Oreo: Google announces release of the next version of Android 8 (The Guardian)

The Guardian: Oreo: Google announces release of the next version of Android 8. “The main focus of Android Oreo is on battery life, speed and security, with greater control of apps the primary feature. Following on from the changes made by first Android 6 Marshmallow and Android 7 Nougat, Google is slowly moving Android in the direction of its rival Apple’s iOS with greater restrictions on what an app can and cannot do in the background.”
