Half Of Google Android Devices Didn't Get A Security Update In 2016

We're not sure if Apple plans on easing this up anytime soon, although we guess for the most part users have made peace with that, but for Android users, things are about to get easier. You can download the file from Google Developer's site. The company is taking several steps to offer an improved Android experience, whether that means extending battery life, offering more granular control over notifications, or overhauling the Settings app. Defying expectation, however, Chainfire, developer extraordinaire known for his SuperSU utility, has announced a preliminary root for Android O on the Nexus 5X and the Nexus 6P, just days after the first Android O developer preview was announced. These notification badges are the small numbers that you see on apps like mail and messages that show number of unread messages.

One of the most hated UI element as a result of multiple flavors of Android is the inconsistency in the icons. The Google Nexus 7 (2017) will most likely have the fastest chip in the market, the Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 with 6 to 8 GB of RAM and 64GB of internal storage expandable to 2TB, Neurogadget reported.

Notification Handling: As for notification handling, the new software has come with some advancement.

The Android O Developer Preview has simplified the way in which custom ringtones, alarm sounds, and notification sounds can be assigned. The major difference between the two is that the Google Assistant takes advantage of a friendlier, more conversational interface. Google calculates that only 0.05 percent of all Android devices that got apps only from Google Play had a potentially harmful app installed at the end of 2016.

For the unfamiliar, users can instruct the Google Assistant to carry out specific tasks on their smartphone.

Yet few Android devices can boast of impressive patch rates. To achieve this, the American multinational technology company is introducing new limits which prevent apps running in the background and from absorbing all of the charges out of the gadget's battery.

How can I update to Android O right now?
