After months of anticipation and speculations, the Android O OS update is all set to launch later today. Google plans to have a live stream from NY, which will start at 2.40 pm Eastern Standard Time (EST), which is around 12.10 AM for India. Considering the big debate over the name of the next Android OS, it could most likely be Oreo, now that Blass has also tweeted two images with this name. Monday's event may be timed alongside the solar eclipse, but don't expect any earth-shattering updates to Android. From today, the all-new Android O is Android 8.0 Oreo. Google would live stream Android O Launch on this page itself. The release of Android O (8.0) also coincides with the total solar eclipse happening the 21 of August also.

The launch event is taking place at NY and the Android O will be revealed on 2:40 PM ET. Android O now has notification channels that let users categorize notifications from different apps into "channels", as well as block notifications they don't want to see. The Android O Live Stream countdown watch now reads 10 hours and 40 minutes to go. So, first you need to check if your phone is compatible to get the latest software version. The update is expected to arrive with a number of new and exciting features.
