Google has officially given its upcoming Android OS a new name, and it is called Android Nougat.


Android 7.0 Nougat, is the latest offering from Google and it is available today in beta and developer preview 4. The new OS brings with it tons of new features and tweaks to the already-popular Android 6.0 Marshmallow.

When will you be able to download the latest software on your device? Well that all depends on Google’s beta phase and how long it goes on for. Currently we can expect the new OS to start rolling out in August 2016, as the bugs and issues are ironed out of the beta build and polished for the public release. It also all depends on what device you have as Android Nougat will need to be reworked for each carrier and manufacturer.

In Android Nougat you can expect new features like multi-window support, Google VR, new notification systems, a new improved UI, smoother responses, battery saver modes and, of course, new improved stability across the board. Android Nougat will also be releasing with Unicode 9, which we already know comes with the 72 brand new emojis.

We are happy that Google finally let the cat out of the bag with its latest Android OS. Every Android user around the world has been wondering what will be coming out of the software giant’s labs for months now, and most important of all, what the “N” stood for.
