Hey-oh Android O! 👋

Earlier this week, Google announced the availability of the Android O Developer Preview. We’ve been anticipating this for a while and it’s arrival certainly didn’t disappoint. The developer documentation shows lots of enhancements to existing features and a few key new ones as well. And of course, one in particular that has our entire Android team buzzing with excitement…

My producers want me to dangle that one in front of you for the next 45 minutes while I talk about the other features in Android O that don’t have much impact on 1Password. They want me to talk about the new Picture-in-Picture mode that will allow you to pretend to work while binge-watching Netflix on any Android device. Then I’ll hint that the big reveal will come after the commercial break…

Once back, I’ll launch into an explanation of how notification channels will allow you to selectively mute certain groups of notifications while leaving others untouched. From there, I’ll segue into a discussion of the neat animated effects and customizations that adaptive icons will make possible. And that will bring us to the next commercial break and more promises of things to come…

And while I’m at it, I should probably mention multi-display support, autosizing text views, integration with Google’s safe-browsing API, in-app pinning of shortcuts and widgets, improved animations and more. Seriously, there’s a lot of great stuff in this OS release. But that’s not why you’ve tuned in. That’s not what you want to read about. You want to know why we’ve got our O-faces on…

So let’s jump right into it. The best part of Android O is the Autofill Framework!

Autofill, O my!

So what do you do when you get a new present? If you’re a geek like me and that present is the Android O Developer Preview, you definitely unwrap it and play with it! In this case, “unwrapping” took a few minutes and a couple of downloads, but in short order I was ready to start my new life as an Android O developer :laughing: Within a few hours, I was able to put together a basic demo of what automatic filling with 1Password might look like.

As you can see in the video, after navigating to the login page in the Twitter app, the Autofill Framework notified 1Password that there were some fields that could be filled. 1Password then responded by letting the Autofill Framework know it recognized those fields as a login form, but that it needed to be unlocked first. I was then prompted to unlock 1Password if I wanted to continue.

After I unlocked 1Password with my fingerprint, my example Twitter credentials were displayed in a dropdown provided by the Autofill Framework and automatically filled when I tapped on them.

Like all great technology, it feels like magic, and I’m in love with Android O already!

I can’t wait to share more with you as we continue to develop this into the automatic filling experience that we’ve all always wanted. In the meantime, feel free to share your curiosity, excitement, and favourite Android O features with us in the comments below.
