Like past Developer Preview versions, (for example, Android M, which later got to be Android Marshmallow), the first version of this product does not contain all the new features of the next version of Android.

The first update to the Developer Preview was introduced on March 17. In case you’re signed to the Android Beta Program, you can hope to see the upgrade arrive over the air soon.

Menu Between the System Settings

At the point when a user is in the Bluetooth menu, for instance, they can rapidly bounce to the next system alternatives utilizing this left side menu. This menu is now a standard in other Google applications.

Reply to Messages From The Notification Bar

Of the new additions, this is conceivably the feature which most looks like Apple iOS. Messages can now be replied from the notification itself. With this, the user won’t have to leave an app to answer a message or even unlock their phone.

Multi-Window Mode

As we found in the Android M developer preview, Google has been striving to bring a native and effective multitasking system to Android. In spite of the fact that the capacity was inevitably precluded from Android 6.0 Marshmallow, with Android 7.0 Nougat, Google now appears to be prepared to make the jump.

Multi-Window Mode in Android 7

Like most of the major platform changes, developers will need to pick in for the split screen mode to permit their applications to run easily. This should be possible by including another feature called: re-sizable Activity.

This attribute permits developers to specify the base size the application can be re-sized to and to figure out if resizing will be prompt or the application needs to restart with the required measurements.

New Notifications Panel

The notification panel has been totally redesigned, perfectly adjusting to what we had seen in earlier leaks. Icons over the notification side are now more prominent, and on the far right, there is a drop-down switch to expand the panel.

New Notification Panel in Android Nougat

It is presently conceivable to react to messages straightforwardly within a notification, a feature that uses the same Remote Input API that Android Wear makes use of.

Notifications can now likewise be ‘stacked’, enhancing the space in the notification area. Developers can stack notifications from the same application in a solitary line. These can then be expanded utilizing the expansion button or a two-fingered gesture.

With Developer Preview 2, notifications can be set manually at any of six levels of significance for each app:

  • Blocked – never indicate notifications
  • Min importance – quietly appear at the bottom of the notification list
  • Low importance – noiselessly indicate notices in sequential order
  • Normal importance – permit these notifications to play sounds
  • High importance – look onto the screen and play sounds

Earlier, the feature had just worked when the phone had remained totally undisturbed for a long time, i.e. when you’re dozing, however now Google says Doze will likewise spare battery whenever the screen is turned off. We will need to test the new system all the more altogether to discover what impact it has on energy utilization.

A system like this that becomes effective every time the phone’s display turns off won’t be something everybody is enthusiastic about, but rather we’ll need to perceive how it functions by and by. It is conceivable that a less extreme version of Doze mode, one that monitors the energy consumption of apps without impairing the ease of use and notifications, may be worked out.

Android Beta Program

Android Beta Program

Another new expansion from Google is an approach to get preview builds and updates over-the-air, staying away from the requirement for flashing factory images. Anyone with a compatible device is able to sign up for the Android Beta Program and receive these preview builds automatically.

A few features we may even need to sit tight for the last build to get some answers concerning. For the time being, the app drawer still remains, despite the fact that bits of gossip propose that it might vanish later on.

Svelte Design

Google says it has been working diligently on Project Svelte, an arrangement of changes that make Android more ready to keep running on maturing and less powerful devices. This anticipates starts from Android KitKat yet we don’t know much about it yet. More subtle details ought to take after with the full arrival of Android 7.0 Nougat.

VR Mode

We saw the first insight of what numerous suspected at an early stage: native support for VR in Android 7.0 Nougat. The indication of what Google is really going after shows up in a menu in the new Android system. By going to Settings > Apps > Configure apps > Special access > VR helper, you can observe a menu screen holding up to be filled by a rundown of applications that are making use of an API designed for VR apps.

VR Mode Android N

There’s additionally something many refer to as ‘Sustained performance mode’ referenced, that is in all likelihood proposed to help gadgets run this demanding VR mode for longer periods of time. As any individual who has utilized a Gear VR will know, the phone rapidly turns out to be extremely hot and boots the user out of the VR software, an issue that Google should overcome if VR is to wind up more far reaching.

3D Touch Support

Apple’s iPhone 6s dispatched with a pressure-sensitive screen that permitted users to make use of shortcuts by squeezing either softly or vigorously on the screen. Presently, it looks just as Google won’t put 3D Touch in its Android OS.

The new feature, called Force Touch or 3D Touch was initially specified in the Android 7.0 Nougat Developer Preview reports yet sources now say this won’t be incorporated into the dispatch of Android 7.0 Nougat.
