Android O to release on August 21

Despite some recent reports suggesting that Android O may be delayed, a Twitter post from Evan Blass suggests that all is well and Android O will launch on August 21. Google has been working hard to refine the underlying operating system for improved battery efficiency and overall ease of use, and the new Android O feature set reflects this. The prolific tipster asserts that Android O's release is scheduled for the week of 21st August, most likely on the 21st itself. This is the final beta build before the stable build gets rolled out. Earlier info had said that the newest version of Android will receive it's name on the 21st ( on the day of solar eclipse) and now we hear that it will be launched as well on the same day.

Android O will be available to the Nexus 5X, Nexus 6P, Nexus Player, Google Pixel, Google Pixel XL, and Google Pixel C. Once it's released, other Android device makers will take the update and customize it with their own special features and overlays before releasing it to their own devices.

People can sign-up for Google's Android O Beta from google.com/android/beta, where they'll have to sign in with their Google account.

AK Steel Holding Corporation (NYSE:AKS) Trading Volume Significantly Higher
Axiom Securities restated a "sell" rating on shares of United States Steel Corporation in a research note on Thursday, March 16th. Finally, Bank of New York Mellon Corp boosted its position in shares of Timken Steel Corporation by 115.2% in the first quarter.

In a nutshell, Android O brings several under-the-hood changes with new features like Notification badges, new emojis, auto-fill API's, Picture-in-Picture mode and more. Talking about enhanced battery performance, the background limits will put some restrictions on apps.

In addition to the double tap to zoom feature, the camera app is also adding another feature which should be useful to users - the ability to switch between the photo and video modes using a dedicated button.
