The event will coincide with next week's total eclipse on August 21st, with Google hosting a livestream that'll begin at 2:40 pm ET. Google Cardboard is an entry-level take on mobile VR, and it lets you strap your existing phone into a cheap, portable viewer and then pop it on your face.

We already know that Android O is packed with new features: notification dots on app icons, Chrome autofill across apps, smart text selection and potentially better battery life through background process and memory management, for instance. Still, numerous most interesting options are available on the App Store, and almost everything is free.

Cardboard first launched in 2014 exclusively for Android, and as user and developer support grew, so too did Google's own focus on the platform. Today, Google is helping you do just that with the release of video previews in search results on Android. The support for Android 5.0 Lollipop devices will be added soon. Instant Apps are based on the server-side operation and eradicate the need to install them on the device.

CMR pointed out that awareness among users also has a critical role to play. The developing team of Android O says that many smartphones that get Android O will come with the Project Treble enabled in them. Unlike current updates, OEMs won't need to update drivers for the hardware in each OTA. And, Google may have also tipped its hand as to the nickname of the release, unless it is just trolling us all again.
