The CEO of Google, Sundar Pichai also announced that -Android now powers 2 billion monthly active device worldwide.

The US is about to see its first total solar eclipse since 1918 on August 21, and Google is getting in on this once-in-a-lifetime event to announce the next version of Android.

Google will be going live with its Android O at 1440 EST, a few minutes right before the eclipse is at its annex. The video, which has since been deleted, was a teaser trailer for the release date of Android O on August 21, during the impending solar eclipse.

Android 8.0 brings new features such as Notification Dots, Autofill, Smart text selection and Picture-In-Picture.

The launch event is taking place at NY and the Android O update will be revealed on 2:40 PM ET. The event also came with the traditional statue unveiling: a superhero Android Oreo. The company has said there are two ways to check out the eclipse: either via NASA's 2017 Total Eclipse Live Stream, or through the reveal for Android O, livestreamed from NYC.

Another major feature that's set to roll out in Android O is picture-in-picture video viewing.

Mewtwo Appears in Pokemon Go; New "Exclusive Raids" Incoming
At the Pokemon GO Stadium event in Yokohama Japan , Mewtwo has been released as a Raid Boss for Stadium attendees. The invitation will reveal details of the time for the Exlusive Raid, letting players prepare ahead of the event.

Google Play Protect will be enabled by default, and there'll be tighter control on apps as they install to make sure they don't overstretch their permissions. Under this, users will be able to use certain apps over other apps.

The software was released at 19:50 BST to coincide with a solar eclipse visible on the east coast of the United States.

Android O will allow users to see notifications even if they've missed them without pulling the drop down menu from the top of the screen.

Android 8.0 will probably begin rolling out to the Pixel phones, as well as Nexus devices from 2015 shortly after the announcement. Nokia has been touting a "pure, updated Android" angle for its Nokia 3, 5, 6, and 8, so now it's time to back up that talk with a quick OS release. Available on Android and IOS.

Once I get a handle on the final build and documentation, you can expect the usual book-length Android review.
