App Drawer Improvements
Now you can swipe up to open up the app drawer from anywhere on the screen, you are no longer required to initiate the swipe from the dock at the bottom of the screen.

New Notification Shade & Quick Toggles



The dark notification shade and quick toggles are now gone, Android Oreo introduces a Light UI for notification shade and quick toggles


Notification Dots
If an app has anything new to show you, a long tap on the app icon on the home screen will bring up a menu, with last recent notification, important shortcuts along with app’s widgets and ‘app info’ on top. Enable it from settings - apps & notifications - notifications - allow notifications dots and then, enable for each apps’ notification settings in app info.

Using Notification Channels feature apps can now create different categories for notifications. Do note that apps need to enable this first. A long tap on the actual notification on notification drawer will bring up a special menu, by using which you'll be able to control the priority and visibility of each type of notification posted by that app.

Picture-in-Picture Mode



 Oreo introduces Picture-in-Picture mode. Where once apps enable this, they can display the content over a floating window while performing other tasks, a useful addition to watching videos or for video calls. Currently, VLC and YouTube have this feature live.

Snooze Individual Notifications
 Oreo has a special feature to deal with it, Swipe right (not too much though) on the notification and then tap the icon (clock one) to snooze it. By default it will be snoozed for 1 hour, click on 'time' to change it.

Night Light
Android Oreo introduces 'Night Light' mode which you can now activate it automatically based on customizable time and also change the intensity of it.

Adaptive Music App Notifications
notification on the lock screen. For all the media controls on notification, rather than selecting a single color for the notification based on app color, media playback notifications can now instead draw colors using the album artwork. Android then uses those colors to make a notification that blends across the artwork.

Smart Text Selection
The text selection menu now comes with intelligence inbuilt, based on the content of the selected text it now offers to open the chrome, dial a phone number or find directions using maps

Redefined Settings Structure

The good old settings categorization has been changed, a lot. While some of it you may find getting a higher ticket up in a row, while some you may have to dig a bit deep, until then you get used to at least.

New Emojis

Android’s emoji represented by minimalist blob since the KitKat era is now gone. Android O now comes with cute circular emoji set with a gradient which makes more sense and is somewhat distinctive, while surely more recognizable with a wider range of colors.

Instant Apps
Instant apps, chopped up pieces which can run instantly without needing an actual installation, has been there for quite a time now, but it will now be enabled by default

Google Play Protect
Google Play Protect in Oreo scans the apps automatically and rest of the files as an improved security measure.

Battery Menu

Oreo introduces a whole new Battery Menu with frequently used battery-related options like battery saver and adaptive brightness on top.  The battery usage graph is a bit easier to read with a menu at the bottom of the main menu, telling you specifically how much of your battery was used by which.

All New 'Files' App

While it might not be feature-rich, File manager did get a makeover in Android Oreo, letting you do everything without needing an external app installation at least for the important stuff.
