Top 7 new features to look forward in Google’s Android N; Here’s the answer to its next name

Sharing is Awesome!

Google surprised everyone on Wednesday by releasing the
Android N Developer Preview significantly earlier than expected. Google has
made lit of improvement in their latest Android N Preview. Unlike before, you
no longer need to unlock the bootloader and flash the latest system files. This
time around, Google has simplified the process of installing the developer
preview version via OTA (over-the-air) update. We also reveal the Secret Name
behind the Android N.

 The Android N
Developer preview offers a look at new features which will be available in the
next Android build, lets take a look to it. 

Multi-window support:
The most important change you’ll find the multi-window feature that’s allows
you to run two apps side-by-side, both on your smartphone and tablets. This
isn’t actually a new feature as Samsung had already implemented it on its
Galaxy smartphones. The company has also added resize option for apps which can
be done by dragging the divider between them
Notification
enhancements:
Google has also redesigned notifications in Android N build
which will include template updates, bundled notifications, direct reply, and
custom view. Users will be able to reply to text messages right from the
notification panel, without having to open it while I am using this feature
from 6 month with the help of Snowball. 
The Quick Settings panel has also received some tweaks that
Google says makes it even “more useful and convenient.” In Android N,
more room has been added for additional Quick Settings tiles. Further, users
will be able to control over what Quick Settings tiles should appear and where
they are displayed. For changing the tiles, users can just move or add tiles
just by dragging and dropping them.
Improved data saver: Google
has introduced an all-new Data Saver mode, which will help reduce cellular data
use by apps. After activating the data saver mode from settings, the system
blocks background data access to apps, which will help save data consumption.
Number blocking:
Android N adds native support for number blocking, allowing users to keep the
unwanted callers at bay. Google says that the new feature will apply to the
default messaging app, the default phone app, and third-party provider apps can
also read from and write to the blocked-number list. One of the biggest
advantages of having the number-blocking feature in system is that blocked
numbers will persist across resets and devices through the Backup & Restore
feature.
Always-On VPN:
Android N also gets support for always-on VPN. When a user starts work related
apps, the system will automatically start them via VPN they are configured for.
To set always on VPN, users can head over to Settings > More > VPN.

Svelte, the
background optimizer:
It focuses on optimizing the RAM usage in an effort
to minimize the memory used by the apps and the system. Project Svelte aims to
optimize the apps that run in the background. Proper handling of background
apps can not only speed up the Android device but also help in conserving
battery life hogged by apps.
Other feature of Android
N
: Some of the other changes introduced in Android N include a
redesigned user interface for system Settings, which now includes a hamburger
button on the left side of the screen for quickly jumping to a different option
without hitting back to main menu; Android N also adds framework interfaces and
platform support for OpenGL ES 3.2; new app switching feature with recent
button which also doubles for split-screen option, and Night mode is now
available in Android N. 
Now we get back to its main thing, What’s in a name? but
here’s everything is in the name, A post was sent out by Google’s VP of
Engineering at Android, Hiroshi Lockheimer
, a little earlier today which
further looked to expand on the developer preview release of Android N. What was
interesting though, is the line Lockheimer used to close out the post. The line
reads as follows, “So, the burning question that’s on everyone’s mind: what
will the N release be named? We’re nut telling’ you yet.” Now, of course the
instant reaction to this will be that this is Google’s way of suggesting the
name of Android N on release will be ‘Nutella’.
