ANDROID 8.1 OREO FEATURE SPOTLIGHTS
Google had adjusted status bar symbols in its telephones’ advertising materials for the Pixel, however, the gadgets accompanied normal, squared-off symbols as a general rule. In any case, with the presentation of 8.1, ANDROID 8.1 OREO we’re at last getting really adjusted symbols in the status bar, regardless of whether the change is to a great degree difficult to take note. There’s additionally now cushioning on the left and right sides of the status bar symbols, paying little heed to whether it’s vital for your specific gadget.
It’s difficult to see in screenshots, yet the WiFi, cell, and battery symbols have without a doubt been adjusted off. Those of our sharper looked at perusers will have the capacity to recognize this in every day utilize, yet I’m speculating the majority of you won’t take note. It is a pleasant touch, however, and runs better with the general outline of the UI.

What’s less demanding to see is the additional cushioning Google has tossed into one side and right sides of these symbols. This was at that point in 8.0 on the Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL alike. Cushioning is vital on telephones like the Galaxy S8 and Pixel 2 XL that have adjusted corners, however, it’s difficult to perceive any handy reason on the Pixel 2 and the Pixel XL (from which the screenshots above came). In case we’re being straightforward, it appears somewhat lethargic. In any case, maybe Google is simply getting ready for all telephones to have adjusted corners. All things considered, a dreadful parcel does have them these days.
On the off chance that you don’t care for the cushioning and you’re helping with ADB, the folks over at XDA have made a guide demonstrating to impair it. To change the adjusted corners, utilize this summon (26.0 is the default for the 2 XL, and 0 for the 2):
adb shell settings put secure sysui_rounded_size x.x
What’s more, on the off chance that you’d jump at the chance to decrease the cushioning, utilize this charge (default is 8.0 for both the 2 and 2 XL):
adb shell settings put secure sysui_rounded_content_padding x.x
