Google Android N Preview Scheduled Next Month; Coming To non-Nexus devices
All this time, the Android N preview was only available to Nexus and Android devices. Google has now decided to launch the latest Android 7.0 N at the I/O conference next month to its non-Nexus phones. An HTML text code on the search engine’s own website suggests the beta software, which is in the testing stage, will be expanding to even more products.Advertisement
It is a clear indication that Google will include products from its own OEM partners, however, putting some restrictions on who can use Android N. We can assume that devices with less modified versions of Android might be eligible for the upcoming software.
The good news is Google will possibly release an OTA (over-the-air) update for devices. This means that users can swiftly change from Android preview to the final release without having to flash any software onto their phone, reports TechnoBuffalo.
You may easily install Android N from the Play Store for free. It features a slide screen, allowing you to quickly move towards the left from the home screen that open up quick access to options, toggles and shortcuts. If any user wants to customize this slide screen, however, will have to pay for it in paid Prime version, according to Phone Arena.
Reports state that Android N is a very big update that offers native split-screen support to Google’s OS. Along with this, there are some changes to notification features and a new improved version of Doze, which is an intelligent battery saving option.
In addition, Android N will bring a new “freeform windows mode” that looks similar to a traditional desktop OS. While Google has confirmed plans to launch Android N preview this year, the company is reluctant to reveal much about its new product. To know which devices will support the latest preview, we will have to wait for the I/O developer conference scheduled a few weeks away.
