Android Wear gets a few tweaks with new Oreo 8.0 update but still won’t be a match

If you're sick and exhausted of dealing with Android problems on your Galaxy S8 (or another device), and you've got a Galaxy S8 lying around, think about trying the Galaxy S8 Oreo beta. Soon after that, the Oreo beta program for the Galaxy S8 was opened, with users finally getting a taste of the latest version of Android. The handset at this price point not only brings better camera quality than the Redmi Note 4, it also flaunts vanilla Android. Google Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 Xl with the second developer preview of Android 8.1 Oreo shall receive the OTA (over-the-air) update.

Xiaomi Mi A1 was unveiled back in September this year carrying a price tag of Rs. 14,999.

The update also enabled HD Voice Calling on the Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL on AT&T, this was not available previously on AT&T on these two handset. We would request you to kindly take a proper backup of all the files and documents saved on your devices and then apply the update operation to the device. However, the same update will roll out for other devices in the coming weeks for sure. The included December security patch also includes a fix for the KRACK Wi-Fi vulnerability.

Being a monthly security patch, the update isn't so big, weighing about 150MB.

The new API system is said to help software developers in adding machine learning functions into their apps. After this, by following some basic instructions, you can update your device with Android 8.1 Operating System. The Note 8 was, surprisingly, snubbed, though, with no actual information as to when users of the plus-sized flagship would get updates. You can manually keep on checking for the update as well.
