Google has finally revealed official name of Android N, and it is called “Android Nougat”. There were rumors that Android N will be called ‘Nutella’, even the tech giant poked people with this suggestion. In Google I/O, the company also launched a website asking for suggestions for the name of Android N from people across the globe. They even setup a naming format so that people could come up with names according to that format. Google didn’t wait for Google I/O 2016 to reveal the name, because this will give time to developers to improve the Android update.
The new Android version has new features like upgraded notification center which makes user interaction easier, and better actionable notifications and expeditious options to reply from the lock screen and more control of notification priority. In this update for the first time you’ll be able to launch two applications simultaneously on one screen. The settings menu has been given new and improved form, which makes it easier to go back to the main setting screen.

Android Nougat Beta is compatible with- Nexus 6, Nexus 9, Nexus 5X, Nexus 6P, Nexus Player, Pixel C, General Mobile 4G (Android One).
