Launching of new Android version starting with the letter 'O'

After  lot of discussion about the name of the new version of Android, it had been named as Nougat.

Now  September  2017 will witness the launching of the next android version starting with the letter O.  Developer preview  had been launched  already.  A developer preview is to show the developers the advances and differences between the old version and new version.   It  has been aimed to make necessary  arrangements  to  developers in developing their apps to suit to the new version.

While there was an overhaul in the Nougat , that changes can’t be expected from the ‘O’ version.
Android O developer preview is available for the Pixel, Pixel XL, Nexus 6P, Nexus 5X,Pixel C and Nexus player

 The good thing about this developer version is that you can roll back to your OS when ever you needed .  It require only computer knowledge and the ability to follow the direction to the letter. 

Picture-in-Picture mode
Which is already available on Android TV is coming to Android O.  This is mostly used for video playback.
Improved keyboard control
As Android O wont be restricted to phones, there will be improved arrow and tab key navigation for when used with a physical keyboard.
Connectivity  improvements

Wi-Fi Aware will allows apps and nearby devices to discover and communicate over Wi-Fi without an internet access point. There will also an improved Bluetooth support for high-quality audio through the Sony LDAC codec, and new ways for third-party calling apps to work with each other and with your network operator's special features.
