Google Assistant Now Officially Available for the OnePlus 3 & 3T

Google Pixel 2 Latest News, Updates, All That You Need To Know

The final version in expected to be released in the autumn but an updated version of the preview will be available to other users soon.

Check out the Google Android Developers blog where Dave Burke, VP of Engineering, runs through the new software. Android O is still at its earliest stages, and some things can still change drastically, for better or for worse.

To uninstall Android O following your trials you will need to download and flash to your device a factory image of Android Nougat. While this is the pre-alpha version of Android O, it still gives a sneak peak of the additions that will be coming out when it releases later this year, although not in the fully fledged form. In order to apply this, pull down on the notification bar from the upper part of the screen, then slowly swiping to the left or right. In general, users will have greater control over notifications and which ones they want to see displayed onscreen. And while it will probably be a year or more until it arrives to a meaningful number of phones, here is one welcome new feature in Android O: it will allow you to easily set a custom ringtone for calls, notifications and messages. Take a preview of these new themes from and let us know which one you like most: Contempo, Soho, Emporio, Notable.

Hezbollah commander Mustafa Badreddine 'killed by own men'
Badreddine was a key suspect in the 2005 assassination in Beirut of Lebanese ex-premier Rafiq Hariri. The 55-year-old Badreddine was allegedly in charge of Hezbollah's military operations in Syria.

Originally spotted in Android Nougat, the picture-in-picture mode was kept hidden for unknown reasons, but it will finally be turned on in Android O as it appears.

Nougat already introduced Doze-on-the-go, a handy way of keeping your apps from sapping valuable battery life when your phone was hibernating.

Although the Android update process covers all devices running Android KitKat 4.4.4 and later, which accounts for 86.3 percent of all active Android devices worldwide, it's a sure bet that updates still depend on geographic location, carrier, and manufacturer. This of course may be a glitchy experience as it's an incomplete version of Android's latest mobile OS.
