[Gallery] Every New Feature Of Android O Developer Preview 2

 

Android O is now stable enough to use as a daily driver. Major additions in this release include notification dots, visual changes, and fixes for bugs from the first release in March. So, here is a list of all the new features which are present in the update, follow along :






Redesigned quick settings

In Developer Preview 2, we have a redesigned quick settings toggles. Notably, the date and settings shortcut icon have been moved and are now below the row of toggles.
Also, the entire panel is now white with black text and icons displayed against the brighter background.


Notification dots + redesigned app shortcuts

They also added a new feature called notification dots with the new redesigned long press shade. The shortcuts are now displayed in a unified panel that features shortcuts to the widget panel and app info page. The latter two options are still accessible on apps that don’t feature shortcuts.

More information in Security & Location

The Security & Location settings page now surfaces relevant security information. The patch level date is now easily accessible instead of buried in the System page.

Picture-in-Picture in System UI Tuner

The System UI Tuner now features a customization to add a drag or fling gesture in order to minimize picture-in-picture.
Change app icon shape

The latest version of the Pixel Launcher allows users to change the shape of app icons to Square, Rounded corner rect, Squircle, or Cylinder. At the moment, only some of the first-party Google apps change their icon when the setting is applied.

Files app renamed back to Downloads

The first O Developer Preview renamed the Files app to Downloads. This move (along with the app icon) has been reversed in DP2.

Night Light Intensity slider

In Settings, there is a new slider to tune the intensity of Night Light to be either cooler or warmer.

New blob-less emoji style

Charging indicator on Ambient Display

In the update, Ambient Display gets a lightning bolt-shaped charging indicator to the right of the time.
