Moreover, those between the ages of 18 and 24 spend more than three hours every day in apps. While Google has been certifying Android devices for a while, today the company announced that it's making it a bit easier to make sure that you're getting a certified Android device with a new program that will put a Google Play Protect logo directly on your phone's packaging.

On the other hand, certified devices come with Google Play Protect out-of-the-box. The Runtime permission feature, which has to be enabled to allow installation of apps from unknown sources, has been replaced with a new permission system.

The Android OREO release marks a global collaboration between the OREO brand and Google, which kicked off with the debut of the Android OREO superhero - a new character who personifies the powers of this iconic duo and the features of the new operating system. Google has been providing certification for Android devices to maintain that end-users have a stable experience. Unlike there's any big update, Google doesn't disclose the changelogs of this app.

Rocket League for Nintendo Switch will have Metroid and Mario Cars
More specifically the Mario NSR, Luigi MSR and Samus' Gunship will be available as downloadable content in the future. It was already guaranteed that I'd be buying Rocket League on Switch , but I guess Nintendo wanted to make sure.


If you've ever looked at your smartphone and thought about how many of those various apps you actually use, the report's main findings are not very surprising.

Google has yet to reveal the exact rollout date of the Android Oreo on Pixels and Nexus devices, as well as the schedule for other Android phones. Basically, it is a new feature for the system. Motorola didn't seed Android Nougat to Moto G3, Moto E3, Moto E3 Power, Moto G2 (2nd Gen), Moto G3, and Moto G3, so it's only normal to guess that these mobile phones will not get the new firmware update either.

Google took this step to distinguish between the certified Android devices and the non-certified ones. Those with older, incompatible devices needn't feel left out, though, as they'll find a worthy, if not prefered, alternative in developer Amir Zaidi's rootless, Launcher3-based Pixel Launcher port, which was recently updated with Oreo-exclusive features and a slew of miscellaneous improvements.
