Android O Preview 3 hands-on: Android 8.0 confirmed

Android O can now automatically colour media notifications based on the album art.

The third Android O Developer Preview hit the Internet yesterday, giving us just one more version before Android O hits final release. While Google’s new OS seems to be mostly in a finished state, there are a few new additions to this third developer preview that are worth mentioning.

Welcome Android 8.0!

Not that the version number of a release really matters, but for people who care about this sort of thing, the third Android O preview spilled the beans on what Android O will be called when it gets released. The “about” screen identifies the OS as “Android 8.0,” killing any speculation about whether it would be called either 8.0 or 7.2. We still don’t know what sugary snack the “O” will stand for, but we’re at least halfway to the real name.
