Android 8.1 Oreo is currently being tested as a developer version. The software brings a new dimension that will allow us to even better manage the smartphone battery. What changed?

Android 8.1 Oreo has officially been tested, and I think it's only a matter of days before the software is released as an update – we will of course wait for a year, but now it's good to know what changes Google has made. The most important of them is how to manage the device's battery. More specifically, it's a slightly modified setting that will eventually tell us which program consumes the most resources and quickly drains the battery.

As you can see in the screenshots, the apps that will most likely eat the battery will immediately be tagged by Google with the option of limiting their performance in the background or simply temporarily or completely shutting down. The case breaks up with the popular "wakelock" , which in previous versions of Android may at times be simply a nightmare for users. I remember that Sony updated the Android KitKat, that my Xperia by strange wakelocki unloaded during the night … This is the first time Google is implementing a solution to monitor the background of the application. Other manufacturers' overlay (at least this Samsung) already have this solution. Keep in mind that the "clean" Android is slightly outdated in terms of capabilities , compared to individual overlays. https://www.gsmmaniak.pl/733470/cley-android-vs-nakladki/ I can not wait to update. This feature is not very much needed, but Android Oreo also introduces top limits for background applications, which will translate into longer battery life. We'll see, we'll see.
