Have a look at some of these amazing features from Android 7.0 Nougat
Every year, Google releases a new update to its Dessert Flavored Android OS – keeping its developers busy round the clock. This year, Google will release the new Android Nougat.
Though it advertises it as a bundle of new features, there isn’t much of to be overly excited about, spare some surprises here and there. This version of Android is expected to make some shift in the language and design aspects of the OS, but nothing out of the sky. When it launched Marshmallow, there were some out of the box changes to the interfaces; look and feel and overall UI. But nothing radically different in the Nougat yet. Here is the list of features proposed –
The very first feature that Google boasts about Nougat is that it is safer to use than the other OS. Keeping in mind the list of virus attachments that hog on to the phone memory, safety was a delicate component of the OS. Without much inside news, they announce that Safety has been improved.
The Operating System will update itself easily and faster. A concept borrowed from the Chrome Books. No need to suffer at the “Optimizing” wait screen. OS upgrades will be faster and smoother.
A first-time breakthrough provided in the Nougat, will be data hiding or encapsulation. Some apps like the Alarm, Text Messages and Accessibility Features would start working partially even without signing in while other apps and their data would remain unavailable. Now, with the Direct Booting feature, apps will get access only to certain parts of the file system, required folders, without getting access to the entire external storage folder structure. A much awaited feature with better sorted security.
With Nougat, Google introduces the much awaited multi window along-side multitasking as always. The screen is split 50-50 in proportion by default. While both the apps work simultaneously without one app having access to the other. Good UI will be made available to move the apps on the top or at bottom easily. Seeing both the screens simultaneously come handy for large screen devices, adjusting window size will be a breeze.
The data saver setting is a vital tool that blocks, random usage of data in the background and puts restrictions on things like checking emails or tweets. Few important apps can be ignored from such restrictions.
What is “Project Doze”?
A major difference between Nougat and Marshmallow is the introduction of “Project Doze” that makes the phone consume less battery when not in use. Memory is managed through applications not running in the background. This allows things that the user actually needs to function properly; making the phone faster with less use of the battery.
Notifications can be replied to directly from the spot in the tray without even opening the app. There are as good as 1500 emoji many giving a more human touch and not the traditional cartoonists’ look. Along with basic DVR functions, schedule recordings and record while watching make a great feature for television of Android TV app. Zooming in and adjusting the screen size, accessibility features, like Talkback to initial setup process makes it fun and easy to start.
With the use of regional settings, adding multiple languages in the order of preference is more than a dream. Android Nougat is definitely a big deal for Smartphone users. The good news is that users do not have to wait for Android Nougat to roll out over the air to get on the phone. Anybody who is enterprising can download this OS on the current Marshmallow.
