallow Update???

mainfarb2.jpg 

Android v6.0 Marshmallow
 is one of the best Android version releases yet, cramming in new features for the next-gen experiences. It brings the smartphone experience to a whole new level. Visually it still might look the same as the outgoing Android 5.0 Lollipop, but, whats under the hood is what really matters!!!


And now, with ASUS Zenfones recieving the exciting and much awaited update, lets look at the essential features that come with the Android 6.0 update on a Zenfone.

1) New Volume Control Panel:

The Volume control has a got an visual as well as a function overhaul. The controls are much more minimalised with just the notification volume shown on volume key-press. And unlike lollipop, the 'Volumes' and 'Do Not Disturb' tab are done away with.


1.jpg 

On tapping the slider icon, you furthur get the app and alarm volumes (no change there though)!!!!

2.jpg 


2) Do Not Disturb Mode:


The feature is very much present and carried over from the last version. Except that you wont find the persistent tab under the volume control (on key-press) like lollipop. Instead its moved to quick settings panel under the pull-down menu.


3.jpg 

Tapping on it shows you an expanded peek menugiving you primary fuctions of Total Silence, Alarms only and Priority Only, along with a timer option as to how long you wish to keep the settings. Tapping on 'More settings'takes you to the dedicated 'Do not disturb' page.


4.jpg 5.jpg 

This page now gives you a more refined options rather than Lollipops messy screen that seems confusing at first. With the ability to set 'Disturb Rules', you can customise how your phone should react to notifications and alarms.




3) App Intent:

On Android Lollipop, whenever you received a mail with a link to youtube, the system asks you which app to open with each time. Now on Android 6.0, if you have the correct app already installed, then on clicking the link, it now will take you straight to the Youtube app at the first time itself, without any prompts.

Essentially it lets you narrow down to a more linear and refined cross-app experiences.

4) Automated Backup:

Android previously always missed out on thinking big about how back ups should work. And with the new backup options, Google has beefed it up definately. For eg. now it can save upto  25MB of Appdata  (for each app) on the cloud. The App data is reinstated once the app has been re-installed. Also the the app data saved does not consume your Google Drive space!!!


6.jpg 

5) Network Setting Reset:

Under the 'Backup and reset' option, there is a new setting for 'reseting the Network'. This is a pretty good option if you wish to reset your data connections and bluetooth to begin reconnecting with new devices and or troubleshooting networks issues.


9.jpg 

Resetting will return the device to an unconfigured state.


6) Cut-Copy-Paste:
The CUT-COPY-PASTE was a much desired function on phones about a decade ago, and with android it really has become a neccessity, and we tend to use it on a daily basis. On Lollipop when a text is highlighted, the Cut-copy-paste context bar on the upper side of the active page.


8.jpg 

Well all that gets more organic, you now get an floating option like you see in the image above. This option makes working with the cut-copy-paste functions easier, without having to reach the upper side of the screen for options.

7) Chrome works inside other apps:

Earlier on Android 5.0 and previously, if you clicked on a weblink inside an app, it usually took you to chrome tab or any other default browser. And if you stayed browsing long enough, you probably were kicked out of the app. Now though with 6.0, Chrome now lets the app preload some data before you can access itinside the app itself, without leaving it. This gives you a more seamless app-to-webpage experience


inapp.jpg


Although this is available on lollipops, its way better on Marshmallow


8) USB Plug-in options:

Connecting your Android 6.0 upgraded Zenfone to a computer will now prompt you asking if you wanted to Allow file transfers. The prompt is persistent every time you connect your phone to a computer. The following are the options you get:

  • Charging only: To be used when all you want to do is top off your battery.
  • Transfer files (MTP)Lets you copy files back and forth between your phone and computer using the Media Transfer Protocol. This is likely the option you'll want if you need to copy some files.
  • Transfer files (PTP): Lets you copy files (usually only photos or video) using the Picture Transfer Protocol. This modes makes your computer think you have a digital camera attached, so programs that were designed to connect to a camera can grab photos and video directly from your phone and import them automatically.
  • MIDI: An option you can use if you want to connect a MIDI device — something like a MIDI keyboard — to your phone or tablet and use a synthesizer app to create music on the GO!


Screenshot_20160628-143329.jpg 

All This prevents direct unauthorised direct access a computer, after directly connecting the USB cable. 
9) Doze:

By far one of the biggest features of Android Marshmallow, Doze is the system integrated app on Android M. It essentially can put the device to a lower power-sleep state on a 'per app' basis. Like temporary hibernation, apps come back alive once phone is back on. The phone is able to sense itself if its at complete rest at a place, it checks on sensors like Gyro sensor and the Accelerometers, for movement detection. If laying idle, the phone will automatically enter 'Doze' mode. 


10.jpg 11.jpg 

'Doze' on our Zenfone is called Battery optimisation, you can find it under Settings >>> Battery >>> Battery options(denoted by 3 dots) >>> Battery optimisations. Although you have to note a few things about this new mode :

  • Network access is suspended.
  • The system ignores wake locks.
  • The system does not perform Wi-Fi scans.
  • The system does not allow sync adapters to run.
  • The system does not allow Job Scheduler to run.


