Following Android Alpha and Android Beta, Google has always named its Android OS updates after sweet treats, and in alphabetical order. So far we’ve had Cupcake, Donut, Eclair, Froyo, Gingerbread, Honeycomb, Ice Cream Sandwich, Jelly Bean, KitKat, Lollipop and Marshmallow. In 2016 we have Nougat.

Google recently rolled out the Nougat update or better known as Android N and we decided to jot down all we know about it.

Hands on the Nougat 7.0 for about two weeks now, one thing we noticed is that it reduced any software lags that we were facing earlier in the Marshmallow and Google revamped the Notification bar a little bit.

  • Direct Reply Notifications
  • New Quick Settings Menu
  • Bundled Notifications

What’s coming in Android Nougat 7.1?

It may seem like non-Pixel users are getting the short end of the stick — particularly with the lack of Assistant-integration. Still, there are quite a few new features you’ll be able to access in the upcoming version update.

  • App Shortcuts
  • Night Light (Reduces the blue tints off the screen, to reduce bedtime radiations)
  • Improved Touch
  • Fingerprint Gestures
  • Personal Assistant (Only for Pixel and Pixel XL)

Nexus users always have an edge over other android users, y’all know why. Because Google! The 7.1 is long awaited now.
