There have been reports that the new Android update-- Oreo-- could be coming to users at this year's Google's annual I/O conference which just two months away.

With that being said, there's a lot of anticipation surrounding what the Android Oreo could bring to the table in terms of new features and the like.

According to 9to5Google some rumored features have been leaked and some of those have been detailed below.

Picture in picture mode: As is already seen on the iPad and some bespoke third-party launchers, as well as Google's own Android TV platform, this would let you have one app (or app function, such as a video player) remain open and on top of another separate app plane.

App icon badges: On oldie that's been knocking around for years on iOS and some third-party launchers, this would bring at-a-glance waiting notification number bubbles to app icons on the homescreen, as a native Android feature.

Restricted background activities: A power saving feature, this would de-prioritise app functions running in the background, going easier on your battery at the possible expense of having to reload some app functionality that would otherwise have been ticking over in the background.

Notifications: A vague suggestion that new notification types could be brought to Android, or that their current way of being displayed would change.

Smart selection: Perhaps the most interesting and potentially useful teased feature, this would integrate with Google Assistant to scan app text, pre-emptively highlighting important information (like phone numbers and addresses) for more easy copy-and-pasting between apps and text entry fields.

Adaptive app icons: As the name suggests, this would let app icons change dynamically on homescreens. As a crude example, think of a calendar app icon that changed to show the appropriate date on a daily basis.

All this comes in addition to new, undisclosed features that will make Android more relevant and attractive to enterprise users. 

Google is yet to confirm any of this, so it's safe to say this should be taken with some Skepticism, but it'll be interesting to see what Google eventually go with.

Till then.
