The Google I/O developers conference will end today, the giant company will make more announcements about its products. In the first day, the third Android N Developer Preview went live and Google has said that this is the beta version of the upcoming operating system, being more stable than the previous Developer Previews, but it still comes with bugs.
This is the first year when Google rushed things out and didn’t wait until the Google I/O event to announce a new edition of its Android operating system. The company made the big step on March 9, when it launched the first Android N Developer Preview for Nexus 5X, 6P, 6, 9 and Pixel C, but on the list were also included the General Mobile 4G (Android One) and Sony Xperia Z3 devices.
At the Google I/O event was released the third Android N Developer Preview, and the factory images are now available on the internet. Users will just download them and flash the beta version of the upcoming Android N, whose name hasn’t been established yet.
It’s interesting that the new developer build carries a new update functionality that was introduced on Google Chrome OS, allowing devices to automatically download software updates when they arrive, but they will be downloaded in the background, without interrupting other processes and forcing the user to close any applications. Also, when the device is restarted, the update is installed automatically, so the users will no longer need to look for updates on the Google Play store and they will be insatleld without any confirmation.
Android Marshmallow came with many new features, and to mention a few, we remind you about Google Now on Tap, App permissions and Doze. Android N will improve Doze, the battery saving feature, which will be renamed as Doze on the Go, there will be 72 new emoji and new features such as split-screen mode for better multi-tasking. Also, users will reply to alerts directly from the notification area, so they will no longer to open messaging applications. Another novelty is support for Vulkan API, which will allow game developers to bring more graphics effects.
