Android Nougat 7.0 is the latest iteration of the Android operating system. Some of the changes include
DayDream changes to Screen Savers
Google has named its new VR Platform as DayDream. So, the old DayDream feature on Nougat has now been named as Screen Savers. However, there are no changes in the way they work.
There has been a change in the way multitasking can be accomplished. Just double tap the Recent Apps button to switch between two recently used apps. This can be useful when you are working interactively with two apps. As for instance, between your browser and email client.
Till now, Multi Window feature had been available only on some device manufacturers. Samsung users have long been able to use the feature on their smartphones. Android Nougat brings this feature to all Android devices. In other words, Multi Window has now received a native support. You can drag and drop items from one window to another seamlessly.
View app source
Android Nougat can now keep track of where you have installed an app from. Go to Settings and then Apps. Tap on the application you want to know about. It will let you know of the source on scrolling down to the bottom.
Notifications from your apps can now be bundled into one single alert. So, instead of getting your notification tray filled with a huge list of notifications from a single app, you can now have a cleaner look for the notification tray.
Reply from Notifications
Your replies to messages can now be faster. If you are responding to the comments and messages from Facebook Messenger, WhatsApp and the like, you can do so from the notification itself. Some apps had introduced the feature, but now you have native support for the same.
Settings menu on Android Nougat has a simplified navigation. You now have a Hamburger menu that lets you jump through different sections without the need to scroll up or down. No more tapping back or scolling all the way down or to top to navigate between the menu items.
Better Emoji support
With the high use of instant messengers and social media, Emojis have attained a lot importance. Android Nougat comes with huge collection of Emojis built right into the software. Smilys now have a newer look.
Android Nougat comes with a new Data Saver option. You can now control the apps from using your data in the background. Just enable it from your settings and then navigate through apps list to blacklist or whitelist apps from using background data.
Those were actually just the tip of the iceberg, so to say. The latest update will have many more new features.
Live....and Let Live!
