Picture-in-Picture mode

Apple already has this feature, and it was high time Google got it too. As the name suggests, this allows users to operate two tabs at the same time. For example, one can check emails while watching a video on YouTube, at the same time. This may come across as a minor update, but it is beneficial when one wants to indulge in multitasking. Google is also going to bring speedier booting times with its Android O update.

Power-saving feature

Google has upgraded its power-saving feature by implementing stricter restrictions on the smartphone’s background activities. All those unnecessary background functions that ate up mobile data and battery power of the device will be halted when not in use. This feature coupled with a new Doze function will improve the battery performance of a smartphone.
