Apps using overlays can no-longer drave over the statusbar consistently.

    LumKitty, Jan 3, 2018 :
    I run two apps that use overlays to customise the statusbar, PowerLine (from the play store) and Display Brightness (old, not available on Play any more, but can still be found on XDA etc.) On Nougat, as well as all my previous phones, these could draw over the statusbar, and intercept touches.
    In the Oreo beta, if an app colours the statusbar then the overlays disappear. With a transparent statusbar (eg. Nova Launcher) you can see them but not touch them
