As Android P approaches, some newer device users still waiting for Oreo feel increasingly frustrated. But the owners of LG G6 on Verizon Wireless are getting some relief: Android 8.0 is now extending to the device.

The update notes are on the Verizon website. The update includes goodness of Oreo as picture in picture for YouTube videos, notification points and other settings such as improved fingerprint security.

LG said it would start upgrading the G6 to Oreo as of April 30. That was almost a month ago, but at least Verizon G6 users do not do it. I have to wait longer.
