I’d love to tell you that I have more news to share on this post-holiday Tuesday outside of Oreo updates for phones, but that’s what we’re working with. And hey, Oreo updates are awesome, especially since it’s not yet 2018 and companies are coming through.
The update is software version OP217.1 and is Android 8.0, not Android 8.1.
What’s new in Android 8.0? The screenshot above doesn’t say, but in general, Android 8.0 brought picture-in-picture mode, notification channels, notification dots to the launcher, native autofill support for password lockers, fresh emoji, and more. You can see the full list here.
To check for the update, head into Settings>About phone>System updates.
Some of our best videos.
