18 Newly Included Features In Android 7.0 Nougat That You Need To Know About!

 

Its celebration time for android fans. The much awaited Android 7.0 which was announced at Google I/O earlier this year, is being rolled out. Obviously nexus line-up will get the update first. This is the first time an android version is being released as an OTA update directly without a nexus device launch.

Nexus 6P, Nexus 5X, Nexus 6, Nexus 9, Pixel C, Nexus Player are the devices that will get official OTA update from Google. Google said it will take a week or two to rollout update to all devices globally.

 

Here are the new features that you can look into, in this latest version.

1. Expanded emoji: There are now over 1,500 different emoji built into Android system, which include 72 new ones.

3. Multi-location support: Apps can feed their content based on your location settings. So if you speak multiple languages, for instance, then search engines can show results in each of those languages.

 

4. Multi-window: Run two apps side-by-side. The windows are resizable, too, by simply dragging the divider. This is already present in few custom skins by other manufacturers, but this feature is built into core system from this version.

12. Daydream: Android Nougat is ready to transport you to virtual worlds with Daydream-ready phones, headsets and controllers — all coming later this year.

 

13. Seamless updates: New Android devices with Nougat can install software updates in the background which means you won’t have to wait while your device installs the update and optimizes all your apps for the new version. And for current Nexus users, software updates now install much faster, so you won’t have to wait for minutes while your device reboots.

 

14. File-based encryption: Android Nougat can better isolate and protect files for individual users on your device.

 

15. Direct Boot: Direct Boot helps your device startup faster, and apps run securely even before you unlock your device when your device reboots.

 

16. Improved system backup coverage: More device settings are covered by Android Backup, including accessibility settings, run-time permissions for apps, Wi-Fi hotspot settings and Wi-Fi network restrictions.

 

17. Work mode: Work mode allows you to turn on and off your device’s work apps and notifications for a better work, life balance.
