For the uninitiated, the Android 7. Nougat is the 7th installment in Android operating system. The first beta release was launched on March 9 earlier this year.


Google has worked on this edition and has brought some much-needed features including the ability to display multiple apps on-screen at once in a split-screen view, support for inline replies to notifications, as well as an OpenJDK-based Java environment and support for the Vulkan graphics rendering API, and "seamless" system updates on supported devices.

Amidst several features, one of the most interesting options is the "Night Mode", which we saw in Xiaomi mobiles as 'Read Mode" and in Apple as "Night Shift".

Basically, if you turn on the read mode, some parts of the display backlight spectrum are switched off. As per the research from Harvard university, reading from the light emitting device just before bed can

spoil the sleep quality. This is because of the blue color waves from the spectrum stimulate your brain and do not let you sleep.
