Android Oreo (8.0), the latest Android update, which had arrived in Google Pixel and a few other devices, seems to be not so sweet to some of the new users.
As with any update, bugs are to be expected, but the issue reported by these users is rather alarming in nature.
According to a Reddit thread, few Redditors are facing problems with their Android 8.0 alarm clock app, which, according to them, is not going off.
The Redditors have complained that the update seems to have crippled their alarm app. One such Redditor said that if the alarm clock is set to half an hour ahead, the alarm goes off. However, if it is scheduled more than half an hour later, it does not go off. Instead it notifies that the alarm was missed.
Thus, a few of them have been complaining of reaching late for work. Though we do wonder at the boss who would accept such an excuse.
Android Oreo 8.0, was released on 21 August alongside the solar eclipse. It has been rolling out in Google's Pixel and Nexus smartphones. As per previous reports, the Pixel and Pixel XL, Pixel C, Nexus series like, Nexus 6P, Nexus 5X, and Nexus Player, have received the update.
New features of Android Oreo include icon shapes, dots for notifications, more security options, an autofill fill service, smart text selection and a picture-in-picture mode
In the new Android update, there is support for Wi-Fi Aware, an energy-efficient way by which supported hardware can discover and chat with each other without a Wi-Fi hotspot or an internet connection. There is also a support for the new Bluetooth Low-Energy (BLE) 5.0 standard.
Meanwhile, other the Google Pixel, OnePlus may introduce the update soon. Recently, it teased the Android Oreo 8.0 update for its flagship, the OnePlus 5. The company posted a picture of OnePlus 5 on its official Twitter handle hinting at the eventual arrival of the update.
