Android O to release on August 21

Android O tipped to launch on August 21 Expected features

Developer Preview 5 of Android Things OS is out, now based on Android O

Earlier this month, it was reported that the Android O may debut in the second week of this month.

Google has released the latest developer preview of their IoT platform, Android Things today with Dev Preview 5 now available. The major improvement is a shift to a foundation of Android O, the nickname for what is expected to be an Android 8.0 release due in the next few months. However, the tweet from Ruddock states that the Android O update for Pixel has been pushed back.

We are all excited for the launch of Android O. Are you? You will need to update your application for DP5, then create a new update and push it via the console yourself.

There is a possibility that the Android O may still contain some bugs and the company is trying to fix them before releasing a stable version for the Google Pixel smartphones.

The previous attack targeted a prayer ceremony, and the U.S. similarly claimed that the praying civilians were "ISIS members". But the Taliban denied involvement, saying official claims implicating the group were "baseless propaganda" against it.

Ahead of their Premier League opener, Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho is confident his side can maintain his flawless second-season record.

And it's not clear why Google would make a big deal about Android O, beyond installing a new Android statue as is customary every year.

Android O will replace the existing Android Nougat or Android 7.

After going through four developer previews, Android O may be just days away from an official release. Earlier rumors have revealed that this year Google will be releasing the Android O earlier this year.

There's really no way of telling for how long Android O for Pixel phones is going to be delayed. On the other hand, the iPhone 8 is coming in September, so Google may be looking to steal some of Apple's thunder with a splashy Android O name unveiling event. What's more of a spectacle than the cookies of an Oreo eclipsing its cream? There was also no clue or hint regarding the correlation between the upcoming solar eclipse and the name of Android O. Google made no mention of any new x86-based boards to round out its Android Things offerings.
