New Delhi:

Google has started the new Android 7.0 Nougat update. 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 anxious, eventually you will get it. Google has been pushing beta 
builds since March, but this is the real deal.

It is somewhat similar to Android 6.0 Marshmallow. Here are some of the key changes and features that make a difference to the Android experience. The notifications are more informative and richer. Notifications are broader on screen and stacked on top of each other. Long pressing brings notification options for the particular app so you can quickly put an app on silent.

Google has finally added multi-window support. Android Nougat allows you to run two apps simultaneously in a split screen mode. It’s quite simple too; just long press the square multitasking button when you are in an app. The app will automatically move to upper part of the screen.

There is also a Data Saver feature which can limit what apps can do when connected to a cellular connection. Even the Doze battery saver mode has seen an update, but for now we can’t say much as we need to test the update for a few days to actually see if there is an improvement in battery life.

Animations are slicker and menus open smoother. There isn’t a major overhaul of things, but more of improvements. For an early release,it is quite stable.
