You’ve all heard about the latest OS from Google by now, Android 7.0 Nougat and you’ve also probably heard that it will soon be fully implemented into newer gen Nexus devices. Those devices so far are the Pixel C, Android One General Mobile 4G, The Nexus 5X, The Nexus 6P, Nexus 9 and the Nexus Player and they are getting the upgrade gradually because it is a somewhat complicated process that will last a few weeks.
Recently, Google confirmed two more Nexus devices that will be receiving the Android Nougat upgrade in the following weeks and those are the Nexus 6 from Motorola and the Nexus 9 LTE from HTC. However, the giant did not offer a specific date for the OS to start rolling out and it did not explain the delay of the upgrade for these two devices that are both new gen.
If you own one of these devices and you want to see how Android Nougat will actually look like when the upgrade is complete, you can register for the Android Nougat Developer Preview.
As we all know, the new OS from Google, Android Nougat comes with significant performance improvements and those include the already very popular multi-window feature, a revamped doze function that saves energy as soon as the screen is off, number blocking and better notifications that allow you to answer a message directly into the notifications.
Google is also encouraging developers to continue to work on their apps and to make them compatible to Android N as there is some talk that some apps cannot support the multi-window feature right now.
In other news, Android N has a new regular maintenance schedule that comprises the next quarters, according to Engineering VP Dave Burke. He also states that they are already working on the first Nougat maintenance release.
