The upcoming Android N is now available as a Developer Preview and its features can be tested out by those who enroll in the beta testing program. Some of the changes are already tested out in the latest update for Marshmallow that Google has released a few days ago, and the Nexus 5X owners are able to enjoy the performance tweaks and the new color temperature toggle. In this article, we’ll talk about the Android N and the new option which has fixed the yellow screen issue.
The March security update that Google has released for the Nexus 5X carries the build number MHC19J and the biggest addition is the Cool color temperature toggle with which the users will obtain cooler colors on their phones’ displays. But, in order to work, this feature needs to be activated and this can be done by going to Settings > Developer Options. This toggle will be a standard option on the devices that will be upgraded to Android N, the upcoming operating system that will receive many features that are currently tested out in the Developer Preview. Google hasn’t decided yet on the name of its OS that most likely will be released in October, and will ask the fans to vote for their favorite name of sweet and savory foods from the online poll.
The name of the current OS, Marshmallow, was revealed only in the mid-August, and we’re hoping that, this time, Google will speed things up and at its I/O developer conference (May 18-20) will tell us how will be dubbed the upcoming N version. Google has added a similar Cool color temperature toggle in the Developer Preview of the Android N, which means that all owners of the phones enrolled in the beta testing program will be able to make their displays cooler.
