Still, if you want to try it out for yourself and you have the supported hardware, you can download the latest version from the Android Things Console. Software delays aren't a surprise since their makers have to fix and stablize them before they are released to the public.
The blog post goes into detail regarding some improvements to the Android Things console, which makes it easier for developers to issue Over-the-Air (OTA) updates; and some improvements to the Android Studio library, which gives developers access to several samples that could speed up the development process. Google will still likely launch Android O very soon, but for now we're not sure exactly when. This would perfectly fit Google's dessert-centric naming scheme, but this means that the company would need permission from Mondelez International, the owner of the Oreo brand.
There's really no way of telling for how long Android O for Pixel phones is going to be delayed.
No reason was given as to why Google is planning a "spectacle" for the reveal of Android O's name. Ruddock is of the view that the official name of Android 8.0 will be declared on august 21, the day of the solar eclipse. For non-Google devices though, Android O is expected to be released in September with Nokia phones on the front line.
Google gears up for Android O release.
The LG V20 from past year was the first non-Google phone to arrive with Android Nougat preinstalled.
First introduced at I/O in 2015, Android Things has since then become Google's main attempt at grabbing a significant chunk of the growing Internet-of-Things (IoT) market.
