We got our first peek at Android O back in March, and Google finally revealed more of what’s coming. We’re still quite a ways from the official release, but here’s what you can expect from the new version of Android from Google.

Android O will be designed to understand what’s in your photos and recommend specific apps to use them with. It also applies to Videos and URLs.
Android O will ship with redesigned icons that are more minimalistic. They will also now natively support badge app icons. So you can know which apps have active notifications in them just by looking at their icons.
Background colors for notification
Developers will now have the ability to enable background colors for notifications from their app. But don’t expect your notification tray to be colorful since Google recommends they only use this feature for ongoing tasks that need extra attention like calls and navigation.
New Android TV launcher
Just like the TV app for iOS, Google will now have a dedicated app for entertainment apps like Netflix, and Hulu and Amazon Prime.
