And after the last preview that was made available in July, the next thing to expect would be the official live streaming of the same, where Google would be revealing Android O to the world.

Picture in Picture Display: The new Android O features picture in picture display. Since Google has already revealed a great deal about its next OS via developer and public betas, the biggest mystery remaining is what it's planning to call the software.

Thanks to several developer preview releases, we mostly know what's in Android 8.0 Oreo.

Google is going to release the next version of Android, now known as Android O, on August 21.

Throw in more than 60 new emoji, fingerprint scanner gesture support, customizable lock screen shortcuts, and better battery and power management, and you can see why Android users have been excited. Although, on August 21, the program has themed to the solar eclipse.

Other than that, Android O will also host a smarter text selection. For 2016 flagships, you'll be waiting even longer than that-usually something like eight months to a year.

In addition, Google has also dropped some hints about the name of Android O. The company shared a teaser video with the file name GoogleOreo_Teaser_0817_noDroids (1).mp4 on Google Plus.

Google and Oreo's maker, Mondelez, referred to their deal as a partnership, rather than a sponsorship, as no money was exchanged. The support for Android 5.0 Lollipop devices will be added soon.
