Android N Makes Some Great Changes to Google's Smartphone OS

By Gizmodo Australia on at

Google’s Android operating system gets regular updates, and those updates are usually no surprise. Split-screen multi-tasking, for example, has been a long time coming. That’s why it’s nice to see exactly that, along with some welcome overhauls to the notifications panel and the settings menu, in the developer previews now hitting hardcore users’ Nexus smartphones before general release.

Everybody’s favourite YouTube tech guy Marques Brownlee, or MKBHD — seriously, go follow him right now — has a great run-through of his five favourite features that have been added in the Android N Developer Preview, which unexpectedly dropped after some early images of it leaked. His videos are always super crispy, and this one’s no different — make sure you watch it full-screen in 1080p. [YouTube]
