On the prior version of the Android, most of the apps silently work in the background, even the user is not performing any action related to them. Android O is smart enough to restrict the unnecessary background actions of the apps.

For example, if the user is playing a song or creating a playlist in the music player, Facebook and Instagram aren't allowed to refresh their feed. This feature of the Android O will surely improve the device's battery life.

The system asked for the credential details from the app whenever the user need it. The Autofill system can be verified via fingerprint or unlock pattern whenever the user wants to access their account.

Now you don't need to stop or quit the video in order to reply an email or to read a WhatsApp message. With this Android version, you can answer the mail or message while the video is playing. However, the feature is not new in the tech world, but it will definitely bring something new for Android users.
