Well, if you are one of the fortunate Android users who can download the update on their device, you will be able to turn notifications for particular messages and turn off notifications for group chats. This is important, especially if we remember that the Note 8 and the Galaxy S8 have only finished the Android Oreobeta period. It says the bugs it's encountering in 8.0 are not present in Android 8.1 Oreo. After three beta releases, the company is not quite satisfied that the update is ready for general release.
The delay will still likely be a big deal for many PH-1 owners, as most of the early adopters of Essential's first Android phone are Android enthusiasts. At the same time, there's a certain level of irony that the 'Father of Android', Andy Rubin, can't get Android 8.0 Oreo to run stably on the Essential Phone. If you want to try out the update before it officially launches, you can join the beta program right now. However, the team announced this week on Twitter that it still has "stability issues" to work out with Oreo that 8.1 will address, and that it's made the decision to focus its energy on Oreo 8.1 instead of releasing 8.0.
Essential is aiming to get the Oreo 8.1 beta ready for late next week, so somewhere from February 6 onwards, we'll keep an eye out for when the beta firmware becomes available. The stability issues mentioned by Essential are particularly interesting, mainly because of the fact that Essential's version of Android doesn't differ too much from a pure Android experience. Let us know in the comments about your expectations for this update and if you think it is a good idea to skip Android 8 and move to Android 8.1.
