Every-time Android appears in a new appeal with its brand new updates. From Donut(1.6) to Nougat(7.0) (newly released), it has been a glorious journey. In recent times, a few significant changes has been done in Android Lollipop(5.0), Marshmallow(6.0) and Android Nougat (7.0). Android has always tried to make the user experience better and simpler.
In this info-graphic comparison of Nougat vs Marshmallow vs Lollipop, we have focused on the major changes that are made in these updates and some unique features that make every version a special one. After a thorough research by our android geeks at ValueCoders we found some very interesting facts. Let’s see how these three versions differ from each other:
Wait!! ………. There’s More
Android Nougat had some other major updates before final release. Apart from the above features, some exiting ones are also on the bay:
Enhanced ‘Doze’ mode in Android Nougat
The energy saving mode ‘Doze’ is improved in Android Nougat. Earlier, it used to work when the phone is in undisturbed( when you are sleeping). Now it will also work when the screen is turned off.
Reply to messages from the ‘notifications bar’
With Android Nougat, users can reply to messages from the notification bar itself. With this, the user will not need to unlock their phone or even leave an app to reply to a message, hence, more convenient.
Menu between system settings
A hamburger menu button (icon with three lines) has now been added into the system settings. When a user is in the Storage menu, for example, he can quickly jump to the other system options using this hamburger menu.
Android Nougat released today. However, this update is for some selected devices and soon we are expecting the same for other devices too.
Showing system memory differently
Now in Android Nougat (7.1), you can see how much system memory is being used. This is shown below the display total space consumed by you. You can see this by tapping ‘storage’ in the settings option.
Lock screen wallpaper
After a long wait, Google has finally launched lock screen wallpaper in the Nougat version. Here’s how it looks like:
Cancel button for app downloads
In nougat, now you can cancel apps download or update from it’s shortcut cancel button.
