    It adds a new "picture-in-picture" mode that lets some apps run in a small corner of the screen.

    Google's own Nexus and Pixel phones are expected to be the first to receive the software update.

    Android Oreo introduces measures to help people manage the volume of notifications on their devices, which has been described as "notification diarrhoea".

    App developers will now be able to split notifications into categories, so people can block some types of alert while still receiving others.

    Previously, Android users could only allow all or block all notifications from each app.

    Other new features include:
    • "smart copy-and-paste", which highlights an entire address, telephone number or web addresses when people try to copy it
    • limiting how many system resources apps can use while they are running in the background, to reduce memory use and battery use
    • Instant Apps, which lets some services invoke parts of their Android apps, even if people have not installed them
    • a redesigned set of emojis, which look more like the ones seen on Apple's iOS

      Watching anything happen in slow motion is, generally, pretty rad. Watching a bunch of different TV's refresh in super slow motion is even better.

      The Slow Mo Guys have been doing these kinds of videos for years, and this one is no less fascinating. In it, they capture precisely how different TV's, from an old CRT to a flashy new OLED UHD 4K TV, refresh the image being displayed. At one point, they slow the whole thing down a mind-bending 380,117 frames per second.
