A portion of Android smartphone users didn't shift to Android 7.0 Nougat, but still; Google is expected to deliver the Android 8. As a matter of fact, it was anticipated that the Google Pixel 2 will be the first handset to arrive pre-installed with the upcoming software from the biggest search engine company.
According to BGR, the Android 8 will bring three exciting features to Android device owners. The first in line is called the Copy Less which will reportedly give the Android phone users the capability to spontaneously distinguish the important information the users would want to copy from a source when sending a message or even an email. With this feature, the users won't ever be copying and pasting unrelated information.
Another speculated feature that the Android 8 will deliver is somewhat straight from Apple's playbook. This was the capability to tap on an address in a note and then Google Maps will automatically open and give the users direction to that location. This functionality is already present on iOS devices for years and it appears that Google will have this feature too. Unluckily, it was not yet affirmed if the Google Maps links would work on third-party messaging applications.
Last but not the least; it was rumored that the finger gestures might be incorporated in Android 8. One of the gesture commands would let the owner of Android devices draw the letter "C" on their screen to open the contacts. Nonetheless, it was also stated that the gestures could be postponed or scrapped altogether so it was advised to be taken with a grain of salt.
In a separate report, iTWire has learned that the Google Pixel 2 will be a perfect contender to arrive pre-installed with Android 8. It can be remembered that the first Pixel smartphone was announced sporting Android 7.0 Nougat pre-installed although LG G6 managed to be launched first with the said firmware version.
As of this moment, Google hasn't uttered any word about the Android 8 but based on these features it seems that Android smartphone owners could expect a revamped OS from the biggest search engine company. Moreover, it is advised to keep an eye for further announcements so stay tuned.
