Most of the Android users are known that all the new versions of Android name starts with English letters alphabetically. Now it is time for the Android 7.0 version which is currently but not permanently named ‘Android N’. Android N is a major change to the latest Android OS – Marshmallow. It will be released in later 2016. But the beta version and developer preview is already out now on Google Nexus devices and Chromebooks.
Android N has a revamped new look of the whole mobile operating system. There are some notable changes in UI, Performance and speed. Few new features are also added. We will be talking about those new features today. Google introduces some cool new features of Android N in the Google I/O 2016.
This is the era of multitasking. Multitasking saves time and energy. But Android lacks in multitasking windows like the windows OS. Android N solves that problem. It has a true multitasking feelings on mobile. User can split the mobile screen and do different tasks on different screen parts. For example, a user can watch an Youtube video on the half of the screen and use other half of the screen to make a short list of tasks done by him today.
It may not look like a complete new features but Android N let users change their themes and colors of the stock android keyboard. There are a big collection of themes in Android N. Another new addition to the keyboard is the new collection of emojis. People are using those fancy emojis to express their feelings more than often. Google added some emoji faces with different skin tones, so that users will not call them racist.
Google is making easier for the users to choose apps they really need. A user no longer always have to go to PlayStore, search for the desired app and download it. The app will automatically be installed or perhaps a page of the app will be shown when necessary. Suppose, you are reading an article about Unicorn. You searched google for pictures of Unicorns. Google will suggest you a page with Unicorn pictures. But the page is actually an app that will load on your Android OS. You can download the app from the download button on the page if you really like the page.
