Google Android Oreo: There Is More To It

If you own a top-of-the-range Android device you won’t ever be using Android Go’s features, but for those who can’t afford dazzling phones it makes a lot of sense to bring the highlights of Android O to those on tighter budgets.

On your Google Home or Android device, it’s as simple as saying “Ok Google, send $10 to Jane for pizza”. Android O is available now as a developers preview.
As expected, the Google I/O 2017 has marked the beginning of the official Android O public beta program. This version should be more stable and easier to install. Are you excited about the Android Go and if yes, then why? It will be made available first to Nexus and Pixel devices.
