I don't like your little games
Don't like the stupid way
You don't listen when I say
Android Auto's on the fritz, no, I don't like this
Ooh, look what you made me do
Look what you made me do
You made me fix Android Auto bugs for you
"I'm sorry, the old Slacker can't come to the phone right now"
"Why?"
"Oh, 'cause she's dead!"

O Oreo, Oreo! Wherefore art thou Android Oreo?
Deny thy Slacker bugs and refuse thy crashes.
'Tis but thy Bluetooth not pausing when disconnected that is my enemy.
What’s “Add Station to Home Screen?” That which we call a rose
By any other word would smell as sweet, but stinks when malfunctioning.
Oreo, doff thy crash while Slacker is backgrounded,
And for that crash, which is no part of thee
Take this update.
*CLIFFS NOTES*
We fixed some bugs associated with Android Oreo.

A sleep timer? You mean I can set the timer so Josh Groban’s sweet voice can sing me to sleep as I dream about running my fingers through his luxurious hair while he makes a tuna noodle casserole for us to feed each other under the light of a waning moon while the tinkling sound of our laughter mingles with the wistful cries of exotic sea birds calling out to each other in search of the comfort of companionship under a blanket of crystalline stars??? Cool. I've always wanted a sleep timer.

• We've fixed a bug that caused some ads to act weird and freeze up your listening experience. Upon install, you may see a "find accounts on the device" message that, when you agree to it, will give US permission to ask YOU permission (follow me here) for functions (if applicable) you may want to use down the road. We always want to ask for your permission because you're the boss of us and we are desperate for your approval.

• So you know that thing where your hearted songs disappeared from My Music (No? Carry on, then!)? That was our bad: you didn’t lose them, you just couldn’t see them…and now you can. Everything is fine now, so let’s just pretend it didn’t happen, OK? OK.
• If you got a "please try again later" prompt when adding songs to a playlist, it was probably due to a slow/interrupted connection. We bumped up our timeout threshold so you won’t have to deal with that any more. See how much we love you?
