But friend, by doing some tweaks, installing some applications and toggling up some settings, you can easily get the features of Latest version of Android. Only you have to do some adjustments and settings and you can take an advantage of latest version of Android. So, for providing you the full procedure, here I am presenting the ” how to get Android O Features on Any Android Device ”
How to get Android O Features on Any Android Device
So friend, without wasting any further time, let’s get started with the process of ” How to get Android O Features on Any Android Device”.
NOTE:- Before starting the process I recommend you to apply this process if your device has android 5.0 or above version.
1) Android O Wallpapers App
As you know, the latest version of Android, Android Oreo comes with their own set of wallpaper and you can easily see that in Google pixel launcher, which was made by Google. Yes, you only have to download and install Google pixel launcher which is directly available on play store and after installing it, you can easily find the set of wallpapers which are exclusive for Android 8.0 oreo. Just set any one of them, and you will get latest wallpapers. The main thing is that you can Daily see a new wallpaper which will be automatically set by launcher so that you don’t get bored of your wallpaper.
2) Android O Launcher
In terms of setting up the launcher for app drawer, animations as well as icons, here the pixel launcher fails to perform due to its very limited features. so you have to download a new launcher for that.
Basically, if you visit play store and search for “android 8.0 Launcher”, then you can find that there are tons of launchers available for that like Action Launcher, Apex Launcher, etc. But I will prefer Nova launcher among all of them because:-
- It is very compact in size and provide more features
- Nova launcher is a very trusted launcher which is on the top of the list from years
- You can get timely updates and best support from it.
You can easily set it up as you like, and to set it up as Pixel Style, you just have to follow the steps written, when you first open the Nova Launcher. You just have to set it up for the first time only.
3) Android O Icons
After setting up wallpaper and launcher for Android oreo, it’s time for setting up the Android 8.0 icon pack. So for that, I will prefer to download the app provided through the link below:-
This icon pack provides you the same icons you can see on android 8.0, the round ones. And if you don’t want to download any new app for icons, then I will prefer you to apply an icon pack available in the Nova launcher itself.
4. Notification Dots
After installing and applying an icon pack, I think you will be missing the notification dots which show below or above an app offering that there is a notification for that app. So, The next big thing introduced with the Launch of Android O was Notification Dots. Though it’s nothing too great or must have a thing, it’s a new feature so why not get that. As the new update in Nova launcher, you can set up the Notification Dots in Nova Settings. If you are unable to find the settings see the setting below:-
- First, go to Nova Settings
- then tap on Notification badges
- Then tap on Dots, it’s done.
Now you can get the icon and notification dots as same as Android 8.0.
5) Picture In Picture Mode
Basically, Picture in Picture mode provides you the feature of playing any youtube video in the background and provide you the small panel of video which you can move anywhere on the screen. This leads you to enjoy the video as well as do any other work on your smartphone at the same time.
This feature was introduced in Android 8.0, but you can easily get the same feature on your device. You have to simply download an app named ” OG Youtube“. This app provides you to minimise the youtube video to a small panel so that you can do another work also while enjoying the video. OG Youtube also provides you the feature of Download the video in different formats and quality.
