Android 8.1 Oreo is the next Version of Android; Revealed

Google's Nexus 6P and Nexus 5X Android Oreo updates are now available to beta testers. We'll update this post to let you know, of course.

While the data cap is technically a part of Android 8.0's feature list to ensure users can avoid bill shock for out-of-allowance data charges, the system doesn't seem to take into account any network plans that offer prorated data for certain applications.

XDA Developers comprises of the biggest community collection of the custom ROMs for Android 8.0 Oreo. But yes Google will still be sending you the monthly security patch.

The second-gen Pixels will be the first devices to launch running Android 8.1, when the same lands in October.

And there is also a brand new icon for the search feature of Google Lens.

Both Google Pixel, Nexus 6P and Nexus 5X owners with the Oreo update installed later confirmed that the bug was impacting multiple users.

But, if previous released pattern is taken has any indication, Samsung is expected to add custom features to Android Oreo, like the way it did with the Android Nougat and most probably complete the testing in a month or two.

Such is the case with the recently released Android 8.0 Oreo update, in which some users are reporting that despite WiFi being turned on, their devices are still consuming mobile data.

As for now, Google's Pixel and Nexus phones are the only ones to taste the latest Android due to no UI modification present on them.

Google says it can't guarantee Android version updates for the two devices after September 2017 which means an official move to the company's rumored Android P update is unlikely.

Users who are using Nexus 6, we have a small update for you guys regarding the new Android 8.0.
