Google decided to surprise all of us by dropping the newest version of Android: Android N to the developer today!
So, Google out of the blue surprised the developer by releasing the Android N update. The way you can get your hands on Android N is by going the developer website and installing the update on any of your Nexus Device.
New Features: An Overview
The first thing we noticed out of the box was the new multitasking view. The multitasking view is redesigned a little bit, you can notice at a glance that the app cards are big – covering the whole screen. The cards are so big that all you can see is 1 app at a time on the screen.
The spotlight of this update seems to be the split screen multitasking developed right into Android N. Yes! Finally, Google decided to borrow Samsung’s best feature and embed it right into stock Android.
The split screen multitasking looks and feels like a much cleaner and polished version of that of Samsung’s version. I also work seamlessly in both portrait and landscape view.
You can now flip between your current and previous app simply by double-tapping the overview button. At the top of each card is a countdown progress bar that will automatically maximize the current app in about a second unless you keep hitting the button
