During the annual developer conference held by Google, the eighth version of the Android operating system (OS) was announced.

New version of Android is coming as Google has rolled out the developer preview of its next Android named Android O. Google chose to change the name, and add new functionality in the process, likely because it is more appropriate, considering what it is mainly used for - which is to locate Android devices and remotely wipe or ring them.

If a device has less than 1 GB of RAM, it will automatically use the Android Go version of Android.

Notification Dots are iOS-esque features, which put a dot next to the app icons, showcasing that there are unread notifications in the app.

You will be able to use the Google Assistant to send money to friends and more, you can see more details about this below. Find My Device offers an fresh user interface for Android Device Manager and adds new features, including the ability to remotely lock a lost device. If it doesn't appear immediately, you should wait a few minutes and then relaunch the Google app.

The Assistant's increased potential will soon allow users to have conversations about what they are seeing.

Google also announced that it has now reached two billion users on Android and that it would be making its Google Assistant available on iPhone for the first time, challenging Apple's Siri in her own backyard, so to speak.

Integration with Google Photos means even more information is available after the event, for example it can match your image to online data to work out what is that landmark you photographed earlier.

One of the major topics, Google touched upon during its keynote was the Google Assistant, saying it's taking steps to make the AI-driven helper more conversational.

Curiously enough, the Netflix application continued to work on rooted devices, but these phones were no longer able to download the app or receive future updates. There's also an "Explore" button for you to get tips for using Google's AI.

Under the hood, Android O aims to make your phone startup quicker and your apps faster, with added optimizations for developers to help prevent your battery from draining.
