Google has finally released the most-anticipated version of Android along with its name. The event was organized by Google on the eve of Solar Eclipse which was seen in the United States as a Ful Solar Eclipse. As soon as the Solar Eclipse passed its entirety phase, Google commenced the event to announce the name for the next version of Android which is Android 8.0 as seen from the past developer previews.
Now, we also know the name of the Android 8.0 and Google announced that the naming for Android O will be Android 8.0 Oreo. The name of Android O was rumoured to be Android Oreo some time back and the announcement of Google for an event of Android O release on the Solar Eclipse day made it even more clear.
Now that the next version of Android has been released by the company, Google has started to roll out the OTA updates for the devices that were running the Developer Preview 4 of the Android O to upgrade to Android 8.0 Oreo. As far as the OTA is concerned, the size of the update is a minor one which comes at 50MB.
