The Android 8 is not Octopus. It is not Oatmeal Cookie. It is not some exotic sweet available in some exotic corner of the world. Google has partnered with snack producer Nabsico to call the next version of Android Oreo.
Android Inc. was founded in Palo Alto, California in October 2003 by Andy Rubin, Rich Miner, Nick Sears, and Chris White.Rubin described the Android project as “tremendous potential in developing smarter mobile devices that are more aware of its owner’s location and preferences”.The early intentions of the company were to develop an advanced operating system for digital cameras, and this was the basis of its pitch to investors in April 2004.The company then decided that the market for cameras was not large enough for its goals, and by five months later it had diverted its efforts and was pitching Android as a handset operating system that would rival Symbian and Microsoft Windows Mobile.
Now that we know the history of Android, lets look at the upcoming future waiting for us
Android 8 comes loaded with a bunch of features, speed and security upgrades. Here are some for your deep desire.
Have you had trouble working on two apps simultaneously or missed out notification That you cared about while using different apps, well Android 8 is here for the rescue. Now Android 8 provides you,notification dots let you tap to see what’s new in your apps — like the important ones you put on your home screen — and then take action on those notifications quickly.
Snoozing Individual Notification:
This is undoubtedly one of the best features we can ask for. With this, users can now snooze notifications to reappear at a later time. Meaning, when you receive a message, but you don’t have time to read it, you can just swipe to the right, then tap the clock icon to snooze the notification. Notifications reappear with the same level of importance they first appeared with.
Android 8 Oreo now has the ability to autofill your login details. When you open an app to log in to it, the feature will be able to remember the login details for that particular app and then automatically fill them in and log in. The feature will be a basic password manager of sorts and it will be able to do all this once you have granted the device permission to auto fill such details.

Security is a major focus of Android Oreo, with Google cracking down on the ever-growing problem of Android malware with a new tool called Google Play Protect. Play Protect is built into every device with Google Play, is always updating, and automatically takes action to keep your data and device safe, so you don’t have to lift a finger.
