Now, it is official that the Android 8.1 has just escaped from the Beta version, and the manufacturers are expected to work on the newer version if they do care.

The giant has released two beta editions of its Android 8.1 update with Android 8.1 Developer Preview 1 and Android 8.1 Developer Preview 2 for Pixel and Nexus devices.

We can confirm that the update has been received on one of our Pixel devices, so others should be seeing it pop up soon enough on their own phones. That said, the Android 8.1 Oreo update is going to be the last Android version update for Nexus 6P. In this case, you can make the backup of your Note 8 via Samsung Smart Switch or maybe any other app that you have been using for taking backups.

Under-the-hood, Android 8.1 enables the Pixel Visual Core for third-party apps, while there is support for the new Neural networks API for hardware accelerating on-device machine learning.

Being a monthly security patch, the update isn't so big, weighing about 150MB. Fast means you can do pretty much anything including streaming most videos, while Very Fast means you are good to go and can do all you need including streaming very high-quality videos.

After updating from Android 8.0, heading to Settings Network & Internet Mobile network displays a new option for Advanced Calling. After this, by following some basic instructions, you can update your device with Android 8.1 Operating System.

Back in September, Googler Elliott Hughes had posted on Google+ that the Check for update button had started working with updates getting shown on the smartphone once the button got clicked. You can manually keep on checking for the update as well.
