Android 7.0 Nougat Final Developer Preview Is Out
As we already know, it may take some weeks before the Android 7.0 Nougat is publicly unveiled, Google recently released the final developer preview of its mobile OS.
The latest version of the Android operating system has added newer features such as Quick Settings, support for multiple windows, enhanced notifications and new emojis. It will also bring upon boot checks as another way of detecting malware quickly, thereby making a phone which is infected with various malware unable to boot, or start up in a limited-use mode if you want.
Discussions which range from new Android plans to details of the preview were recently held in a Reddit Ask Me Anything session by the Google engineer team on Tuesday. The engineers also reveal that the company has been in collaboration with other top OEMs regarding the developer preview in order to have their updates ready on time.
In a recent blog post, the Vice President of Engineering, Dave Burke discloses that the Android N Developer Preview 5 will be the final build before it is finally released:
Last month’s Developer Preview included the final APIs for Nougat; this preview gives developers the near-final system updates for all of the supported preview devices, helping you get your app ready for consumers.
The upgraded software is for Nexus 9, Nexus 6, Nexus 6P, Nexus 5X, and Pixel C devices, including General Mobile 4G [Android One] devices. Users which are already in the Android Beta program are also entitled to get automatic updates.
