Check out the 3 Game Changing new features reportedly coming to Android 8.0 | Mobile phone latest news Google+ Follow Smartfonefreaks on Twitter

Android 8.0 is coming, that much's for sure and while the 7.0 Nougat is just about 5 months, we still expect the new update soon. 

Reports indicate that Google will unveil the next Android version (8.0) at I/O 2017 on May 17. Expected to be called Android O, a recent report suggests that the new operating system could include three new smart features.

The first of these 3 is what's called the ‘Copy Less’ feature which could help you save some stress when copy pasting. What this feature is expected to do is get your Android to detect relevant information that the user might want to copy. So say you and a friend are discussing where to have dinner and you find somewhere good
 in an app, when you go back to your conversation and type “it’s at,” one automatically generated suggestion in Gboard would be the restaurant’s address.” This, of course, reduces the whole thing of copy and pasting relevant info.


The second feature is one that's already in use with Apple’s iOS. The iPhone messaging app automatically detects an address from a message, and tapping on it launches the Maps app to point you to the location. While the feature isn’t available on Android at present, it could debut with Android O.

The last but by no means the least will reportedly bring finger gesture features to the Android from inception. Manufacturers like Huawei, LG and others have added gesture features where drawing ‘C’ opens the camera app, ‘M’ opens the music app and so on. The same is also available on custom ROMs such as Lineage OS, Cyanogen OS, OxygenOS and more. Now, this could soon come as a part of the Android OS. 

So May is like a couple of months away, we'll probably know more as time goes on, but it's difficult not to get excited.
