Android 8.1 brings in some useful and exciting new features for users

24 January 2018

Slow:If you can use Wi-Fi calling on your device, you can make phone calls and send texts.

When the wireless internet rating system claims the connection speed to be okay, you can use it to browse the page, scroll through social media pages and also stream music online without any issues. If scanning a network indicates it is very fast, don't rely on it staying that way.

However, if you want to stream "very high-quality videos", you can go through "Very Fast" labeled Wi-Fi spots. In an announcement by Android on Twitter, the Android Oreo 8.1 update will now give you a glimpse into what sort of speed you should expect before even connecting to a Wi-Fi hotspot.

The update is expected to run faster of specific public Wi-Fi networks.

Google Starts Rolling Out WiFi Speed Labels Feature to Android 8.1

Google has started rolling out WiFi Speed labels for devices running Android 8.1 Oreo. I'm personally not seeing them, but that's because there just aren't any open networks around me. However, it's missing features such as GIF search, stickers, and one-handed mode. Further, "OK" would mean 1 Mbps to 5 Mbps speed, while "Fast" label will be shown when speed of a public network will be between 5 Mbps to 20 Mbps. The Android 8.1 Oreo Beta update for the Nokia 8 comes with V4.82A build number and weighs 1553.9MB in size.

Like most Android updates, Android 8.1 is only available on Google's Pixel and Nexus devices for the time being.

The speed will appear under public networks only, meaning you won't see it for networks that require passwords. This is exactly what Android 8.1 Oreo is. The new BETA update includes some Battery saving Navigation Buttons, Revamped power Menu, a whole lot of new emojis a really ravishing New UI and Settings Menu, now you can see the Bluetooth Battery Percentage too.

The Android 8.1 Oreo update will also bring with a host of bug fixes and enhancements on performance of Google's mobile operating system.
