What’s New With Android 8.0 Oreo Part 9: Settings menu gets a few changes

We have seen a lot of new features on the Android 8.0 Oreo beta for the Galaxy S8, and our What’s New With Android 8.0 Oreo articles give you the rundown on what’s changed. We have discovered that the settings menu has also received a few minor modifications, which may or may not impress you but are still notable.

What’s New With Android 8.0 Oreo: Settings menu gets a few changes

The settings menu has had a search option on Samsung’s software for quite some time, and on Oreo, you now have the option to clear your search history from the settings. We’re not sure why one would clear it as the history can be useful for quick access to settings you need to change regularly, but the option’s now there for those who want it. The other change in the settings is in the About phone menu. On Oreo, the phone number, device model number, serial number, and IMEI are displayed right at the top in the About phone section, with things like the status and battery information sections available as the usual list just below.

Again, none of these changes are huge, but it’s possible Samsung has only just begun modifying the settings menu and will implement more changes with subsequent versions of the Android 8.0 Oreo beta. As always, we will let you know if we discover something new on Oreo, and you can do the same for us if you’re using the beta by leaving a comment.

I have not seen any mention on Samsung Cloud. It has totally changed. It is a lot useful now wjth ability to see and control your Galary as well as save files and documents on Samaung Cloud drive. It is worth giving it a look.

Hello. How about the multitasking? Is it better now? I know that multitasking on s8 is much better than IT was on s6 or s7, but some apps are still refreshing from time to time. How about that in oreo? Thanks

If you press the home style button with two apps open in multi window, it will make an icon so you can open up the apps again directly in multi window.

Actually… if the device is smoother and better performing… i wouldn’t mind that there arent that much UI changes… TBH the UI is very well made and theres maybe no need to be changed… Again if its smoother and featured packed I don’t mind it.

It’s much MUCH smoother even tho it’s only beta. But new UI changes are always welcome.
