Developer Preview 5 of Android Things OS is out, now based on Android O

The new version now supports the use of WebView (mini browser functionality that is bundled for use within a mobile app) on the Raspberry Pi 3.

Google is now wrapping up the Android O as the final developer preview had been released already since last month. Developer Preview 4.1 system images will remain available, but there will be no future updates.

There are several new features in Android O. One is picture in picture, which will let you watch a video in a small window on your smartphone while you perform other tasks.

The blooms happen when there there is strong sunshine, and very little wind or rain to mix up the lake waters. Water from the lakes should not be used for drinking or cooking even after boiling.

The major change is the move to Android O as the basis for Android Things, a decent update for the platform with previous versions based on Android N says Google Developer Advocate Wayne Piekarski.

Another new DP5 feature is the availability of Android Things samples directly within Android Studio for browsing and importing.

And while it remains unconfirmed by Google that Ruddock is on the money here, he did tweet out some further news. Another Android Things target - the older, lower-end Edison module - was also discontinued by Intel.

Chris Murphy blamed President Donald Trump for a unsafe and undiplomatic response to threats from North Korea. Secretary of State Rex Tillerson arrives at a military base in Subang, Malaysia, Tuesday, Aug. 8, 2017.

First introduced at I/O in 2015, Android Things has since then become Google's main attempt at grabbing a significant chunk of the growing Internet-of-Things (IoT) market.

Finally, Google has also implemented "dynamic pin muxing" for the Pi, which means pins being configured at runtime depending on what features are being used.

Since this supposed delay hasn't been addressed Google, it's possible that it might not be be a big deal. This module has since been renamed SprIoT 6UL. These include NXP/TechNexion's Pico i.MX6UL dev kit, previously released as Wandboard.org's Brillo-focused HobbitBoard, and also released by NXP under the name NXP i.MX6UL Development Platform.
