Install If You Like Customizing Your Galaxy S8
If you love customizing the look and feel of your phone you're going to love Samsung's new Experience 9.0 user interface.
Samsung's version of Android 8.0 Oreo delivers a brand new UI to the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+ (and soon, the Galaxy S8 Active) and it comes with a variety of customization options including colored folders, new Edge features, and new clock faces.
Oreo's custom colored folders allow you to take control of how your folders look on the screen and help you stay organized.
Android Oreo's lock screen clock now changes color to match the wallpaper you’re using. Oreo also includes new clock styles for your Galaxy S8's Always-On Display and new Edge lighting effects including a multi-color effect, a glow effect that makes the edges glow, and a glitter effect. You can also move Edge Tools by pressing and holding it, then dragging it around the screen.
These changes are small, but they should delight those of you who get tired of staring at the same old screen day in and day out.
If you're a Bixby user you should consider installing the Android 8.0 Oreo update on your device.
The Samsung Galaxy S8's Android 8.0 Oreo update brings a new upgrade called Briefings to the personal assistant.
When your alarm rings, Bixby will update you with the weather of the day complete with background music and colors that match the weather.
To enable this, simply open up the Clock app, tap on Add, and toggle Bixby briefing on.
It's a small change, but it's a nice one for those of you who enjoy getting a read on the weather outside right when you get out of bed.
If you love changing the look and feel of your phone, think about installing Android Oreo.
