One week after Google officially announced Android O and released the first developer preview, the company has posted a new video that goes through some of the changes included in O.
The six-minute video walks through several of the new features of Android O, like autofill, picture-in-picture, and more. While the video is very developer-focused — it is a video about the Android O Developer Preview on the Android Developers YouTube channel, after all — there’s still some interesting tidbits in there for us non-developers.
For example, the video explains some of the limits on background apps, like that apps requesting background location will only get updates a few times per hour. The video also says that all apps targeting Android O must implement the new notification channels feature, or notifications won’t be shown. We also get a peek at what the new picture-in-picture feature looks like, which you can see below.
The Android O Developer Preview is now available for the Pixel, Pixel XL, Pixel C, Nexus 5X, Nexus 6P, and Nexus Player. There’s no OTA update available here, though, so you’re going to have to manually flash your device’s image if you want to give this early O release a try.
Google plans to release Android O Developer Preview 2 in mid-May, followed by Developer Preview 3 in mid-June, Developer Preview 4 in mid-July, and then the final public release in Q3 2017.
