Android users, rejoice: Android Oreo is officially here. Officially introduced by Google yesterday, the new operating system is largely an incremental update that focuses on speed and security improvements. There are, however, a number of useful new features. For one, users will now be able to make use of picture-in-picture to view two apps at once while the addition of little notification dots should prevent you from being overwhelmed by countless announcements. There’s even a full collection of redesigned emojis and a ton of brand new ones, too. Best of all, though? Oreo is already complete: Google is pushing Oreo now to the Android Open Source Project (AOSP) while those enrolled in the Android Beta Program will receive the final version of the OS.
