Finally Google’s latest Android version, 7.0 Nougat has arrived officially. This new version of Android made its debut last week, but only for the selected devices like Nexus 6, Nexus 5X, Nexus 9, Nexus 6P, Nexus Player, Android One General Mobile 4G and the Google Pixel C. It has some of the coolest features from which you will not be able to take your eyes off.
If you already own one of the devices mentioned above, then it is now about time for you to know some of the best features of this latest version of Android and can enjoy them fully.
Some of the Best Features Provided by Android 7.0 Nougat
#1. Twisted UI and Better Usage of Notifications
Whenever there is a new mobile in your hand or even an updated version of an OS first thing you will notice is its UI and let us tell you that the new UI of the Android 7.0 Nougat may be twisted, but it is highly impressive as well. It allows you instant toggles on the main screen itself when you swipe down from the top and can change your settings of Wi-Fi, Bluetooth even more effectively than now.
Apart from UI the best thing Nougat has brought is the Direct Reply feature to the notifications. Notifications on this latest version are already worth to look at because of the better usage of the screen space and smaller fonts, but because it allows direct response to the notifications right from the front screen, even for the third party apps, the life has been made rather easier. We are sure that this feature will be the most appreciated one from the Android 7.0 Nougat users.
#2. Power Saving
If you think that Android 6.0 Marshmallow offers the best option for the power saving because it has Doze, then the latest version of Android 7.0 Nougat will open your eyes forever. If Doze could keep running your Android device for a longer period on a single charge then the new Doze on the Go on Nougat has taken it to one step further. This is how it works: The Doze on Marshmallow would put your device in the dormant state when the phone is not in use, but Doze on Go will save your power even when it is in the use! Yes, you have read it right. Nougat will keep the apps on the waking up position and will detect the changes in the network connection immediately.
#3. Instant Apps
This could be the real game changer according to us. Till now you have to download an app from the Google Play and then you have to experience it. But with Android 7.0 Nougat now you can directly access the app from the Google Play without even downloading it! Isn’t it great? This will give you an extra hand as far as choosing a right app for yourself without getting into download and removing it if not liked.
#4. Lower System Requirements
What Google did after they release the KitKat version was to build on that technology and we can see that effort has started ripping fruits now in Android 7.0 Nougat. Google for sometimes started working on how to satisfy the needs of the less impressive specification devices and Android Nougat is designed in such a way that it will work pretty efficiently with even lower end hardware tool
#5. Vulkan API Support
The Vulkan API has replaced OpenGL in the Android 7.0 Nougat and that only means that now the mobile games will be more power efficient and not only they will look better but will also work very smoothly. Vulkan will certainly improve the quality of mobile gaming on Android substantially because it has the graphics-intensive applications and thus the user will get the better virtual reality experience.
#6. Seamless Updates
The Nougat has borrowed something from Google’s own Chrome OS playbook and that is minimizing the disruption by commencing the seamless updates. What the Nougat will now do is that it will download the OTA update separately in the background while connected with the WI-Fi and later it will install them as a discrete system image on the device storage. This means that the two systems will continue to work simultaneously and you can use the app normally without running the update in the background. When you reboot the device the updates will automatically be applied.
#7. Daydream VR
To facilitate the VR content driven by Daydream the latest Android 7.0 Nougat has compatible Daydream VR headsets and controllers. The specialty of Daydream VR is that it can work impressively even with latency is as low as 20 ms and that will give your mobile the best VR experience till date. The only problem with this latest development is that Daydream VR is compatible with only few Android devices and the current devices are mostly out of its support boundaries. However, we can expect Daydream VR as an integral part of future devices.
#8. Multitasking has become better with Quick Switch and Multi-Window
With the new Android 7.0 Nougat multitasking has become easier. Now you can switch between the apps more swiftly by double tapping the “Recent” button. This latest version also has the new “All clear button” which was not there with the Android Marshmallow. What is more exciting is that Nougat will allow to open another app if you press the “Recent” button and both the apps will appear together in two different windows! So the split-screen view will make your experience even better!
#9. Google Allo equipped
The Android 7.0 Nougat is equipped with Google Allo, the all new cool messaging app from Google. This app allows the users to do some powerful searching and bookings very much quickly while they are chatting. You can do plenty of other things without even leaving the chat window. What’s more is that Google Allo supports the Incognito Chat so not only your messages are protected but they also got the end-to-end encryption. Allo allows the users to set timers to decide when to expire the messages.
#10. Google Duo
This is another fresh app launched by Google and it has already got the rank of the top free app on the Google Play. This is a video calling app and it aims to make the video calling much easier than ever before. Google Duo also provides the end-to-end encryption on all the calls.
