Google’s Android and Apple’s iOS are the leading mobile platforms. Several instances report the clash between both of the leading platforms. With the recent official declaration of iOS 11 launch, the legacy of clash continues. Google had introduced Android O a few weeks earlier, and Apple launched iOS 11 recently.
The current buzz streaming in the market is which Operating System would be the winner. Both of the newly declared operating systems have unique specifications. Certain features of both of the operating systems have been declared and comparing the features of both, the users are still confused to decide which one is better- Android O or iOS 11.
Features Of Android O
Android O integrates several incredible features which are very useful in comparison to the previous versions of Google’s Android.
1. Picture-In-Picture Feature
Picture-in-picture is a feature that is available in YouTube app and this feature is also available on iOS. This feature works same as it works in iOS. This feature allows the users to minimize the video and watch the video while they can perform other tasks. While using other apps, the users can easily watch the videos with this awesome feature. The video can also easily slide around the screen for perfect placement.
2. Notification Dots
The custom Android launchers have easy access to the notification badges which is not officially offered by Google. In Android O, a small dot appears on the app icon when the user receives a notification. This feature on Android O is different than iOS as Android offers the users to tap on the app to open it and to access the notification. The users can even long-press the icon and get a short list of the actions they can perform with this facility, the users are able to access the pop-up notification without opening the app.
3. Smart Text Selection
The basic text selection tools are unchanged and are being used since a long time. Android has introduced a new format of smart text selection that uses Google’s AI that intelligently analyzes the selected theme and provides the contextual shortcuts.
4. Auto Fill
Auto-fill is another excellent feature that is available with Android O. This feature amazingly makes the Android users go lively! With this feature, the users can quickly log in. Android O easily remembers usernames and passwords that can help the users to login to the apps easily.
Vitals is another incredible feature. But this feature is referred as a suite of tools which helps to improve the security as well as the performance of the Android device. This includes the Google play protect feature and it acts similarly as the virus scanner that scans the app for preventing any malicious attack. This feature also prevents the apps from running in the background for a longer time.
6. Clean UI
Android O is considered as a clean version of Android in terms of UI. The aspects that make Android O different are the Notification Shade and the Settings of the App. Though the difference is not extensive, there are smaller changes which make it more appreciable.
