The final and 4th developer preview of Android O or Android 8.0 is here. Back in the previous month, the tech giant Google released developer preview 3 for its customers and today, the company has released its possibly final beta version of Android O.
This preview 4 is said to be the stable version as it comes with a lot of bug fixes and other performance as well as security improvements. Android Developer Blog has something to tell us and it says:
As we put the finishing touches on the Android O platform, today we’re rolling out Developer Preview 4 to help you make sure your apps are ready. This is the final preview before we launch the official Android O platform to consumers later this summer. Take this opportunity to wrap up your testing and publish your updates soon, to give users a smooth transition to Android O.
In this update, if we tap multiple times on the Android Version in settings, it is showing a floating Octopus now. So Android Octopus?
