After the official launch, Android Oreo (8.0) update is already pushed on many Android Devices such as Pixel, Nexus, Samsung, HTC, Sony and many Android Devices.

To be true “App is running in the Background” looks battery savior for Android Devices but the thing is, it just indicates that which app is running in the background and we can’t do anything about that app, except uninstalling one of our useful app. Most weird thing about this notification is we can’t disable this notification from inbuilt settings of Android Oreo (8.0) itself and this make me shout towards Android Developers, WHY Google? WHY? Android was the choice of millions because we were able to customize it according to our likes and dislikes and this isn’t the case anymore on Android Oreo.

Summary:

Why “App is running in the background” notification looks WEIRD

Initially “App is running in the background” notification seemed Android savior which was only available on Android Oreo but as I mentioned earlier this notification just tensed our mindset just by letting us know that which bla-bla app will run in background and which app is raising the heat of your devices by this degree and you can’t do anything about that. This will also give you annoying heat snooze after a small-small interval of times. So why to to be tensed of matter which was taking place earlier too but it was all fine.

Android Oreo must include statistics data, which app is running for how much time daily and hence we would take decision to replace that app with their alternative rather then giving us only real time background app usage. By seeing a week data in one note would make it easier for us to decide that which app we must uninstall it from our device.

Some App such as VPN will always run in background and that’s we all know that and hence there is no need of special indication by by notification that VPN is running in background that looks too weird, isn’t it?

Android is best known for its clean notification bar, every android user want to clean notification bar every time he or she have a look at its pending notifications but this annoying notification will last forever which feel us bit distress about what is going on this Android Device.
