Google Assistant now available for OnePlus 3 and 3T smartphones

Google Assistant made its debut on the Pixel and Pixel XL past year, and after a period of exclusivity the search giant started to bring the voice assistant to other Android smartphones. While this is the pre-alpha version of Android O, it still gives a sneak peak of the additions that will be coming out when it releases later this year, although not in the fully fledged form. It also ensures that users who don't often plug their Android device into their computer and mess around with a third-party file manager can enjoy a long overdue feature of modern phones. A new option has also been made available to configure this new feature under the "Moves" tab in the Settings app, according to Android Police.

This way you can see at a super-quick glance if anything urgently demands your attention, while ridding yourself of the spam and rubbish.

Notification Handling: As for notification handling, the new software has come with some advancement. Moreover, it also takes up a little more space on-screen.

This is a feature already found on some other Android phones, including some of LG's recent flagships.

Originally spotted in Android Nougat, the picture-in-picture mode was kept hidden for unknown reasons, but it will finally be turned on in Android O as it appears.

Google collaborated with audio titans like Sony for Android O, to ensure that anyone using quality Bluetooth headphones enjoy the best possible fidelity. Android's update problem isn't new; people have known about it nearly since the platform started to become popular.

Unlike the developer previews for Nougat, this time Google is making the early versions of Android O available to developers via download and flash only, Burke said.
