Google confirms Android O as Android 8.0, releases Developer Preview 3 with final APIs

Google had released Android O first developer preview back in March at the Google I/O last month. It had also released the second developer preview and opened registrations for Android O-beta. Google has now released Android O developer preview 3 with the final Android O APIs (API level 26). It has also revealed that Android O will be Android 8.0.
The latest developer preview brings color-coding for rich media notifications. So these notifications have themes based on album art or video thumbnails which fade into the notification. This is available for Google Play Music, Spotify, YouTube Music, YouTube Red and Chrome.
Android O brings several new features such as notification channels, PIP, adaptive icons along with some of the new APIs — autofill, font resources in XML, auto sizing TextView, WebView enhancements and more.
Android O developer preview 3 images are now available on Android developer website here. You can also get OTA images from here. It will be available for Pixel, Pixel XL, Pixel C, Nexus 5X, Nexus 6P, and Nexus Player. Google said that there will be one more preview update coming in July that will bring near-final system images. We will know the name of Android 8.0 soon after the final preview, before stable release in Q3 2017.
