Android 7.0/Nougat

Android 7.0/Nougat

Date Written: 8/25/16

This week Android began rolling out their latest operating system, Android 7.0 or N, to some newer Nexus devices. The N stands for Nougat and has a handful of improvements that Android users should be excited about. As always, it may take some time before the update is available on your device as Android makes their OS updates available to different devices over time.

What's new you ask? Well here is a list with some of the key items:

  • Direct Reply - You now have the ability to reply directly to notifications without having to leave the app you were already in.
  • Multi-window - This allows you to run two apps side by side. The windows are resizable so you can decide if the apps take up the same amount of screen space or if you want to see more of one or the other.
  • Smarter Battery - Improved 'Doze' feature allows users to get longer battery life.
  • Quick Setting Improvements - This includes the ability to customize what settings show up where.
  • More emojis, quick app switch, support for Vulkan TM, better security and more!
