Google has been following a similar pattern with its Android naming process. The name is, and no, it’s not Nutella or Neyyapam, it’s ‘Nougat’. We didn’t see a lot of applause coming in for that, now. ;)

Just in case you’re unsure, here’s how you pronounce it: ?nu????.


But anyways, what’s in a name? As long as Google gives us a refreshing change and some nifty features with the new OS, which is now in a stable beta, why would we care? So what does Android Nougat have to offer? Here are some of the highlights.

Split-screen Multitasking

This means that the device screen can show two different apps simultaneously, and video apps will support picture-in-picture mode. The system fills the screen with two apps, showing them either side-by-side or one-above-the-other

Notifications

You can now reply directly from notifications and the interface will let you see more app information than what you did previously

Quick Settings

In Android N, Google has expanded the scope of Quick Settings and added more room for additional Quick Settings tiles that can accessed across a paginated display area by swiping left or right.

Android for Work

Android for Work has been updated with a new feature and APIs for devices running Android N. Profile owners can specify a separate security challenge for apps running in the work profile

Project Svelte – reducing RAM usage

Project Svelte is an ongoing effort by Google to minimize RAM use by system and apps across the range of Android devices in the ecosystem.
