Android Oreo Includes New Feature to Enhance User Experience

Author at TechGenyz Tech
Android Oreo

It has been months since the developer preview of Android Oreo came up. By now we have a pretty good idea on how the upcoming upgrade of Android OS is going to turn up. But, there is still more to feel excited about it.

A significant feature of the Android 8.0 is the ‘Task Snapshots’. It is basically an infrastructure feature for the operating system. Therefore, there is no need to mess with the settings from your side.

Task Snapshots in Android Oreo

The Task Snapshot aims at bettering your overview thumbnails and represents your views while returning to an app. It is a combination of Saved Surfaces and Recent Thumbnails. Also, it does not consume much memory.

By the help of this functionality of Android Oreo, users will be able to keep better track of CPU usage regarding background apps. The Window Manager takes a snapshot of the app that is going into the background.

The snapshot directly finds its place into the graphics buffer. You can retain it anytime within when the app remains in memory. You will get to see the snapshot while having a glimpse over the app in the multitasking interface.

As the graphics buffer hosts the screenshot, you don’t have to additionally copy for display in the overview. This makes it use less memory, which readily makes the image bear higher quality.

Before the introduction of this feature, the overview thumbnail would not have a better quality of the display. It would have been compressed by 64% for saving memory. This naturally hampers the quality parameters.

Now, the transition from a thumbnail to the full app is going to be smoother than before. Also, the thumbnail matches the graphics buffer. With one tap, you will get to that point of the app – exactly what the screenshot displays in the thumbnail.

There is no requirement of enabling the Task Snapshots. The feature is available by default in Android Oreo.
