There are so many new advanced features that have been integrated in the Android 7.0 Nougat that you will love to try with upgrade.
Android 7.0 Nougat Features
- Lots Of Emoji Choices: The Emoji library has been enhanced in Android 7.0 Nougat. Google is giving Android fans 72 new Emoji alternatives with Nougat, including support for different skin tones, new food icons like avocado and bacon, redesigned people icons and that’s just the beginning of the list! A large number of the new characters have a more human-like appearance, which is appreciable development from the blob-like shape of past Android Emoji choices.
- Split-Screen Apps: Google is now offering the capacity of viewing more than one application on the screen at the same time. This indicates that you will have the capacity to run two applications in split screen mode, making it easy to accomplish your tasks like reading an email and editing documents at the same time. This task will be completed without the need of switching between applications. Third-party Android software, similar to the kind found on Samsung’s smartphones, have supported this from a long time. Presently, with Android 7.0 Nougat, Google is determined to make it a standard.
- Simpler App Switching: In the new Android version, you will have the capacity to bounce between the two applications that you have used most recently. You just need to double tap the recent apps button. It is an alternate route that wipes out the need to navigate back to the home screen, making it efficient and easier to complete your tasks.
- Better Notifications: Notifications are getting advanced update in Android 7.0 Nougat. The update gives them a cleaner, sleeker look that makes notification simpler to read. Additionally, there are better ways to do the notifications customization directly from your lock screen. Pressing and holding on notification will allow you to see the options where you can choose either to show the notifications silently or to block all the notifications delivered from any particular application. Third choice, which is the default setting of the Android 7.0 Nougat, allows you to get notification with standard sound alerts and the alert is displayed on the device lock screen.
- More Efficient Battery: With its last Android version 6.0 Marshmallow, Google introduced and integrated a new feature called Doze that kicks your smartphone into sleep mode when it’s lying still on your work desk or night table. Presently, Doze will be active and it will work when your smartphone is moving around in your pocket or in your bag, which will possibly add more battery life to your Android device.
- Quicker Replies: When you get any notification, you will have the capacity to respond and reply to it directly from the notice panel / notification tray in Android 7.0 Nougat. Therefore, whenever you have any message or email, you won’t need to really launch the application to send a reply. Tapping “Reply” button will extend the notification and it will show content box, which is much faster than opening the application to send the response.
- Faster Quick Settings: Google has added an easy route to its Android 7.0 Nougat Settings shortcut. Dragging down from the screen top now pulls up a line of around five quick settings choices called the Quick Settings Bar.
- System UI Tuner: For those users who like ‘sliding scale’ for setting the application notification importance from the developer previews, you can effortlessly enable it in System UI Tuner thru Power notification controls.
- Beta Program And Maintenance Updates: Google has declared that consistent Maintenance Release (MR) updates will be out in pre-release form to those who are on the beta program. The pre-release MRs will bring “regular polish and refinements,” also fix the bugs of the devices and highlight changes before everyone else will get introduced to these features.
- Daydreams As Screen Savers: Google is repurposing the Daydream due to its VR stage namesake. Another name was required for the past feature of Daydream. That new name is Screen Saver, which makes more sense than Daydream did in its past incarnation. Android screen savers still work in an almost the same manner like always.
- Multi-Window Mode Allows Drag And Drop for Text, Images: While using application in split screen mode, you can drag-and-drop images and text between the two windows. You can highlight the content, or make your text float by long pressing the button. You just need to drag the text field from one window and then you can drop it or let it go to another window. Same thing is with pictures for apps.
- Data Saver: When you will use Android Nougat smartphone, you can start using Data Saver mode to restrict the applications from unnecessarily using data in the background. In Data Usage menu, you will need to open the Data Saver and then you will need to turn it on. You can see apps list that has been installed in the device that you are using. After viewing the application, you can choose which application you want to allow for background data usage. Enabling background data connection to the necessary application is necessary because if you will not enable background data then the applications will get data access only when you’re using it.
