Print <-! print button end -> <-! blog -> Bloggers <-! blog end ->

When a new version of the operating system, Android N, will be available to users in the final version is still unknown, but long before the company gave the already traditional time and place of the announcement of each fresh version of the system, Google I / O, an opportunity for all who wish to download one of the test builds. So, you can take a look at the changes that await us in the Android N. In fact, the visible innovations are not so much, most of the work comes to optimizing operating in different directions (of them talk very briefly), but those “chips” that added, deserve close attention.

Multi-mode (multi-window support)

The fact that for a long time implemented in their shells Samsung and LG, South Korean companies (several other manufacturers as well), Google finally honored to add Android in its purest form. In fact, support for working with multiple windows in android-device suggested itself several years ago when smartphones with a screen diagonal of 5.5 inches longer scare users by their size and even pattern with 5.7-6 inch screens began to be seen normally. Today, such a diagonal accustomed and more judicious use of screens with a few windows – a logical step in the development of the OS.

For tablets and smartphones windowed mode in Android N implemented the most simple and direct way – you can run on a single screen, the two applications so that each occupies exactly half the screen or some part of it, the dimension of working areas for each program can be changed. For the two running in parallel to the windows on the same screen applications available opportunity to drag and drop files and other information (drag-and-drop), but in any of its programs implemented – is not yet clear.

For devices with Android TV support multi-mode will be implemented differently – can be displayed in a small window there is additional PIP when the main screen over the open applications (video, games, etc.) attachment.

Notifications (Notification enhancements)

The Android N redesigned and improved notification system.

For notifications on the lock screen apps, and new themes appeared in the curtain notifications, and the ability to display avatars (user photo) for messages associated with a particular contact.

There was a group of the same type but now they are displayed together (mail messages in a specific client, and so on) are also made available to notification hide button on the screen and the backup (for some types).

On the message can now respond directly from the curtain notifications without opening the app. Probably all of the latest messaging clients (whatsapp, telegram, facebook messenger, etc.) in the near future “learn” it. You can be just click “Reply” in the curtain notifications immediately and start writing the answer, not moving anywhere.

The shutter notifications

An important change is related to the shutter tray. Previously, a gesture from the top down was caused by a large panel with switches, wireless interfaces, and other buttons and the second gesture – the remaining area with cards placed on it notifications, now at the first touch of the top down, “comes up” trim strip with small icons and the notification area. It can be deployed on by accessing the icon interface. Touch on a particular icon in the small window-curtain opens detailed information (tap on the battery icon – battery level as a percentage of consumption, and so on), and a long press brings to the settings of the selected category or interface.

Android N


settings screen has been redesigned completely. With Google decided to abandon the old logic of the menu and remade it. Now, instead of a simple list with a different sub-menu you see when you open recommendations settings – those items and settings that use the most, and the most important information about the device: the volume occupied and the total memory, the amount of available and used memory, the number of installed applications, the level of volume, brightness, and so on. Here is a list of all the menu is on the left edge of the screen (this system is used in the shell Flyme from Meizu, for example).

What else?

The Android N button appeared at the power save browsing (data saver).

The Android of N Improved Doze – branded Android system energy efficiency. Previously, the system was activated after a certain time after the device switches to sleep mode, and now – instantly. Recall that Doze – a system optimization power of the smartphone. When you do not use it, it goes into sleep mode, trying to minimize the power consumption: restricting access of applications to the network, the intensity of the complaints to the network, and so on
