Google launches a dedicated site promoting certified Android devices

In fact, 20 percent of this user base downloads at least one paid app per month, and almost 50 percent make five or more in-app purchases every year.

In addition, the site also consists details about the verification process for Google apps, list of the partners and one important message, "when you shop for a new Android phone or tablet, we recommend asking for a certified device or looking for the Google Play Protect logo on the box, to make sure it brings the benefits of certification and additional layers of security provided by Play Protect".

The updated app precautions build on Google Play Protect, another security offering that rolled out in May.

On the other hand, certified devices come with Google Play Protect out-of-the-box. So if you are using the Chrome browser or Amazon app store to download an app, the new permission system will provide the option to "always allow apps" or "ask every time" before an app downloaded from Chrome or Amazon app store can be installed. Google Play Store app itself wasn't that great 3-4 years back.

They were also found guilty of embezzlement as some funds that went to Choi's funds and daughter came from the corporate coffers. The five-year sentence is one of the longest prison terms given to a business leader in South Korean history.

For the impatient lot, one way to get Android Oreo is to buy a Pixel smartphone and another is to root the phone (void its warranty) and install a custom ROM based on Android Oreo. These tests also verify that the Google apps pre-installed on devices are authentic, and that apps from the Play Store can work as intended.

The app has got a new makeover and also got so many new and small features which are really useful.

Another notable feature of the new Android Oreo is called the Picture-in-Picture (PiP) mode, which can be used when users are planning to simultaneously watch a video while doing other tasks. Basically, it is a new feature for the system.

With the Oreo update, Android TV believes in channels. Once that's done, you have the updated Launcher3 on your phone, complete with Android Oreo customizations. This isn't a problem in Western markets, but in developing countries like India, it's harder to determine if a device by a particular company is certified by Google or if it's running a forked version of Android.
