Gboard Go is rolling out to low RAM Android 8.1 devices

Android 8.1 Will Show the Connection Speed of Public Wi-Fi Networks

"Slow" will allow you little more than basic internet functionalities such as sending texts and WiFi calling.

Android's developer Google is rolling out a new feature on Android 8.1 Oreo that shows the speed of Wi-Fi networks before users connect to them.

Google is in the process of launching all the "Go" apps for their Android Go project, targeted at entry-level Android devices with limited processing power. The feature will still display Slow Wi-Fi networks, but tapping on them is not highly recommended. For the first time, #AndroidOreo 8.1 lets you take out the guesswork & see the speed of networks before you hit connect.

OK: You can read webpages, use social media, and stream music. As far as this is the incredible feature launched by Google. Google has broken network speed into four categories: slow, ok, fast, and very fast.

The latest Android update shows the connection speed under the names of the networks.




There is an option to disable the service in Android if you do not wish to see the speeds. The update requires a full device reset, so user data on the device will be removed.

When Android 8.1 Oreo started rolling out in early December 2017, it was certain this was going to be an incremental upgrade. Whether you're at a public park, restaurant or in your hotel room, it's always good to know what sort of internet connection you will be getting.

Speed Labels is coming via an update to those handsets now using Android 8.1. Specifically, the ratings will apply to public networks that can be evaluated.

Apart from these, Android 8.1 Oreo also includes a number of bug fixes including improved Bluetooth connectivity with Android Auto, audio improvements while recording video, touchscreen sensitivity, general stability and others.
