Google releases early developer preview version of Android N

Tech giant Google last week announced the rollout of an early developer preview of the forthcoming new version of its Android mobile operating system --- Android N. The launch of the final release build of the new Android N version is expected in the third quarter of 2016.

The upcoming Android N OS will come with a number of new features and enhancements over the current Android version - Android Marshmallow. Some of the new features and functions of Android N are part of the early developer preview of the new software.

According to Phone Arena, one of the most significant highlights of the Android N version is the Project Svelte -- a project by Google engineers to bring improved performance optimizations to the new software. The Android N OS will increase the efficiency of apps in performing background tasks, so that the device's hardware is not strained excessively and battery is conserved.

In addition, Android N will also come with support for the Android TV recording feature, to enable users to record as well as save multiple files in the storage of their devices.

The Android N version will also unfold the advantage of number blocking, to allow carriers as system-built apps to permanently block a set of numbers for the device. The new software will also enable users to customize the pull down quick settings button, so that they can have only their preferred setting tiles on their devices.
