Android Oreo update causing Google Pixel and Nexus mobile data bug

Android Oreo update causing Google Pixel and Nexus mobile data bug

All the three devices from OnePlus including OnePlus 3, 3T and 5 handsets are eligible to get the Android Oreo update.

The good news is that Google appears to be aware of the issue and are working on a fix.

Meanwhile, Android Nougat is gaining adoption up from 13.5 per cent in August to 15.8 per cent this month.

As of now, there is no specific release date from the company but we can expect it to be pre-installed with Oreo or receive the same as an OTA update soon after its release.

Nintendo Switch Online app update fixes one major issue
Nintendo just released an update for their Nintendo Switch online chat app, rendering it slightly more useful than it was before. Players will now be able to continue use voice chat when their phones enter sleep mode, as well as while they use other apps.

With the launch of the Pixel 2 expected within weeks, this type of thing should really have been ironed out, though, in reality, we all know that these things happen.

Just last month, Android 8.0 Oreo was made public for the Android users. This means that the AOSP Oreo and Lineage OS 15 ROMs that are featured are built from the ground up by dedicated community members, and thanks to proprietary bits of code in some phones' hardware drivers and other bits, may not work completely at this time.

Google Android 8.0 Oreo brings a host of improvements and new features to Android like Picture-in-Picture (PiP) mode, better battery optimization and more.

According to recently posted findings on forums and sites such as Reddit, the operating system apparently bypasses and neglects the user's Wi-Fi connection and instead eats up the plan's mobile data.

Georgia Power offers update on state-wide outages
The utility reports it has served more than 30,000 customers since Sunday night in the wake of Irma, according to its outage map . Nathan Deal said Tuesday. "This is one where the entire state of Georgia has been affected by this hurricane/tropical storm".

This might be a slight oversight from Google as the Android 7.1.2 OS has been on the Google Pixel devices for about 10 months now.

At this point only a few carriers have confirmed plans to release Android 8.0 updates for Nexus devices.

The latest version of Android, 7.x codenamed "Nougat", is advancing. Surprisingly, we have now spotted the same device on the benchmarking site and it has been shown to be running on the latest Android 8.0.0 Oreo.
