4 Reasons Not to Install Galaxy Note 8 Oreo & 10 Reasons You Should



Install for Home & Quick Panel Upgrades

Install for Home & Quick Panel Upgrades

The Note 8 Android 8.0 Oreo update brings improvements to the device's Home Screen and Quick Panel.

Once you download Android Oreo you'll be able to touch and hold an app to display common or recommended shortcuts to tasks within the application.

For instance the YouTube app's shortcuts allow you to quickly view Trending Videos, manage your subscriptions, or Search for new videos. If you've used an iPhone, this feature is similar to Apple'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 so keep an eye out. 

Notification badges on app icons and the Notification panel are now synced up. So if you're running Oreo and you clear a notification in one location, it'll also clear in the other location.

As for the device's 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.
