Google announced its Oreo software program at its I/O Conference in May. Since then, the company released a couple of developer previews of its update until finally, it was made available for official use just two weeks back. Major smartphone manufacturers are working towards getting the Oreo update on their devices now. The list includes names like Sony and Nokia. The devices that have received Android Oreo are mostly high-end smartphones. Another firm that joins them is Motorola. According to a report by Tech Radar, the company announced a list of devices that will receive Android Oreo.

It is worth noting that there are only a few phones which have received Oreo so far.

Here's the list of phones that will receive Android Oreo

The list of Motorola smartphones includes Moto Z, Moto Z Force, Moto Z2 Force, Moto Z Play, Moto Z2 Play, Moto X4, Moto G5, Moto G5 Plus, Moto G5S and Moto G5S Plus. While an exact date for the roll-out hasn’t been specified yet, it is believed that it will be sometime this autumn. It is obvious that the software upgrade won’t be deployed for all smartphones around the world at the same time. It will take time, probably weeks, for the roll-out to be released completely. The list of smartphones that have already received the update includes Google Pixel, Pixel XL, Nexus 5X and Nexus 6P.

There are a lot of new things that will arrive in the update. It is further accompanied by a wide variety of bug fixes and security enhancements as well.

The features of the new version of Android

One of the main features in Oreo is the special “Picture in Picture” mode. Android users will now be able to operate two windows at the same time.

For example, users will be able to watch a video on YouTube and compose a message on Gmail at the same time on two simultaneous windows.

The user interface has received quite a few tweaks as well. Its control panel is made more user-friendly. Apart from this, the bug fixes arriving in Oreo are very important. There’s a new malware detected in smartphones (especially those operating on Nougat) that gives open access to hackers via Bluetooth.

The fix for this is apparently included in Oreo. Therefore, it is crucial that smartphones receive Oreo as soon as possible, otherwise, the chances of them being hacked by users are high. Google is also working towards the launch of its next-generation Pixel line-up of smartphones. The company is speculated to hold the launch-event on 4th October.
