The good news is that Google appears to be aware of the issue and are working on a fix.

Android 8.1 seems to be accompanied by a bump in the SDK version, in the sense that it involves enough changes to the API set in order to warrant a new SDK number. But yes Google will still be sending you the monthly security patch.

A new icon for Google lens visual search feature is speculated to launch with the Pixel 2, including the small updates to the screenshot functionality and Bluetooth audio for automotive. But Nexus 6 won't get one because of Google's policy of 18 months update program. In other words, once there was launch a of Android 7.0 in August, Google released Android 7.1 with the Pixel and Pixel XL on October 4, 2016. But guys don't be sad as we have a solution to your problem.

Such is the case with the recently released Android 8.0 Oreo update, in which some users are reporting that despite WiFi being turned on, their devices are still consuming mobile data.

The AOSP ROM has been made by S.I.X a team of developers which is a near stable ROM based on Oreo. But there are custom ROMs those can be installed unofficially so that users of such phones can get to relish the goodness of the latest version of Android. The company is also keeping "Oreo" in the name. Talking about more options, there are many more features like gesture settings, battery light customization etc.

Android Oreo also brings numerous new features such as picture-in-picture, which allows users to do two tasks simultaneously, like checking the calendar while planning a party on a Duo video call.

But for now Lineage OS 15 isn't available, so you can prefer to use AOSP ROM port based on Android 8.0 Oreo.
