It was always coming! Google finally pulled the wraps of the much-anticipated Android Nougat stable build release to Nexus devices along with the Pixel C. The update will start rolling out from today and it weighs around 1.1GB in size.
To recall, Google released the Developer Preview of Android N five months ago and last month the company released the final build of Developer Preview. Also, there are rumors which stated that the Android N update will start its rollout from August 22 and the final build is here at last.
The devices which are supported for Android N update are the Nexus 6P, Nexus 5X, Nexus 6, Nexus 9, Nexus Player, and the Pixel C Tablet. As said earlier, the update already started rolling out and it may reach your device at any time.
As per Google, Android N is a major upgrade over the previous iteration of Android which is Android Marshmallow as the company has added around 255 new features to tweak the operating system.
Google has improved features such as Doze Mode to save more battery life. Additionally, there are some other interesting features such as new emoji, notification shade improvements, a brand new multi-window mode, better quick settings, hamburger settings menu, and so on.
However, the most interesting feature, Android N Seamless Update won't be supported with the above mentioned devices as the chipsets in these devices may not handle the feature. It will be available in next generation Nexus devices which are due to launch sometime in September or October 2016.
