The world has been going gaga over getting Android Oreo for their smartphones and it's time when Android's TV version also gets the sweet treatment.

Motorola has not been quite prompt in rolling out updates in the recent past, as its devices like Moto X Play, Moto G4 Play, Droid Maxx 2 and Moto X Pure Edition are still waiting to receive the Android Nougat update, which was released by Google in 2016. The new permission ensures that the app source itself is checked before the software can be installed.

With the Oreo update, Android TV believes in channels.

Google always had a set of pre-requisites for the OEMs to comply with for running the Play Store and Google's first-party apps.

Some features like the Picture-in-Picture, video preview and others need to implemented by respective app developers for them to make any difference to the user experience. The new feature significantly helps in detecting and removing apps that might be malicious. However, the modified Pixel Launcher that worked for a range of devices has now been updated with Android Oreo features and is now available. Basically, it is a new feature for the system.

Below, you'll find a link to the its APK and, for those unfamiliar with the process of sideloading apps on Android, a simple guide on how to install the launcher on your device.

"With a stable vendor interface providing access to the hardware-specific parts of Android, device makers can choose to deliver a new Android release to consumers by just updating the Android OS framework without any additional work required from the silicon manufacturers", Malchev noted in an Android Developers Blog post in May. While Google has been "certifying" Android devices since quite some time now, it is only now that it has made a decision to launch a website detailing the whole concept to consumers.

Google has yet to reveal the exact rollout date of the Android Oreo on Pixels and Nexus devices, as well as the schedule for other Android phones.
