Google some time ago announced the Developer version of Nougat, But starting today Google Nexus owners can receive the Nougat 7.0 on their devices over-the-air. Nexus device like the Nexus 6, 6P, 5X, Pixel C, or Nexus 9 tablet are getting this update as of now ,, and it will take some time for everybody’s devices to receive the over-the-air update.
This newer version is not drastically different but contain different tweaks and new features on board. Some of them, like improved multitasking, are long overdue and really useful on tablets. The rest are tweaks around the edges — but there are bigger changes underneath that should make Android faster and more secure, too.
Nougat has taken Multitasking to another level with its split screen built-in system level which will result in better App support. This feature is present in some devices now but all apps didn’t supported it. The another noticeable change comes under Notification. Nougat finally has a system-level way for apps to let you quick-reply to messages right inside their notifications. It works as you’d expect: when you get a message, you can drag down on the card, tap reply, and then type and send all without opening the app.
There are also some few tweaks on the Nougat. It also comes VR ready which means one can simply insert their phone on the VR headset and enjoy the Virtual Reality.
And, It’s disappointing to say when the other Non-Nexus devices will be getting this update. From the previous experiences we can say that is not coming within couple of months. It’s been a problem for as long as Android has been around and even though it’s not new, it’s still a problem. Nougat is a solid update, it’s a shame it will take so long for anybody to see it.
