Picture-in-Picture Working in Google Maps for Android Oreo Users

Motorola has not been quite prompt in rolling out updates in the recent past, as its devices like Moto X Play, Moto G4 Play, Droid Maxx 2 and Moto X Pure Edition are still waiting to receive the Android Nougat update, which was released by Google in 2016.

Android 8.0 Oreo update is the most-anticipated software release for millions of Android users around the world, but not everyone's lucky enough to get it. Google wants users to look for the "Play Protect" logo when buying a new Android device.

The Lenovo-owned Motorola, however, is yet to announce the list of its handsets that are eligible for Android 8.0 Oreo update but several reports have already come up with a possible list.

This modification is part of Google's fight against potentially harmful apps, also referred to as PHAs (potentially harmful apps), which put your device and data at risk and are usually found on third-party stores.

The new Android Oreo also comes with an Autofill feature that when enabled by the user, all the login information such as details and addresses can be filled up for their favorite apps in an instant. Not only are younger users skewing the curve on mobile-apps time spent (those 18-24 are spending 3 hours a day in apps, vs. 2.6 hours for 25-34, and 2.3 hours for 35-44), they're the ones who are downloading new apps. If you decide to deny them that permission, every time a new app tries to install on the device through Chrome, you will be notified. The new feature significantly helps in detecting and removing apps that might be malicious.

Below, you'll find a link to the its APK and, for those unfamiliar with the process of sideloading apps on Android, a simple guide on how to install the launcher on your device.

For this they have tweaked the security settings in Android Oreo.

The good news for mobile device apps is that they account for half of all time users spend engaging with digital media.

But just as there are only so many TV channels and programs viewers can watch, there are only so many notifications and glances mobile users can afford to devote to their apps.
