white themes

level
Android 8.1 now shows battery levels for Bluetooth-connected

Dimming navigation
bar automatically
The navigation bar at the bottom of phones usually has a
contrasty look so that it is easier to spot the buttons, but now Android 8.1
automatically dims it when you scroll around in settings and other apps. This
is a nice improvement to help you focus on what you do rather than on the
buttons.

The new font is very easy to read and somewhat reminds of
Apple’s San Francisco. We definitely dig this new look.

Apps can now only
make a notification alert sound once per second
If you fire up a phone that you haven’t used up for a while,
you usually get bombarded with notifications. All of this is accompanied by a
cacophony of sounds. Well, no more. Android 8.1 limits notification alert
sounds to only one per second, so you will get a more serene experience.

No sRGB option in
settings

Curiously, the sRGB color settings has completely disappeared
from settings in the Android 8.1 developer preview. The option was first
present in the display menu, then moved into accessibility, and now seems to be
gone completely.
