Android O Details
Android "O" (for Oreo) details are emerging and there seems to be a few things that will be changing. While I'm sure that the background features and stuff are getting a major overhaul, the reality is that people only see the GUI and that is largely what plays into their user experience. This time around the notifications are getting a major overhaul, which is interesting as notifications seem to be one thing that Android already excells at. Other rumored features include picture in picture mode and more.
In an effort to improve battery life, the next version of Google's OS will also restrict background activities from apps, much in the same way Chrome 57 currently deals with tabs. It will be interesting to see how much the battery life will be extended as a result of these optimizations.
