This is CNET and here are the stories that matter right now. Oreo is the name of the next Android operating system. Google announced the name during the solar eclipse. In New York, Google unveiled an Android statue with a giant Oreo in the middle of its body. Every Android software update gets a sweet treat nickname, and this version, currently in developer beta testing, should arrive on Android devices by the end of the year. Sony is getting geared up to reveal something new for PlayStation. The PlayStation Europe Twitter account posted this short clip of something under a red veil, without much explanation. It is so happens that today marks the start of gamescom, Europe's biggest gaming convention. Sony has no presentation plan for gamescom, but it is having the press conference in October for Paris' games week. Facebook safety check now has it's own dedicated section in the Facebook app. This safety check hub will list all places where the disaster alerts have been activated and how many of your friends were marked as safe. It will also be a spot where people can offer help after a crisis. [MUSIC] Stay up to date with the latest by downloading the CNet tech today app in the Apple or Google Play stores.
