Android Nougat was released OTA for Nexus devices a few weeks back. There is another device lineup by Google, called Android One. Android One project was announced a couple of years back to make smartphones more affordable. They were just like Nexus but with lower specifications and lower price.
Google promised that Android One devices will receive software updates just like Nexus devices directly from Google and the company kept its promise. The Android 7.0 Nougat is now available for the One lineup around the world. It is available OTA. The update is around 700 MB in size and it will bring all the new features the Nougat introduced along with the software version 7.0.
Some of the Android Nougat features are:
- Doze on the go, which will further improve the battery performance when the screen is off. In Marshmallow, Doze only worked when the device was idle and the screen is off.
- Nougat also introduced split screen multitasking. which means you can operate different apps at once now.
- The notification bar is redesigned.
- “Android is upgrading” screen is gone forever. You won’t see this screen again after upgrading to Android 7.0 Nougat.
- The new OS updates will happen quietly in the background. They will automatically download and install. You’ll just need a quick reboot afterwards.
- Support added for Vulkan API.
You’ll get these features once you upgrade your Android One device to Android 7.0 Nougat. Leave us comments about your experience with Android Nougat if you have an Android One device.
