WhatsApp new Android update is available only for the 8.0 Oreo

No Android 8.0 Oreo For Essential PH-1, Will Get Android 8.1 Instead

Google has previously stated that, the new Android Oreo update is designed for the premium Android smartphones of future. If you want to try out the update before it officially launches, you can join the beta program right now.

Android 8.0 Oreo on the Essential Phone first became available around the same time as 8.1 started hitting Pixel devices, but the company was quick to confirm that it would be launching that update after 8.0 was finalized. Unfortunately, there's no word on a wider global release, but if the initial rollout goes ahead smoothly it shouldn't be too long before all Honor 9 and 8 Pro users wake up to an update notification. Although the Essential Phone already received three rounds of public Android 8.0 Oreo beta tests, "several stability issues" still stand.

The Oreo update will also allow more efficient Smart Tips recommendation on the Honor 9 and Honor 8 Pro by responding to usage habits faster and more smartly, as well as offering simplified settings, compressing the options from 28 down to just 11 to provide as much information as possible in a simpler way.

Huawei is rolling out this update Over the Air. Do keep in mind that this mode will not work with any app, a particular app needs to support PiP mode, it will work with Chrome and VLC, for example, but it won't work with a regular YouTube app, as you need to have YouTube Red subscription in order to get it to work.

Despite it's falling out in the U.S. market, Huawei is committed to pushing Android Oreo to all eligible devices.

Apart from this, you could even check for the new update manually on your Huawei Mate 9 smartphone as well.
