Android “Nougat” (Android N) is the seventh major version of the Android OS. Initially released as alpha test version on March 9, 2016. Nougat had been officially released on August 22, 2016, with Nexus devices. Nexus devices are the first to receive the Nougat update. The LG V20 was the first smartphone released with nougat.
Nougat comes with many cool features. Most of them are known to everyone, but Nougat also provides some hidden features that few users knew. In this post, we enlight some Cool hidden features of the Android Nougat.
Nougat currently permits you to modify back and forth between the 2 most recent apps by double tapping the recent app button. It also works in split-screen or full-app mode. This trick is very useful for the users who use muti-apps at a time.
Split-screen works in portrait and landscape modes. once you have one app open, you’ll simultaneously access another app by long-pressing the recent apps button (the very little square one) to prompt a carousel of apps on the side. (You’ll notice that when you enter split-screen mode, the recent apps button transforms into a brand new hamburger icon.) you’ve got some restricted ability to size windows (but only in portrait mode?). you’ll exit spit-screen by dragging the barrier all the thanks to one side or long-pressing on the recent apps button.
Nougat offers you the power to simply access app-notification preferences by long-pressing on a specific notification. Long pressing slightly pushing it to the side to reveal a gear icon. This small trick even works on the lock screen.
The last 2 android OSes have boasted hidden Flappy Bird games with either marshmallow or Lollipop themes. it absolutely was super hard. However, nougat changes it up with some reasonably weird cat game. Okay, this one’s slightly difficult, thus here’s what you do:
Do you bored of font size that your mobile provides? Or want a bigger size. This hidden feature could help you.
You can modify the “display” size on your device to bigger all the text and icons. Access this feature via Display > Display size to settle on between 5 completely different settings.
It’s easy to access: Long-press on the home screen to alter the wallpaper image and once you decide on that wallpaper you would like, you will find a screen asking if you need to form that wallpaper for your home screen, lock screen, or both.
Want quick access to the setting of your choice through the notification?
Once you pull down the notification shade, you can find quick settings here. But sometimes you want more settings or fewer settings. Nougat allows you to customize the notification panel as you want. Till now it provides a limited setting shortcut.
To do so, click on edit at the bottom of notification shade. Now you are in edit mode. Drag and drop to add and arrange your settings.
Although android N provides many cool features, there is still some cool hidden features. These features can make your mobile experience to next level. You can fastly switch between two apps using Quick Switch. Also work on two apps instantly with split screen. Make your notification bar as per your requirement.
