Smart Text Selection
The new feature is compatible with Android 8.0 Oreo OS. The new feature recommends apps based on the selected text in any document, email or webpage.
The new feature lets you isolate certain webpages. These pages are rendered separately to make sure that they do not share processes or cross-site iframes. However, this process uses 10-20 percent more memory.
The new API automatically detects the amount of memory in the device and can redirect to lite versions of websites. This will help users on low-RAM devices.
