Android’s Nougat 7.0
The latest buzz in the Android world is that tech guru Google is just about to roll out additional features for Android 7.0 Nougat and Marshmallow devices. Nougat 7.0 is the major revision of Android for 2016/2017. Although this is considered good news by most users, Google has not yet confirmed the specific devices eligible for the latest release. But the question that remains is whether or not this Android OS update is actually worth getting excited about. The following are four prominent features of the latest release.
Ever thought of the fastest way to switch between tabs? Nougat 7.0 is as fast as it can get. Users can quickly jump between two recent apps by simply double-tapping on the “Overview” button. This is a button in form of a square icon located to the right of the three virtual navigation buttons situated at the bottom of the display.
This is a feature that has recently been added in Nougat. Once you confirm the application is compatible with your device, multi-window is started by long-pressing the “Overview” button to split the screen in half the display, with the new half displaying the usual app-switching carousel. The added advantage of this feature is that it allows you to simultaneously run two apps side-by-side on your device.
Improved Battery Performance
Doze, which was first introduced Marshmallow, is a powerful tool that has received countless reviews for its role in battery saving. It is a tool that prevents apps from sending or receiving data without having to disable mobile data. Android 7.0 Nougat has boosted the Doze through integrated sensors to detect whether or not a device is idle so that the power usage is limited.
Notification and Data Saver
Data saver is a function activated to reduce cellular data used by applications. Located from the notification dropdown, data saver mode actually saves data by blocking background data usage, image quality reduction, limiting bit rate streaming, and much more. An important point to note is that Android 7.0 notifications are now expandable compared to 5.0 and 6.0 notifications which are simply white Post-it notes.
Encryption is critical for any business or person. In contrast with the previous versions, Nougat ensures that each file and folder saved is exclusively encrypted and protected. This is more secure compared to the older mobile OSs making Nougat the ultimate file protection choice.
There is a pool of attractive tech innovations out there but the fact stands that without a resourceful operating system it is clearly impossible to explore these creations. Nougat is a powerful android package boasting quite a range of features including Vulkan API and enhanced performance. Android users should, therefore, explore this latest release by Google and experience the ease in which 7.0 provides in running different mobile applications.
