Samsung appears to have resumed its Android Oreo rollout for the Galaxy S8/S8+
Android Oreo hasn’t quite taken the foothold that Google wants it to in regards the Android market as a whole. The main reason for that is easily OEMs who have yet to update their devices to the latest OS. Samsung is the biggest Android OEM, so any steps it makes in this area make a difference. Now, the company is resuming its Android Oreo rollout to the Galaxy S8 after halting it earlier this month.

Google Assistant speakers are starting to take a serious hold in the market, and while Google Home Mini is largely to thank for that, third-party options are a big part of it as well.
