Unfortunately, there doesn’t seem to be much in the way of new features in this release. We’ll keep an eye out, but this release mainly seems to be a more stable version of past releases. Not to say that’s a bad thing; there are plenty of new features introduce in previous builds of Android O.
One would hope it’s more stable, as Google says the finalized version of Android O will be available “later this summer.” Let’s hope Android manufacturers have been keeping up; both the LG V30 and Samsung Note 8 are rumored to be announced next month, and I’d rather not have to a wait forever to get Android O.
But now onto the most important question: What will the O stand for? I want to say Oreo, but after the disappointment of Nutella/Nougat, I’m not getting my hopes up.
As The Verge points out, there is a new Easter Egg featuring an Octopus, but as far as I know, octopus isn’t a dessert, so I’m going to guess Google is just trolling us.
