While Google has been certifying Android devices for a while, today the company announced that it's making it a bit easier to make sure that you're getting a certified Android device with a new program that will put a Google Play Protect logo directly on your phone's packaging.

The updated app precautions build on Google Play Protect, another security offering that rolled out in May. Those with devices from other OEMs will, as usual, be left wondering when they'll be able to get a taste of the cookie-flavored update, if ever.

All devices certified by Google are secure and ready to run apps from Google as well as the Play Store. Other new Android devices that support the OS are expected to begin arriving at the end of this year. The Pixel Launcher version 2.1 is not officially available on Google Play, but you can download the APK file from GitHub.

For this they have tweaked the security settings in Android Oreo.

Both iOS 11 and Android Oreo come with various notification channels that can be used to customize notifications' background control all types of notifications. "For example, a gaming app might not contain malicious code but instead might notify the user to install a PHA that masquerades as an important security update".

The tech giant added several new features for the latest Android software, including the limits for the location and execution of the apps that are running in the device's background to save memory and battery life. Motorola didn't seed Android Nougat to Moto G3, Moto E3, Moto E3 Power, Moto G2 (2nd Gen), Moto G3, and Moto G3, so it's only normal to guess that these mobile phones will not get the new firmware update either. One of the nifty features of the stock Android package is Google's own launcher that's now known as Pixel Launcher, after it was rebranded from Nexus Launcher previous year. With Android O, you will be warned if an app is trying to install an update, to help you identify PHAs and remove it from the device.
