What's new in Android 8.x (Oreo)? - Moto X4 & Moto Z2 Force

  2. Touch Special app access > Picture-in-picture.
  3. Touch an app to change its permissions.

Notification Dots: A small, blue dot over an app icon indicates you have an unread notification for that app. Touch and hold the app to preview the notification.

Snooze Notifications: Swipe right slowly, and touch the clock , then select a duration to snooze notifications.

Android 8 offers increased security measures

  • Play Store protection: Google Play Protect scans your apps to keep them secure and free of malware and viruses.
  • Installing apps from sources other than Play Store: The Unknown sources setting has been removed from Security settings. Now each time you choose to install an app from an unknown source, you are required to grant the “Install unknown apps” permission. You can easily see which apps you granted this permission and can revoke it at any time.
