    What are Task Snapshots in Android Oreo?
    A Task Snapshot is an infrastructure feature of Android 8.0, so there's no setting to mess with on your end. It's essentially a combination of Recent Thumbnails and Saved Surfaces. When an app goes into the background, the Window Manager places a screenshot of it directly into the graphics buffer. This is retained as long as the app remains in memory and is displayed when you see that app in the multitasking interface.
