Google surprisingly announces the Developer Preview of Android N. The N Developer Preview includes an updated SDK with system images for testing on the official Android emulator and on Nexus 6, Nexus 5X, Nexus 6P, Nexus Player, Nexus 9, and Pixel C devices. This initial preview release is for developers only and not intended for daily use or consumer use.
Google Releases Android N Developer Preview
Here are a few APIs and features of the Android N Developer Preview
Multi-window:The feature will allow developers to set a minimum allowable dimensions and add support for multi-window, allowing Android phones and tablets to run apps side by side.
Direct reply notifications: Using the “RemoteInput“ API enables users to reply to incoming message notifications quickly and conveniently, without leaving the notification shade.
Bundled notifications: With N, you can group notifications from the same app together – for example individual messages from a messaging app.
It is expected that Android N’s final release version will be out in the summers but no specific date has been announced yet.
