A few days back Google announced that its Google Assistant, the AI based feature would be available for all Android devices.
The new software that was released by Google is, of course, meant for developers only and Google stresses that it is in no way meant to be used for regular consumers. These notification badges are the small numbers that you see on apps like mail and messages that show number of unread messages.
Like rumored before, Android O will add the picture-in-picture mode along with a host of other additions. Google's tried to improve this by naming and shaming companies who were being slow, but that didn't do much in the end.
On March 21st Google released the developer preview of the latest version of the Android operating system, code-named Android O.

The Android O Developer Preview has simplified the way in which custom ringtones, alarm sounds, and notification sounds can be assigned.

Although the Android update process covers all devices running Android KitKat 4.4.4 and later, which accounts for 86.3 percent of all active Android devices worldwide, it's a sure bet that updates still depend on geographic location, carrier, and manufacturer.
