Android N: Five changes for consumers
Coming with a surprise, Google officially announced, Android N Developer Preview, the announcement which was expected in Google I/O.

The preview is available with on-the-air update through g.co/androidbeta starting today (10th March 2016). According to Google, the preview of the Android N is not intended for daily use or consumer use.

As the beta version of Android latest operating system, in this article we will try to find out the five changes we are going to see as an Android user in new operating system.


One of the major changes Google is working on with Android N is the RAM requirement to run the operating system with the help of “Project Svelte.” Google wrote “Also, we’re continuing to invest in Project Svelte, an effort to reduce the memory needs of Android so that it can run on a much broader range of devices, in N by making background work more efficient.”

This is the biggest pain of the Android as the amount of devices get updated with latest version of the OS is very less. For example Android 6.0 is running only on 2.3% of the total device. Keeping the point of less RAM requirement in mind, we hope these figures will change in future with Android N.

Third change we will see in Android N is updated notifications. This update gives power to reply directly from the notifications and will also gives you more details about the app, like what you did with app in past. This feature is useful for text messages or updated task.

The inline reply action is an addition button given in the notification pane, according to Google “When a user replies via keyboard, the system attaches the text response to the intent you had specified for the notification action and sends the intent to your handheld app.”


Fourth change that you will notice in Android N is of Quick Settings, this time Google has extended 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.

This time Google has given the power to choose which Quick Setting tiles appear and where they are displayed, allowing users to customize the Quick Setting.


Fifth change that you will see in Android N is the capability of recording Android TV. “Building on top of existing time-shifting APIs, TV input services can control what channel data can be recorded, how recorded sessions are saved, and manage user interaction with recorded content,” says Google.
