Google Accidentally Revealed Android O’s Name – It’s Android 8.0 Oreo


After a lot of speculation regarding the name of Android O, Google itself has accidentally revealed the name for Android 8.0. So, the questions such as “What is the name of Android 8.0?” or “What does O stand for in Android 8.0?” are put to rest by none other than the mighty Google. Google released a teaser on Google+ to promote the August 21 event where Android O and its name will be released. And the filename of the video was GoogleOreo_Teaser_0817_noDroids (1).mp4. The filename confirms that the O in Android 8.0 stands for “Oreo” and not Oatmeal. In our articles, we always referred Android 8.0 as Oreo, and some of our beloved readers even criticized us for referring Android 8.0 as Oreo. But somewhere, deep in our heart, we were sure that Google will opt for Oreo.

Android 8.0 Oreo

Anyhow, after realizing the mistake Google changed the filename to ‘OctopusTeaser.mp4′. But it was too late and we aren’t buying Octopus now, so it’s going to be Android 8.0 Oreo.

Android 8.0 promises many new interesting and very useful features like Notification Dots, Autofill to fill forms automatically within the app, Smart Selection which is a machine learning based features that select only important text to be copied. Moreover, we will see the PIP (Picture-In-Picture) feature in Android 8.0 Oreo.

Apart from the above-mentioned features, there is a lot going at the backend of Android 8.0 Oreo. Oreo update brings better battery management algorithms, app optimizations, audio enhancements like improved Bluetooth audio and more.

The reveal event is scheduled for 21 August in New York.


  1. Oreo is a trademark franchise, you are stupid to think it is Oreo for sure even after your made up story. It is Octopus just like easter egg says in Android O developer preview.

    • @andersbonielsen:disqus lmfao. Octopus makes any sort of sense to you? Are you gone nuts?
      Octopus ain’t sweet or is it?

      Android has always been named after sweets or desserts. Keeping that in view, it will be Oreo for sure.

      About that franchise trademark thing, do you have a brain up there? – Android KitKat – KitKat is a trademark of Nestle. How about that? IDIOT.
