Google Says Android O Will Make Your Phone Reboot Twice As Fast And Fasters Apps

 

Today at Google I/O, Google introduced some new interesting figures about the upcoming Android O release. Namely, it should be a lot faster in certain regards. Google says that the Pixel, for example, will reboot up to twice as fast on Android O compared to Android Nougat.





Google also improved the performance of 
apps, for example Google Sheets, Google claimed that when running a set of typical workload benchmarks in the app, Sheets completed operations over twice as quickly in these scenarios. How exactly this is happening, again, is unclear. But it's certainly good news - faster apps are better apps.
The fast reboot times will reduce the amount of time necessary to install an OTA update on your device. Last year at I/O, Google announced seamless updates which basically allows your to install updates in the background while you can continue to use the device. Rebooting is still something that has to happen with seamless updates, though, and it sounds like Android O should make that process even faster.
