The main features of the new version of Android 7.0 Nogat and how to get update – BBC

Like it or not, is still a major concern of almost all Android-smartphone is the speed and autonomy. Therefore, in the new OS version, emphasis was placed on these indicators, although no other notable innovations not done.

There is no significant visual changes. This is still the usual Material Design, but with slight modifications.

This multitasking

With the release of “nougat” in Android came true multitasking , in the manner of the one that has long appeared in the Samsung devices. Let the idea is not new, but now every developer shell under your device has access to it and can implement multiple windows.

So, next to almost any application, you can run the second program, and both will work simultaneously. There are three ways to activate this function: When holding the multitasking button, the window of recently opened programs and hidden process which is activated in a separate item “Settings”. Once activated, you can select the second application swipe up the multitasking button.

The rest of the principle of operation is no different from that of iOS and Windows.

Once both applications are on the screen, you can move the splitter and thereby alter, in what proportions the screen will be divided. Once enabled multitasking button will be transformed, and after pressing the dual view will turn off.

Curtain notifications

The biggest change occurred with the appearance of the notification. Now the warning does not look like a single tile, and occupy the entire width of the screen and connect to other alerts. Multiple notification of the same program are now combined into one, making the notifications panel less cluttered.

At the same time they have a new API, which allows developers to make interactive notifications. Now you can reply to the message to the messenger without opening it, and a notification.

Menu with quick setup was convenient and is right there in the curtain notifications.

once the user opens the shutter notices it immediately available quick settings that it can be interchanged. The disclosure of the expanded version of this window is necessary, as before, to take another swipe down on the field.

Doze 2.0

In order to increase the operating time of Google devices updated its technology Doze power saving . It was introduced in Android 6.0, but do not cope with the task. Its essence lies in the fact that the OS analyzes, at which time the smartphone is used, and at what time simply is not the case, such as during sleep. At a time when the OS understands that the smartphone is not used for a long time, she puts it in standby mode and thus saves battery.

Those who have been able to try release version “nougat”, note that the lifetime of the device increases by 15-20% due to the new technology.

in Android 7.0 Doze accuracy has been increased, and is now operating more accurately determine the time when the smartphone is not the case, and optimizes system performance, depending on the use case

API Vulkan

Vulkan -. a kind of analogue of Metal on of iOS, designed to improve graphics and gaming performance. This API allows developers to work directly with the graphics chip and offers access to more effects like blur, improved effects of fire and others.

Due to the API Vulkan will decrease the load on the graphics smartphone chip and increase productivity.

So far, API Vulkan was only available to owners of Samsung Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge, however, due to the low prevalence of the developers did not dare to optimize their games for only two smartphones. Now that Vulkan is available for all Android-devices, users will have games with improved graphics

However, this feature is not available to everyone, and in particular the Nexus devices-it does not get it. The fact is that for the update in the background needs an extra storage section, which will be installed and updated. The current device, respectively, are not designed to work with this feature, and it is only in the new devices.
