Mobile

Google on Monday pulled the covers off the current variation of its Android mobile os.

Variation 8.0 Oreo has a variety of enhancements over 7.1 Nougat, the previous release of the OS.

Google has actually fine-tuned Android’s alert function, for example, so when an app has notices pending, a dot appears in a corner of the program’s icon. Press the dot and a window will turn up revealing the notices, which can be cleared with a swipe.
