I’ve been running the Android O Developer Preview since Google released the file images, and in approximately four days of daily use, I can say that it’s a relatively stable update which has promise, and I intend to keep running.
The settings application has been completely revamped. There are small user interface changes across the board including a cleaner status bar typeface, ability to add ringtones natively, notification channels, picture-in-picture video, a new autofill API, potential theme framework, and a refined Files app to name a few. Oh, and new libraries for things like aptX bluetooth streaming. 🙂
The beauty of owning a Pixel device is having the opportunity to try out these developer previews and receive final releases immediately from Google. I’m going to stick with Android O (hopefully “Oreo”) and see how the ecosystem evolves in the coming months with updates.
