Google Officially Release Android 8.1 Oreo Update - Check out What's New

After releasing two developers previews, Google has officially started rolling out the stable version of android 8.1 Oreo update. This announcement was made alongside the launch of Google's new OS which is the Android Oreo go.
"We’re excited to announce that this software experience—Android Oreo (Go edition)—is ready, and launching as a part of the Android 8.1 release tomorrow."
Although Google hasn't officially released the changelog for the stable android 8.1 Oreo yet but you can check out the changelog from the previously released developers preview for the same 8.1 Oreo below.

>> Neural Networks API - allows apps to take advantage of hardware acceleration, which should reduce latency, network loads, and keep sensitive data on the device itself. If your phone features a dedicated AI chip, the API will be able to take advantage of it. If not, it will put the load on the CPU.
>> Pixel Visual Core - Google’s first custom-designed co-processor (present on Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL) for machine learning and image processing is now available to third-party developers. Apps that use the Android Camera API will be able to shoot in HDR+.
>> Safer browsing - This feature allows apps to detect WebView attempts which could navigate to known bad URLs.
>> Apps are now limited to one notification alert sound per second.

>> Bluetooth battery indicator in Quick Settings - If you have a Bluetooth device connected to your phone, you'll be able to see how much battery it has left straight from the Quick Settings shade.
Improvements to autofill.
>> Fingerprint scanner security improvement - users will be able to permanently lock out anyone who fails to unlock the device with an unregistered fingerprint multiple times.
>> Colors menu added to Display tab in Settings for Pixel 2 and 2 XL. Three options available - Natural, Boosted, and Saturated.
>> Fixed an issue with Nexus 5X not playing audio through the speaker.
>> Fixed an issue with Pixel 2/2 XL audio distortion in video playback.
>> Fixes for hamburger and beer emojis.

If you happen to own a Pixel or Nexus smartphone then you should receive the update notification anytime from now.
