With Android 8.0 Oreo announced as coming to the BlackBerry KEYone and Motion chances are you're interested in what, exactly that means in terms of new features and enhancements. Unfortunately, we'll have to wait a bit longer see Oreo on a BlackBerry KEYone or Motion but the folks over at Android Central have produced a pretty awesome video showing off the important bits. Here are some of the highlights in Oreo:

  • Background limits: Android Oreo helps minimize background activity in the apps you use least, it's the super power you can't even see.
  • Autofill: With your permission, Autofill remembers your logins to get you into your favorite apps at supersonic speed.
  • Picture-in-Picture: Allows you to see two apps at once, it's like having super strength and laser vision.
  • Notification Dots: Press the notification dots to quickly see what's new, and easily clear them by swiping away.
  • Android Instant Apps: Teleport directly into new apps right from your browser, no installation needed.
  • Google Play Protect: Working to keep your device and data safe from misbehaving apps by scanning over 50 billion apps per day, even the ones you haven't installed yet!
  • Emoji: Share the feels with a fully redesigned emoji set, including over 60 new emoji.
  • Project Treble: The biggest change to the foundations of Android to date: a modular architecture that makes it easier and faster for hardware makers to deliver Android updates.
  • Notification categories: More granular and consistent control over which notifications can appear and how intrusive they are.
  • Notification snoozing: Lets users hide notifications for a period of time, similar to Inbox snoozing.
