Here’s what’s new in Samsung’s Android 8.0 Oreo update

Eager to test out Android 8.0 Oreo on your Galaxy S8 but weren’t part of the beta program for it? Well, unfortunately we can’t get the update out to your phone any quicker, since we’re all still waiting on Samsung. What we can do, though, is show you Samsung’s infographic detailing exactly what’s new in the update for your device.

Samsung has a full infographic breaking down every new feature specific to Samsung Experience 9.0. These are separate from the newer features in Android 8.0, although those will still be included in the update.

You’ll be able to make some significant customization to the Samsung keyboard, and there are tons of new emojis, GIFs, and stickers. The app finder in the app drawer is faster and will not give relevant internet results, Bixby has a new feature to wake you up with your favorite music, there’s a new shortcut to quickly access your Samsung Cloud content, automate your connected devices, and tons, tons more.

We’ve uploaded Samsung’s full, huge infographic below. Dig through it, and let us know what feature you’re most looking forward to.
