Finally we know the letters following “N”, the seventh version of the Android operating system. It's called Android Nougat and, although it seems nougat, it is not.

This is the name that has voted the user community, as Google itself requested at its last conference for developers, with what others are discarded as Nutella, Nocilla, Natilla or any other delicious and sweet name starting with N .

However, what is striking about this story is not just the name itself, but the way in which Google has decided to reveal how Android 7.0 would be called, as it has done through the Snapchat application.

In this way, and through short videos and photographs that will disappear in 24 hours, it showed the steps of that discovery, from the laboratory of names de Android N until it has uncovered the sculpture located at the gates of the building of Google in Mountain View, California (U.S).

Android N

Android N was officially unveiled at Google I / O2016, said developer conference. However, even an official arrival expected. Now that we know its final name stack.

Of course, for months the beta or test version for developers is already around for many phones, something that has given us some very interesting hints of what is to come.

It is known that Android Nougat offer as standard split-screen functionality. That is, any cell that is upgraded to Android 7.0 can open and run two applications simultaneously.

A step beyond multitasking, allowing simultaneous control of these tools, while, on the same screen.

It is also known that will revolutionize the notification system known to date. In this way, applications like WhatsApp allow us to respond directly from the notifications that are displayed at the top of the screen. Other applications may occupy much space on the panel to launch its functions and options directly in the notification, without accessing the application.

Along with the new Nougat, Daydream, a technology also presented at Google I / O and commitment to quality augmented reality it will be presented. Of course, the moment is only compatible with mobile devices and built around this concept.

We also know that this new version of Android will improve the Doze system. Something that Marshmallow and introduced Android 6.0 and serves to drastically reduce the consumption of battery terminal.

Google has enabled and four previous versions of Android Nougat (about alpha and other beta) and expects to release an update to the beta version in July and then release the final version of the operating system so that users can begin receiving the update or to manufacturers to start releasing phones with this new version of Android.

The jump Android 6.0 (Marshmallow) to Android 7.0 has arrived and includes better management of RAM, faster and faster configuration.

How could it be otherwise, let's start with Google's own devices, which are to come before updating them and enjoy life more in terms of support is concerned. From here, the only painful surprise that we highlight is the absence in the list of Nexus 5, an icon in the Android ecosystem stops receiving update.
