Google releases last developer preview before Android O release

Google releases last developer preview before Android O release

The previous update finalized the new APIs that were being added to the platform and this update focuses on making things stable by squashing some bugs. We'll be testing it soon, but we can confidently guess it'll probably run just about all of your apps without fail-something that developer preview 3 couldn't do.

In addition to helping Google vet its OS, betas like this give enthusiastic users a sneak peek of what to expect in the next major release. No other device is supported for the beta release. This includes the Nexus 5X, Nexus 6P, Nexus Player, Pixel C, Pixel and then the Pixel XL. the company has also made emulator images made available to developers for handsets, Android Wear and Android TV. After this release, the next move for Google is to officially launch the still-unnamed Android O to supported devices.

Google is ready to release Android O later this summer, which means we are nearly at the end of the development process.

Google's latest update and the accompanying is encouraging app developers one last time to get the ball rolling on implementing Android O's marquee features into their apps. The Easter egg can be found by going to Settings - System - About phone - Android version, and when you see the "O" logo, hold it until the octopus appears. Lastly, Google Play is now open for applications compiled against or targeting API 26. We still don't have an official codename for Android 8.0, but that's not stopping the company from introducing a new Easter egg to this new dev preview.
