Google has announced the name of its next mobile OS as Android Nougat. Lets have a look at features of Android Nougat.
Google surprised us by giving name as Nougat instead of Nutella. Expected release of this version is within coming three months.
Here are some of the features of much awaited Android OS:-
1. QUICK SWITCH AND MULTI-WINDOW
Multitasking is getting better with new quick switch and multi window feature. You can now work on 2 apps simultaneously with multi window feature. However, switching between apps was already available but by clicking recent button now we can switch to previously used apps.
Now it will be easy to drag items between apps with multi-window feature
2. VULKAN API SUPPORT
Graphical intensive apps performance and quality will increase with the advent of Vulkan API support in Android OS.
Vulkan is replacement of OpenGL library which was used from early days of emergence of android.
3. VR Support Increase
Google is going to introduce a new VR platform which is named as Daydream. With the help of this platform VR consumption and usage will be more smoother with new headsets and hardware controllers.
Though it will not be backward compatible, only new headsets from google will be supported.
4. TIGHTER SPECIFICATION OF SMARTPHONES
With Android N, Google is going to target phones with low specifications so that even older phones can easily run this new version on there phones.
Google has worked on the Doze feature it introduced with Android Marshmallow. Doze figured out when your phone wasn’t being actively used and scaled things back accordingly. This resulted in a dramatic improvement to battery life during less busy periods.
5. BETTER UI AND NOTIFICATIONS
UI is also going to change greatly with more beautiful and easy to use design.
