A Nexus 5X user received Android 7.1.2 update over Android O !!

Chainfire has released a version of SuperSU that allows you to gain root access on a Nexus 5X or a Nexus 6P with Android O Developer Preview 1 installed. As a result, Android is safer than you may believe, the company says in its annual Android Security Year in Review report.

As Google announced the release of Android O, it also said that the firm is putting "a big priority on improving the device's interactive performance".

There are lots and lots (and lots!) of warnings about malicious apps and mobile malware. As for the Hangouts app users, they might be seeing an in-app notification prompting to change the default SMS app or just then direct to the Google Play Store.

"Using improved tools and the knowledge we gained in 2016, we think we can reduce the number of devices affected by PHAs [potentially harmful apps] in 2017, no matter where people get their apps", security team members Adrian Ludwig and Mel Miller wrote in a post on the Android Developers Blog. With Android O they are also bringing Picture in Picture concept to phones and tablet devices.

One of the most hated UI element as a result of multiple flavors of Android is the inconsistency in the icons. But Google found that "most devices are either rooted by the user or the manufacturer"-not by malware". However, it admitted that only half of the top 50 devices worldwide now receive updates, indicating a lot more needs to be done to keep users protected.




In comparison, Apple claimed that 79% of all iOS devices were running iOS 10 as of February 20.

Google isn't giving up, though, and they were able to work with over 200 OEMs a year ago to get security updates pushed out to more than 730 million devices.

The problem with a platform security update reaching 735 million devices is that it means roughly 50% of Android smartphones weren't updated.

Let me show you how to work with split screen mode.

Users will have to wait for the final version till late summer, however it possible to get the beta version of the update on your device.
