Following are the main features in Android Oreo, which were not included in the Android Nougat or previous versions.

  1. Picture in Picture Android Oreo has launched Picture in Picture mode which allows mobile activities to be done in multi windows. Previously this feature was not available in any Android version. However, this features was available in the Android TV, but now in Oreo version this feature is officially added in to the mobile.

4. Multi Display Support

Android Oreo has likewise expanded the stage’s fitness for non-portable gadgets with the expansion of multi-show support.In the event that an application is running on a gadget with numerous acts and an action underpins multi-window mode then clients can move the action starting with one show then onto the next. At the point when an application dispatches an action, the application can determine which show the movement should keep running on.

5. As time passes, Android focused its attention to implement its features on a desktop OS. For instance some applications, for example, remote desktop observers , virtualization customers, and games benefit from having the capacity to control the mouse pointer. Pointer catch is another component in Android Oreo that gives such control by conveying all mouse occasions to an engaged view in an application. The application can request pointer catch and characterize an audience to process caught pointer occasions. The mouse pointer is covered up while in this mode.

So as should be obvious there are lots of reasons why Android Oreo is superior to Android Nougat. The main disappointing thing is that unless you claim a Pixel or a Nexus then you will need to wait and watch when Android is accessible on your gadget. Likewise, a portion of the feature like Bluetooth 5 will just work with gadgets that have Bluetooth 5 equipment and Android Oreo together.
