Common Android Oreo problems and how to fix them

Android Oreo has been received with great fanfare. In fact, I am also in love with this new update. Of all its features, I especially love password autocomplete, notification points and image-to-image mode. However, the launch of Android Oreo has not been without complaints. Many users are complaining about numerous errors that have plagued this version. Now, any new update of the operating system always suffers from some errors, but, in the case of Android Oreo, the errors are quite annoying, since they are playing with some of the basic functions of the operating system. One more frustrating thing about updating Android Oreo is that some of the features vary depending on the device you are using. If you own Pixel, receive an update that is both aesthetically and functionally better than that received by the owners of the Nexus device line. This is simply unacceptable. Therefore, in today's article, we are going to cover all the common Android Oreo problems that users are experiencing and also the steps to fix them.

Note: After updating your device to Android Oreo, you must first restart your device. Although it is a basic step, you will have to solve some of the minor inconveniences you face.

1. Bluetooth connectivity issues

One of the main problems users experience after updating their device to Android Oreo is its Bluetooth connectivity. Users experience frequent drops in Bluetooth connectivity, since the connection has become erratic and essential. Although Google will launch an appropriate solution, you can take some steps to ensure the correct operation of your phone's Bluetooth.

1. If you are experiencing Bluetooth connectivity issues even after restarting your device, go to the Settings page and "Forget" all connected devices and then reconnect them. In most cases, this should solve the whole problem. To do it, go to Settings-> Connected devices-> Bluetooth . Here you see a list of all your connected devices. Touch the cone of the setting wheel next to each of the device names and press "Forget" .

2. If that doesn't solve your problem, you can try to reset your network settings. To do so, go to Settings-> System-> Reset-> Reset network settings and tap the button Reset Settings .

3. If even that doesn't work, try to start your device in Safe Mode . To do this, press and hold the power button for five seconds to display the "Restart" and "Shutdown" buttons. Here, press and hold the "Shutdown" button to restart the device in Safe Mode . Safe Mode check if there is any damage to the software your device may have. Once you have done that, to return to normal mode, restart your device as usual.

Note: to Restart the device in Safe Mode, all widgets will be removed, so be sure to take screenshots of your widgets to remember your preferences when you need to add them again.

2. WiFi connectivity issues

Although WiFi connectivity issues have not been as widely reported as Bluetooth connectivity, there are some users who complain about some errors. The steps to solve your WiFi connectivity problem will be the same as we just saw. First, "We will forget" all saved network connections . If that doesn't solve the problem , we will reset the network configuration and, as a last resort, we will try Restart the smart phone in Safe Mode . Since the last two steps are the same, do not rewrite them here. You can simply follow those mentioned above.

1. To forget WiFi networks, go to Settings-> Networks and Internet-> WiFi-> Saved networks . Here, just tap the name of the saved networks one by one and then touch "Forget" . Now, reconnect to your network by typing the password.

As mentioned earlier, the Steps 2 and 3 will be the same as mentioned in the subtitle "Bluetooth connectivity issues" . If the first step does not solve your problem, follow them.

3. Square icons on Nexus devices

While Nexus devices are the first online (after Pixel) to receive the Android Oreo update, their joy has been defamed by the fact that some of the features that come with Pixel devices are not for them. Personally, I think it is bad for Google to do that, but there is nothing we can do about it, other than finding a solution to recover those features. One of the biggest complaints from Nexus users with this latest update is that they are still stuck with square icons . As the Pixel launcher is exclusive to Pixel devices, there is no way to get those beautiful rounded icons or, right?

Good, you can install a custom APK of the pixel launcher to get most of its functions, including rounded icons, notification points and all kinds of things. What is even more interesting is that this APK can be installed on devices with Marshmallow and later versions, which allows you to obtain these functions even if you have a secondary device that has not yet been updated to Android Oreo.
