11 Features of New Android ‘N’
MULTI -WINDOW – Android N feature :
Androids are existing for so many years, but at last after these many years of existence now android is compatible to support multi-window function. now users can enjoy using two apps in one screen either side -by -side,or one -above-the -other. Android N also supports free form mode which when enabled (by manufacturer) ,allows you to adjust the size of the app window.
A TON OF USER -TWEAK-ABLE UI SETTINGS :
Now , no need to get irritate from those little icons that fill up your status bar,leaving a small space for your notifications. well you can customize them according to your liking, inclusive of the icons of Bluetooth,WiFi,cellular data, alarms and more.
IMPROVED NOTIFICATIONS Android N feature:
Android N supports Direct Reply and Bundled Notifications. ‘Direct Reply’ allows the user to quickly respond to notifications of text messages and various tasks directly from the notification itself. It saves users time, as they don’t need to open an individual app for giving a reply of a message.
whereas, on the other hand ‘Bundled Notification‘ arranges multiple notifications from an app as a single group of notifications.
NIGHT MODE :
Now you can enjoy night mode in Android N . earlier it was first presented in a marshmallow preview .perhaps the best tweak in the system UI tuner : at long last ,stock android has a dark theme.
It actually consists of three toggles. the first one switched the UI to a darker aesthetic. It’s not as pervasive as one would like – it pretty much only affects the settings menu at the moment – but its early days. the other two toggles bring flux -like functionality. another nice tibit : once you activate Night mode; you can also toggle it from quick settings for easier access.
BETTER EFFICIENCY – Android N feature:
Android N is completely a package full of features. as it is optimized for improving the Battery life ,RAM usage, and app performance. In addition to the efficiency , it comes with evolved doze mode, which saves energy when the device has not been moved for a long time, and also saves energy when the device is unplugged with its display off. that means energy will be saved when you are on the move.
EMERGENCY SETTINGS –
Android N wants you to be safe. so it provides an emergency button at the button of the screen ,which provides a dialer for calling 911 or another contact,when someone tries to use your phone when it is locked. although, this feature was first available in the previous version of OS, but new to Android N is an ‘Emergency Info’ button that provides important details about you to a potential helper.
ENHANCED DATA SAVER – Android N feature:
‘Data Saver’ would be of huge help at the end of billing cycle,or when you are using a small data pack. With Android N you can save on your MB, as Android N’s ‘Data Saver’ blocks the background data usage , which makes apps use less data even in the foreground when the user is on the metered connection. with this you can white-list specific apps to allow background usage if they are your lifeline.
APPS CAN MAKE THEIR OWN QUICK SETTINGS TILES :
Perhaps better than the above, Android Police noticed that google has created a new API that lets developers create their own quick settings tiles. these are meant to be controls or actions within the apps,rather than just shortcuts to open an app.
TV RECORDING :
Now , record TV on your phone. you can do so either by scheduling a recording in advance or you can record it live, that means you can start recording something while watching. you can enjoy your recordings by browsing,managing, and playing them.
IMPROVED CALL SCREENING AND NUMBER BLOCKING:
As, Android N attempts to improve on the multiple different methods, manufacturers have come up with over the years to block certain numbers or screen calls by baking a standard into the latest version of android.like fingerprint support and multi window mode,this means that these rather essential process should become more consistent across devices.
PICTURE – IN – PICTURE MODE -Android N feature:
This is the another feature of Android N which have been using for a while in various smartphones,but was missing in the core Android feature set. with this PIP mode ,android tv users can watch a video in a window pinned to one corner of the screen while using some other app. well!! this is what called multitasking.
