The Oreo update for HTC U11 is is being rolled out via OTA. This means, the update may take some time to reach all the devices. If you are one of those impatient kinds though, you can check for the update manually by going to your phone's Settings>About Phone> System Updates. Since it is a major software update, users are recommended to make sure that their device has sufficient charge and space before initiating the installation process.

Users should also carry out the installation process using a Wi-Fi network, unless they want to exhaust their mobile data pack. If you own an HTC U11, with the arrival of Android Oreo, several new features will be added to your phone. You will be able to enjoy some Android Oreo exclusive features like Picture-in-Picture mode, Notification Dots, Android Instant Apps, Notification channel, and more.

Just to give you some insight, the picture-in-picture mode allows users to simultaneously watch YouTube videos and use other apps. While a similar feature is already available in the current version of iOS, users can only watch videos running on Safari web browser. Moreover, the YouTube app does not allow any such feature on iOS.

Another feature that makes Oreo a much better improvement over Android Nougat is the notification visuals. With this feature, users can view the notifications with much clarity and there are several options provided for each notification.

 

Always-on display along with Auto-fill are also included in Oreo update. Auto-fill lets users login into apps more quickly and easily. Besides this, users can find many other options available for any text selection made on Android Oreo.

Talking about the 'smart selection' feature, it provides users with additional options according to the text selected. For example, if you select an address, Oreo will offer you an option to look it up on Maps.
