9to5Google has a couple images showing the difference. There's no toggle to switch between the dark and light mode; Oreo just detects the predominant color pattern in your background, and switches to match.

8 monthes ago   |   By Phone Arena

Sony Mobile is one of the important smartphone companies that have yet to announce any details about its Android 8.0 Oreo plans. Well, perhaps the reason was the fact that the Japanese handset wasn't ready to commit to any Oreo updates.
The good news is the situation has slightly changed, as Sony Mobile Japan recently confirmed that the Xperia XZ Premium smartphone will receive the highly-anticipated Android 8.0 Oreo update starting December.

Google Play Music gets a huge redesign on Android TV

8 monthes ago   |   By Android Central

The new design is part of the v8.1 update, and it looks pretty incredible.
Android TV tends to get placed on the backburner for not only third-party app developers but Google's own applications as well. The YouTube Android TV app finally got an update earlier this summer after radio silence for over a year, and following that, Google Play Music is now receiving a complete overhaul with a brand-new UI.
Android Police initially spotted the changes, and although the core functionality of Google Play Music on Android TV remains mostly unchanged, the updated interface looks much more modern and...
