Covering proximity sensor now can't turn off ambient display.............

Ambient display on the Android O final version was doing some good thing. It's showing a minimal and less useful UI for some people, while others see something more akin to the old version, we do know of one small (but useful) change to ambient display in O (8.0) covering the proximity sensor now puts the phone back to sleep.

In Nougat and earlier, ambient display won't kick on if the proximity sensor is covered. For example, if the phone is in your pocket. Android O takes that a step further and will actually turn the display off again if the sensor is covered. Again, imagine putting the phone back in your pocket after checking ambient display. It's easy to brush the screen in ambient mode and wake the phone up completely.

But, in Android 8.1 beta preview turn off this feature. However, that's less likely to happen if the screen shuts off as soon as the proximity sensor is covered. mobile devices won't go to sleep covering proximity sensor its kind of annoying. 

It's possible this will change in the final build, or it could simply vary between devices. Still, it's something to keep an eye on.