12.jpg 

10) Dedicated Google preferences:

What if we wanted a concise list of all things 'Google'? Well, on Marshmallow we get lucky. Under 'Settings', you get a dedicated Google page which lists options from 'Sign-in & Security' and 'Account Preferences', 'Google Fit', '' to 'Google Services'. Under 'Google Services' is an exciting new features called, 'Google Nearby' and 'Nearby Discoveries'. These are next-generation connectivity options that dont require the device to be connected to the same network. It uses the device sensors like Bluetooth, WiFi, and Sound (Uses mic to pickup inaudible sounds) to connect with another device around you. With 'Nearby Discoveries' It can pick up on advertising BLE beacons to push content by App developers to your phone without installing any dedicated app.



rammanager1.jpg 


'Nearby' is yet to pick up in India, least ensured, you are now ready for the future!!! Similarly, 'SmartLock for Passwords' is another exciting feature that lets you sign into apps and websites that are connected to your Google Account without any prompts. Similary you can choose which app you trust before enabling this feature.

11) RAM Manager:

With todays apps reaching as much capacity as it's computer counterparts, they hog on the same kind of memory too. With RAM manager on Marshmallow, it makes hunting down memory hog apps with ease. It's under the 'Settings' page in an option called 'Memory'. Once in, it shows an overview of the RAM occupied from 3 hours to a day.


ram1.jpg rammanager.jpg 

It gives you detailed memory usage information of each app, and also shows what kind of sub-processes the app might call on.

Plus, There are tons more features to look foward to like, the enhanced Gesture Control, a Faster WiFi Tethering, better SIM options....and Many More!!!

Key Features of Android 6.0 Marshmallow

Now the latest release of Google's Android OS is the Android 6.0 Marshmallow. After the lollipop, Marshmallow is going to make Android able to do a lot more for you. The newly launched Google's Nexus Smartphones are the first devices which comes with this fresh Android Marshmallow and more devices are going to taste it soon. Here we are sharing some Key Features of Android 6.0 Marshmallow:


App Permissions:

The App Permissions got a major overhaul and Google will allow users to decide which permissions they want to allow or revoke, based on when those particular functions are used. Unlike the current implementation, Android Marshmallow users will get notifications asking for permissions only when they are using a particular function in an app.
Developers will now be able to ask for permissions on a case-by-case basis. That means when you go to open up the camera in Instagram, for instance, Instagram could deliver a pop-up asking if you want to let it access your camera. That way you know exactly when an app is using a feature and why it's using it. It also means you can download and install an app, use most of it, but prevent it from doing one or two things that you disapprove of.

Google Now on Tap:

This is the standout feature for Android 6.0 Marshmallow. The new Google Now on Tap is a predictive assistant which will take on Google Now. This feature will allow users to get useful information on anything currently running on the phone.
One will have to press and hold the home button while inside of any app, and Google Now will read the screen, look for anything interesting and then return the information via a popup box on the bottom screen. This feature may turn out to be a hit with users, as it turns out to be an incredible and convenient feature. This feature will be incorporated in future Android versions as well.

Fingerprint Support:

Android M will standardize the fingerprint sensor support and it is working with various phones to make a standard API to go with their sensors. You can use your fingerprint to authorize an Android Pay transaction, unlock your device or make Play Store purchases.

Better web experience with Chrome Custom tabs:

The web browsing experience with the Chrome browser also gets a shot in the arm. Chrome Custom tabs, a new feature, that will let you include web-views within a particular app, without the need to switch to the Chrome browser on your phone. The Chrome browser will run atop your app (in case you click on any link within the app).
Features such as automatic sign-in, saved passwords, autofill will work on the apps seamlessly. Also the Chrome Custom tab will take up the colours and fonts of the app it is being opened within, to make it seem like a seamless experience.

Android Pay:

This feature will let you make your payments using near-field communication (NFC) and host card emulation techniques for tap-to-pay services. You just need to unlock your phone, keep it near an NFC terminal and your payment is done, without opening any app. As of this month, Android Pay has been rolled out in more than 1 million locations in the United States
According to Google, Android Pay will be pre-installed on AT&T, Verizon and T-Mobile devices and will be accepted in around 700,000 stores in the US which accept contact-less payment. Android Pay will replace the Google Wallet app and will be used to make in-app payments provided developers integrate Pay into their apps.

Doze:

In an attempt to boost your smartphone battery, Android Marshmallow will feature a smart power-managing feature called Doze. This feature works by letting system optimally manage the background processes. The new OS keeps a tab on the motion detection sensor and if there is no activity for a long time, the system shuts down some processes.


USB Type-C:

Android Marshmallow will also support USB Type-C for charging. Considering USB Type-C is has a bi-directional port, you can use this port to either charge the phone as well as charge another device. With USB Type-C, devices can be charged faster and this makes it a more versatile charging technique.

Miscellaneous:

1. Apart from these main features, some of the other improvements include a better implementation of Copy/Paste function. So in Android  Marshmallow, you will get a floating toolbar just above your selection with the Cut, Copy, Paste options. Direct Share feature will let you share images or links with your most frequently shared contacts or apps, using a single click.

2. In addition, the new Marshmallow will offer a new app drawer which will now scroll vertically instead of horizontally. Top of the menu will also offer the four most recently used apps.

3. Volume controls will also give you a drop-down menu, a feature that is common in the Cyanogen OS.

4. Google also introduced a new RAM Manager which will aim at providing users with a more concrete information regarding the RAM usage of apps. This feature will offer more deeper insights on app demands along with an overall explanation of what effect they have on the device.
