Android Oreo supports theming without root

Android Oreo supports theming without root

HTC has confirmed that Android 8 Oreo will be making its way to at least three of its handsets - U11, U Ultra and 10 - by the end of the year. It does not require you to root your device. It is called Android Oreo as many smartphone geeks suspected. Pixel and Nexus users will be among the first to get the new update, which is not surprising at all. The tweet reads, "We're excited to bring Android 8.0 to the HTC U11, U Ultra, & 10, beginning with U11 in Q4". " The HTC U11 is the new flagship from the company with the squeezable edges on the side, and as the tweet makes it clear this will be the first to get the Android 8.0 update". Along with a number of other such changes and features, Android 8.0 Oreo also brings the support for system-wide themes without the need for a root. Oreo is pretty much the only choice for an "O" dessert that's broadly and instantly recognizable, however, so it seems like it was nearly inevitable. We know that Android Oreo will not be made available for most of the devices out there officially, but you can still enjoy the look and feel of it by downloading Android O Wallpapers, Ringtones and much more.

Android Oreo mainly focuses on battery life, speed and security, with greater control of apps.

Newborn SC baby name honors historic 2017 solar eclipse
Most of the parents said they were going to save pictures and newspaper clippings of the eclipse for their babies' scrapbooks. All babies born at the Greenville hospital on the day of the eclipse were given special onesies to commemorate the event.

The update supports several new features, including picture-in-picture video, notification dots, more privacy controls and a redesigned set of emojis.

As of now, few settings like the option to change the shape of icons and Google wallpapers are not seen on a few devices, hopefully, this might be rectified in the upcoming updates.
