First off, Essential announced the update brings smart text selection ability, along with picture-in-picture. Also, many bug fixes have been implemented, as well as some under the hood performance enhancements.
According to Essential, the update is pushed out OTA (over the air) to all Essential Phone users who previously installed Android Oreo beta build 1. If you haven’t done that yet, you’ll have to follow a set of instructions that will allow you to update to Android Oreo beta. You can find more details at the source link below.
Essential promised an Android Oreo update will be released in the coming weeks but hasn’t yet offered an ETA. With the second beta out, we believe the company is getting closer to a final version release.
