Amazing! The Android N Preview just got reality although it's still before Google I/O 16. What?!?
Google seemed to change its plan. They just release the first Preview of Android N.
This are some of the new features:
- Multi-Window Support
- Better Notifications
- Background Optimizations
- Data Saver
- Direct Boot
- ICU4J Android Framework APIs
- Multi-language support
- and moreâ€¦
The preview is available to download for following devices:
|Nexus 5X |
|Nexus 6 |
|Nexus 6P |
|Nexus 9 |
|Nexus 9G |
|Nexus Player |
|Pixel C |
Google has the following release plan:
- Preview 1 (initial release, alpha)
- Preview 2 (incremental update, beta)
- Preview 3 (incremental update, beta)
- Preview 4 (final APIs and official SDK, Play publishing)
- Preview 5 (near-final system images for final testing)
- Final release to AOSP and ecosystem
All updates will be avilable as OTA when you register to the beta program (https://g.co/androidbeta)(The link is broken at the moment, but it's the official one â€“ maybe it works later).
Here are some screenshots:
I promise you'll see more about the N Preview later here on appydroid too.
Are you one of the lucky people with the right device to test it? And will you test it? Commentâ€¦
