Android O officially arrives on August 21

Google first revealed the existence of Android O earlier this year with the beginning of the developer preview.

After a lot of speculation surrounding the official name for the next Android OS, it seems that Google itself may have just spilled the (jelly) beans on the name of Android O, and it's not Oatmeal Cookie, it's Oreo.

Still, Google hasn't confirmed that the "O" in Android O stands for "Oreo", so this name slip must still be considered a rumor for now.

A new feature being added by Google may soon make searching and finding videos much easier. Users will have the option to enable previews on mobile networks by visiting the settings menu inside the Google app or settings for Android Chrome. However, we will know for sure on August 21. Using this mode will allow users to browse their smartphone even when the YouTube app window is open.

It's been almost one hundred years since we've seen a solar eclipse at the same scale as the one that sweeps across the USA on Monday. Either when Android O releases or what on earth Google will have calling the OS when the timer concludes on 2:40 pm EST on the 21. Users can also long press on the apps for shortcuts. These leaks directly suggest that the Google has settled on the choice of Oreo for the Android O.

Iraqi forces launch offensive on ISIS-held city Tal Afar
Tal Afar is a town located in around 43 miles west of Mosul which was the center of all activities of ISIS, according to reports . But he said Iraqi government forces would be "ready enough" when they began their campaign against Tal Afar.

Google has also listed websites which have launched their own instant apps. This will be an event live streamed from New York City. Your Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 Android Nougat update should bring the latest security patches to your device.

We've reached out to both companies for more details and will update when we hear back.

Once I get a handle on the final build and documentation, you can expect the usual book-length Android review. At the event, the company also gave a sneak peek into some of the features coming in Android O, the new Android version arriving later this year.

On my test device, the system update for Android 8.0 - Oreo showed up immediately ready to download, and was relatively quick to install.
