The Android 8.0 Oreo update also brings Google’s exciting new feature called PIP (Picture-In-Picture) mode to ASUS Zenfone 3, that lets users pin an app over other app and use both apps.

As promised earlier, ASUS has started providing the Android 8.0 Oreo update to ZenFone 3 series. The first model to get the Android 8.0 Oreo update is the ZenFone 3 5.2 and ZenFone 3 5.5. Along with that, ASUS also said that they are planning the same for other Zenfone 3 and Zenfone 4 devices as well.

If you are a Zenfone 3 user, you should get a notification regarding the update, but in case you don’t see any such notifications, navigate to Settings>System updates> Tap on ‘Check for Updates’. The size of the update is around 1.5GB. If you’ve not got any notification on software update by now, I’d recommend you wait for some time. If not, you can try discussing it on Asus Zentalk forum.
