Android Oreo prevents automatic installs or updates of unverified apps

Android Oreo prevents automatic installs or updates of unverified apps”

There are basically two kinds of Android devices out there in the world - ones that are certified by Google and come preinstalled with Google apps (including the Play Store), and ones that aren't. Unlike there's any big update, Google doesn't disclose the changelogs of this app.

Millennials are also the most willing group to actually try out new apps. Meanwhile, 66 percent of users do not download any paid-apps in a given month, comScore found, suggesting more difficulty for developers who want to rely less on ad support.

Unlike previous versions of Android, Oreo offers boosted protection against accidental downloads and installation of apps from untrusted sources. If you own a Nexus Player or one of the latest Android TV, then this might interest you.

This feature can be accessed in Settings- Apps & notification- Advanced- Special app access- Install unknown apps. Building on Google's tradition of creating giant lawn statues for every Android release, which are housed at its headquarters in Mountain View, California, this new version of the Android OREO statue adds a layer of playful interactivity the OREO brand is known for, together with Android's rich history with robotics.

The new permission system will not just show an enable/disable toggle but will also show the apps which are being used to run third-party app stores.

According to an article in BGR today, this means that "e$3 very new phone that will launch with Oreo is 'treblized, ' which means those devices will be easier to upgrade to future Android releases". What happens if your device is not certified by Google?

Reports have also claimed that some popular Motorola smartphones are not going to get the Android Oreo update at all, however, it's not confirmed. Moreover, those between the ages of 18 and 24 spend more than three hours every day in apps.

Below, you'll find a link to the its APK and, for those unfamiliar with the process of sideloading apps on Android, a simple guide on how to install the launcher on your device.
