LG had previously tested Android Oreo on its latest flagship smartphone as part of the "LG OS Preview" program and had delivered this build to about 500 customers. Now that the testing period is over, the firm is now delivering Oreo to general users in the country.
In a press release on its blog, the firm says that it had taken the feedback into account, and had worked on optimizing apps so that they would work on the new operating system. It isn't entirely clear what LG means by this, as Android apps should work on Android Oreo without modification. It's likely the firm refers to its built-in apps here, but once more, it isn't entirely clear. LG will allow users to update both OTA or with the help of a computer. Users can use the LG Bridge desktop app to download the updated software from LG's servers (much like iTunes does for iPhones) and install it on their smartphone.
Google's Android Oreo adds picture-in-picture support to Android and further improves support for notifications on the platform with the addition of notification dots. Gooogle is also adding Instant Apps support for users, so they could use apps instantly without downloading them. LG is also highlighting improvements to its DAC in this release.
LG has not at the time of this filing revealed when it would be bringing Android Oreo to V30s in other countries. The firm plans to showcase this device one once more at CES, and has just started rolling it out in Europe and the MEA region. It is expected that Oreo will be released to devices in those regions by the end of the first half of 2018.
