The latest operating system from Google, Android 7.0 Nougat, has been rolled out some time ago, although it’s available only for the most recent Android One, Nexus and Pixel devices. This means that those who don’t own a Nexus device have to wait until the general release. However, even then not all the devices will support the Android 7.0.
For now, there is no official date scheduled for the release to other devices, but speculations claim that this will happen for Samsung smartphones towards the end of February and beginning of March 2017. The first device that should get the rollout is expected to be the Samsung Galaxy Note 7. T-Mobile also announced that it will deliver the new OS to Note 5, 6, 7, Galaxy S6 Edge, S7 and S7 Edge.
The features this new operating system brings are not to be ignored either. On the official website we can see that it will bring more than 1,500 emojis, out of which 72 are completely new. Also, it will bring a split-screen mode and a quick-switching one, which enables you to open several apps at the same time. Also, it’s faster now to switch from one app to another, you simply have to double tap on the Multitasking button and you’ll go back and forth between the apps you opened most recently.
The team also worked on notifications and now you can manage the notification settings much easier from the swipe down menu. Besides, you can reply to all notifications now without even opening the app. Simply swipe down and choose if you want to reply or ignore the notification.
But it seems that this is not going to be all the operating system brings new to the users. However, since there is no other information available, we will have to sit and wait until we get any updates on it.
