Android O Final API Rolls Out, Confirms Android O Is Android 8.0

by Samuel OnyikeJune 9, 2017
In March 2017 Google released the first Android O Developer Preview (AODP). Then last month during the Google IO developer conference, AODP2 spilled out which was the first preview build to also be available through the Android Beta program. Today AODP3 has been released.

This comes with the final Android O APIs (application program interface), so third party app developers can pretty much start working on finalizing their apps for the next iteration of Android. Hundreds of bug fixes and optimizations are included in the latest AODP too. Like previous releases, it can be installed only on the following devices:
Google Pixel, Pixel XL, Pixel C,
LG Nexus 5X, 
Huawei Nexus 6P, and 
Asus Nexus Player.

If you have a device enrolled in the Android Beta program you’ll get an update to the new build soon. Otherwise, if you have a supported device you can jump straight to AODP3 by enrolling it at the android beta site. You can also go ahead to flash a factory image with the new software, or do a sideload of an OTA zip if you can’t wait for the update notification.

A final developer preview will be coming in July, ahead of the rumored August release of the finalized Android O build for the devices mentioned. With AODP3, Google has confirmed that Android O is Android 8.0.0, and not 7.2 or 7.5.A proof is in the image you can see above, displaying the About section of Settings on a handset with AODP3 installed.

Also HMD has confirmed that it’s Nokia 6,5,3 will get the android 8.0 update.
