    Post your rumored features and updates for Android O right here. It's all a bit fuzzy at the moment but as we get closer we should have a better picture of what we're looking at. New notification system and badges for app icons are a couple of the features I've heard about so far.

    Share your rumors!

    There are a couple features that I've heard about. The first one is "Copy Less" and here is how it could potentially work:

    If you and a friend are having a conversation in a chat about where to eat dinner and you find a good restaurant in the Yelp app, when you go back to your conversation and type “it’s at,” one automatically generated suggestion in Gboard would be the restaurant’s address.”

    The second feature which I'm very interested to try out is called "Improved gestures". So maybe we can draw the letter 'A' and open up AndroidCentral?

    Today you can quickly call up your contacts using Ok Google, but in Android O you will be able to draw onscreen the letter C to open your contacts menu

    The third one I've heard about is 'Picture In Picture". So you could grab and move a small video screen around your screen and watch it while tying a text or thing like that


    I think Nougat is feature packed already and 'Oreo' (working title) is more of a refinement over Nougat.

    What do you guys think?

    Would you use the above 3 features?
