Google Nexus 7 2016 Release Date Still Not Confirmed? Android 7.0 Nougat Release Date, Features Revealed!By Vinay Patel, UniversityHerald Reporter
Optimistic Android fans have not ceased hoping that the purported Nexus 7 2016 tablet will make an appearance soon. The anticipation stems from a slew of reports doing rounds online, hinting that Android 7.0 Nougat will start rolling out August 22 and most likely with it, the two Stock Android smartphones made by Google in collaboration with HTC.
Google usually takes the wraps off the next Nexus and new Android version simultaneously. If the company follows its release pattern, such an event might be in the offing as early as next week.
The much-lauded sequel to Android Marshmallow is likely to commence its worldwide deployment with Android device users slated to get a first-hand experience of the latest Google mobile OS, 9To5Google reported.
Its no secret that Nexus devices - specifically the LG Nexus 5X and Huawei Nexus 6P on Canadian telco Telus - will be the first to feast upon the much-awaited Android Nougat OS.
A software update schedule for Canadian carrier Telus, hints Monday, August 22 as the exact date when the Nexus 5X and 6P will receive Android Nougat. The scheduling seems to make sense considering the final Developer Preview of Android Nougat was already unveiled in late July.
The Android Nougat release will be preceded by Google's security update routine, which came about in the first week of the month, paving the way for the latest Android operating system's glorious arrival.
Although the report did not divulge any sort of details for the Nexus phones, Android watchers believe that the devices will unbox soon, possibly in the next few days right after the Nougat jump of both the Nexus 5X and 6P.
Another report suggests that the sequel to the Nexus 2015 will scrap the Nexus branding. They are likely to be dubbed as Google phones; sporting a G logo imprinted on the back plate of the device.
Android 7.0 Noughat is expected to boast an array of awe-inspiring features and refinements, each one further enhancing the overall Android experience. In addition to some expected changes such as bundled notifications, the upcoming OS will reportedly boast a slew of less visible changes including a new multitasking shortcut, GreenBot reported.
Daydreams Becomes Screen Savers
While Google repurposed Daydream as the brand for its VR platform, the company needed a new name for the previous Daydream features. The new name is Screen Saver, which seems to make more sense as compared to Daydream in its previous incarnation. Android screen savers will continue working in the same fashion they have until now.
With this feature, users can simply double-tap the recent apps button to switch between two most recently used apps.
Using Two Apps Simultaneously
Google's latest operating system is said to support multi-window feature for all Android devices running Android 7.0. This would be similar to using apps in a split-screen mode on Samsung devices.
Access Two Chrome Tabs
Aside from introducing multi-window to Android, users will now be able to access Chrome in multi-window mode.
Drag, Drop Text And Images In Multi-Window Mode
While using two apps simultaneously, you can drag-and-drop text between the two windows. The same goes for sharing images between two apps.
In addition to the aforementioned features, Android 7.0 Nougat is said to boast a slew of power-packed elements.
