However, sources speaking to 9to5Google have let slip a few rumored features that we may now expect to see come the update's anticipated May unveiling.

According to the report, Android O may feature new notifications, app icons badges for notifications, picture-in-picture mode, smart text selection and gesture support, and a new policy to restrict background app activities. One of them is updated notifications.

Though the full Android O platform will be released only in the fall along with the Pixel 2 smartphones, there are a few rumors regarding the same. If you have a device running the first beta build, you too should get the update notification soon. In this scenario, notifications would intelligently display only on whichever device a person is now using. One rumor that is unsubstantiated at this point is that Android O is going to have picture-in-picture mode. Since the company's Android Nougat Developer Preview released in March past year, it is expected to come out with the Android 8.0 Developer Preview soon.

Brexit: Three key things to watch as article 50 is triggered
The divorce is likely to focus on settling up bills and - hopefully - agreeing a transitional arrangement. But it's unclear whether Article 50 is legally reversible.

Just so as to bring you closer, the latest names should also have something to with the final dimensions of the Google Pixel 2 phones.

Obviously, regardless of confidence score numbers, we'll have to treat these reports exclusively as rumors until we hear something meaningful from Google itself. As a crude example, think of a calendar app icon that changed to show the appropriate date on a daily basis. There will be several other features added to Android O, including "tons of enterprise stuff", according to the rumor mill.

The new update is expected to make the Google Bar more useful, by introducing a floating toolbar powered by Google Assistant. As has always been the case, the new version of Android will arrive while its immediate predecessor is still barely a blip on the radar, in terms of market share. This can be seen in Android 7.0 Nougat as well. The most popular version of Android is Lollipop (Android 5.0 to 5.1), which is installed on 32.5 percent of Android devices, followed by Marshmallow (Android 6.0) at 31.3 percent.
