Install for Home & Quick Panel Upgrades
Samsung's Galaxy S8 Android 8.0 Oreo update brings improvements to the device's home screen and Quick Panel.
If you're running Android Oreo, you can touch and hold an app to display common or recommended shortcuts to tasks within the app.
For example, the YouTube app's shortcuts allow you to quickly view Trending Videos, manage your subscriptions, or Search for new videos. If you're used an iPhone, the feature is similar to the device's 3D Touch function.

Not all apps support the feature, but we expect developers to roll out support updates over the course of the year.
Notification badges on app icons and the Notification panel are now synced up. So if you clear a notification in one location it'll also clear in the other location.
As for the Quick Panel, you get a few upgrades. You can now manage Notifications for each of your apps with notification categories.
You'll also notice icons at the bottom of the Notification panel for Notifications that aren't visible.
