Everything You Need To Know Android Oreo 8.0 and Pie 9.0

It’s been quite a while since Google launched its new Android operating device “Pie 9.0”, but not a lot of people are familiar with its features or the ones previous to this “Oreo 8.0”.  This blog will feature everything you need to know about the latest two Android OS and how they affect your phone like Features, Android app development etc.

Physical Appearance and Aesthetics:

Android Pie is a lot more colorful with softened edges of interface than Oreo. In short, Pie is more aesthetically sound and has a more rounded view than Oreo plain sheet feels.

Smart features:

Oreo came in with a bunch of smart features such as “Picture-in-Picture”, “Password Autofill” and “Notifications Channels”, while Pie took it to the next level with “Dashboard” and “Sanity Check”, which keep track of all your activity and reports in a more proactive way via notifications.

Pie can impede your use of a certain app once you cross your usage limit. Developers need to keep these features in mind while undertaking Mobile app development.

Night mode and Adaptive Brightness:

Night mode in Oreo took out the blue light and only displayed red and orange, making it soothing on the eyes. Its adaptive brightness worked according to external lights.

Pie, on the other hand, will automatically turn into grayscale and “Do not disturb” mode, once you approach your pre-sleep time. The adaptive brightness adjusts automatically depending on user habits.

Battery Management:

Battery management is the same in both Oreo and Pie as what it used to be in Nougat. Not a lot has changed except for the “adaptive battery”, which often allocated a certain amount of battery to an app working in the background based on prior experience.  No major changes, which mobile app development needs to deal with, or make changes in their apps to run smoothly.

AI and Machine Learning:

A bad AI always used to bug users in Android, although AI in Oreo is much better than previous “Smart text selection”, “Google Play Protect”, “Combat Notification Spam”, and has “better cache data management”. However, Pie has taken it to another level with Machine Learning and algorithm. Pie will be able to predict what you are likely to do, such as playing music or booking a cab, from previous activities.

What’s new for developers?

There is a lot more to Oreo and Pie w.r.t. Android app development frameworks. Google has made it easy for developers to build their app. With the new Display Cutout Class, Google has made it possible for Android app developers to enable a cutout for any device.

Pie has also introduced Person Class which enables the phone to identify the person involved in a conversation. This allows the app to provide image support.

Google security services have also enhanced this with biometric authentication which can be accessed by the various mobile apps.
