The Android Oreo update will bring a host of changes to the phone but weighs heavily at around 1.5GB. Some of the biggest changes in the update include Parallel Apps which gives you the ability to use multiple accounts on the same app. Another major update is the new Picture in Picture mode which minimizes an app window so that you can use another app at the same time. YouTube is a great example of the feature as it creates a floating window so that you can use YouTube while using other apps.
Auto-fill is another feature which is now inbuilt in the settings that can make use of your favourite password managers like LastPass. Other new features include the latest September security patch, redesigned quick settings and smart text selection. Other than that OnePlus also brings some subtle updates to its Android launcher. These include a redesigned app folder and notification dots which shows dots on an app whenever there is a new notification.
