Google recently indicated via its Android Beta Program web site that a beta version of Android O will soon be available. Google released a preview version of Android O for developers earlier this year, though it is not stable enough for everyday use. The forthcoming build will be more stable for public beta testing ahead of Android O's full release. Google is expected to make this first beta build of Android O available as an over-the-air download later this month, coinciding with its I/O developer conference scheduled for May 17-19. The primary consumer-facing function of Android O is a picture-in-picture viewer for Android phones (this feature is already available to Android tablets). Most Android O tweaks favor developers, such as the new background limiter, notification channels, adaptive icons, and more. Google also indicated that the beta program for Android 7 Nougat is now concluded. All devices that are enrolled in the Android 7 Nougat beta program have been updated to the latest version of Android and will receive no more beta builds.
