What is an android? Well, it’s a necessity. The heart and brain of our phone. There’s always been the iOS vs. Android war, but we’d leave that to the techies to argue. For now, let’s focus on the new Google Android Nougat, also called the Android N. What should we expect from Google’s latest offering? A lot of fun stuff in terms of their operating system. And Googlelites have always been the best when it comes to entertaining us. Android, tablets, apps and designs. So we can expect some pretty cool features from the Android N.
7 features of the Android N you need to know:
- Multi Window
Apps floating on your screen! Oh we love it. We knew the multi window feature will eventually come to Android and it’s finally here. With this feature, users can use apps in a split-screen mode and picture-in-picture mode as well. Like we said, apps floating on your screen. This feature will also work on tablets and Android-powered TVs.
The notification bar looks spectacular. It has been completely redesigned with a single minimalized row of settings icons. Additionally, users can also long press a notification and choose whether they would like to block them or display them.
- Doze Mode
In your pocket and off goes the screen. Saves up a lot of battery. That’s exactly what the Doze mode is for. Keep it in your bag or pocket and the screen will automatically turn off. Think of it as the phone is having a power nap for the phone.
