On August 21st, a solar eclipse will sweep across the entire United States for the first time since 1918. Android is helping you experience this historic natural phenomenon so you can learn more about the eclipse and count down to the big day - when you’ll meet the next release of Android and all of its super (sweet) new powers, revealed via livestream from New York City at 2:40PM ET.

If a new operating system version is released, but nobody's able to use it, has it really been released?

Android O should change the game

WIth Project Treble in Android O, the whole Android upgrade problem will hopefully go away in about 2 years. I, for one, am happy about this development. As an Android dev, I really want to drop 4.4 at work, but can't yet. If Project Treble solves this in 2 years, then I say O is worth celebrating, even if it takes a while for manufacturers to release updates to the masses.
