List Devices which are going get Android N
Finally the day is here and Android N (Android 7.0) is official. This news will bring cheers to all those who are using Nexus as the device, but if you are using 3rd Party phone (like Smasung, LG, HTC, or any brand) it will depend upon your device OEM, that when they will roll out the update for you.

The update is currently only available for the more recent Nexus devices including the Nexus 6, 5X, 6P, Nexus 9 tablet and the Pixel C. It is a gradual process so in case you haven’t got the update, don’t panic, eventually you will get it.

Not much has changed from the Beta version of the OS, for starters, the UI is the same and like the beta builds, it comes with new wallpaper with a pink hue. Everything else is somewhat similar to Android 6.0 Marshmallow. We have been using the new update on a Nexus 6P and here are some of the key changes and features that makes a difference to the Android experience.

Some of the cool features that has been added with new Android N are as followes:

It's personal

Nougat users will have better options to personalise their phones including more than 1,500 different emoji built into Android, out of which 72 emojis are brand new. Users can be more expressive now and have an option to choose from a really wide array of emojis.

Better control on settings

With quick settings control, users can easily access to things like Bluetooth, Wi-Fi and Flashlight technology.  With Android Nougat, user can control what tiles go where, and accordingly place them to fit their needs.

Going local

User can enjoy apps with content based on local settings. For example, if someone speaks multiple languages, then search engines can show results in each of those languages.

Productivity gains

Nougat comes with new features like Multi-window, Direct reply, and Quick switch which helps user to do multiple tasks at once.  With Multi Window feature user can run two apps side-by-side, while Direct Reply lets the user reply to notifications without having to open any app. With Quick switch, users can easily switch between two most recently used apps by simply double tapping the Overview button.

Better security

Google has added features like Seamless updates, File-based encryption and Direct Boot to ensure better security to it Nougat users. With Seamless updates, user can install software updates in the background without having to wait for the device to install the update and optimizes all the apps for the new version. This means user can faster update and no more long reboots. Company also claims that Nougat can better isolate and protect files for individual users on their device,  through file-based encryption. Direct Boot also helps the Nougat device start faster, and lets the apps run securely even before one unlocks the device while rebooting.

Battery lasts longer

Android Marshmallow had introduced Doze feature. It is basically a power saving feature that makes the device go to sleep when not in use. However, users required to keep their phones still to turn on the mode. With Nougat, Doze works even if the user is walking and the phone is in the pocket. SoWith Nougat, an Android phone will go to sleep more, faster and deeper. Hence, more battery savings.

Better performance          

Nougat comes with support for VulkanTM which is an advanced 3D rendering API. This will help developers create better looking games by utilising all those cores and extra performance inside the processors like the Snapdragon 820.
