Hot new app? Most of us can't be bothered to download it

Hot new app? Most of us can't be bothered to download it

There are basically two kinds of Android devices out there in the world - ones that are certified by Google and come preinstalled with Google apps (including the Play Store), and ones that aren't.

With Google's new mobile OS iteration Android Oreo now official, the first eligible devices such as the Pixel and Nexus smartphones have already started receiving it.

Inside of version 9.60 for Google Maps, Picture-in-Picture (PiP) support appears to be live for folks running Android 8.0. Unlike there's any big update, Google doesn't disclose the changelogs of this app.

You'll need to Root and Install TWRP Custom Recovery in-order to Install the Android 8.0 Oreo Rom on Nexus 6 (Shamu). But the relentless work of Google developers has made it a very premium app for the Android users. "Users who have enabled the installation of apps from unknown sources leave themselves vulnerable to this deceptive behavior". This is the closest any Android smartphone user can get to Android Oreo without rooting the phone or owning a compatible device. Motorola didn't seed Android Nougat to Moto G3, Moto E3, Moto E3 Power, Moto G2 (2nd Gen), Moto G3, and Moto G3, so it's only normal to guess that these mobile phones will not get the new firmware update either.

The new permission system will not just show an enable/disable toggle but will also show the apps which are being used to run third-party app stores. What happens if your device is not certified by Google? There is also an updated list of OEMs and partners that have certified Android devices, check it out here. Play Protect is Google's new security suite, and it leverages machine learning to weed out malicious apps by regularly scanning and verifying apps on customers' phones. So if you are using the Chrome browser or Amazon app store to download an app, the new permission system will provide the option to "always allow apps" or "ask every time" before an app downloaded from Chrome or Amazon app store can be installed.
