While Google's annual developer conference, the Google I/O 2017 is a couple of months away, internet rumors have already begun with speculating Android's next generation operating system version 8.0 is expected to be named with a sugar confectionary as per usual. Google will be holding their annual developer conference in May this year. The same event will play host to numerous features developed by Google and will also witness the announcement of the new Android operating system for this year.
It's been a tradition for Google to name Android operating system versions based on a sweet. The move has been historic since its release of Android Beta. However, the internet speculates Android 8.0 could be named as 'Android Oreo' per reports from PC Advisor. The actual operating system is expected to be implemented in Google's upcoming Pixel 2 smartphones later in October this year.
The reasoning behind Oreo is pretty simple and quickly thought. The naming scheme for Android 8.0 will begin with the letter 'O' and what's better than Oreo cookies? Nothing! Even if Google haven't made a public request for the new name, Oreo might as well be the default choice for everyone.
The Google I/O developer conference will take place from May 17-19 in California. New features for Android 8.0 include a copy-less feature that reportedly helps users to paste automatically copied text content from their previously used application. A Tom's Guide report explains the process, with the data being transmitted to the clipboard in the background, eliminating additional time by requiring users to hard press the words and then selecting the necessary option.
Google are also planning to add a feature to messaging apps that reveals the location of the sent message which in turn could be tracked on Google maps. While such a feature is hugely beneficial, there will be potential privacy compromises for individual users.
