Android 8.1 Oreo first rolled out nearly two months ago, but Google has continued to improve the mobile OS and give users new features on a fairly consistent basis ever since. One of those new features arrived on Monday, as Google revealed that Oreo is now capable of displaying the speed of public WiFi networks before the user connects.
"Public Wi-Fi can be spotty," Google explained in a tweet yesterday linking to the updated support page. "For the first time, Android 8.1 lets you take out the guesswork & see the speed of networks before you hit connect."
