Google has just announced the first developer preview of the next Android version, currently still called Android O. Google has given enough appetizers to have Android fans salivating for the coming Android release, which is going to be a rather big one based on this list.
Android O features have already been leaked before, so it’s pretty much a confirmation of those. Picture-in-Picture, for example, is really coming and not just to tablets but also to smartphones. Android O is also putting a lot of focus on audio. In addition to a new AAudio API for low-latency sound, Google has worked closely with its hardware partners, specifically Sony, to improve wireless audio handling via the Bluetooth LDAC codec. Google boasts that its hardware partners have contributed significantly to improving Android O.
