New Delhi: Technology giant Google will start rolling the latest version of Android operating system Android Nougat –something that has been on beta for quite some time.
Google, in its Android blog said that Android 7.0 Nougat will begin rolling out to users, starting with Nexus devices. “At the same time, we’re pushing the Android 7.0 source code to the Android Open Source Project (AOSP), extending public availability of this new version of Android to the broader ecosystem,” it wrote.
Android Nougat will be rolled out over the next several weeks. The Nexus 6, Nexus 5X, Nexus 6P, Nexus 9, Nexus Player, Pixel C, and General Mobile 4G (Android One) will get an over-the-air software update to Android 7.0 Nougat.
Devices enrolled in the Android Beta Program will also receive this final version.
“With all of these new devices beginning to run Nougat, now is the time to publish your app updates to Google Play. We recommend compiling against, and ideally targeting, API 24,” Google said.
Google's latest OS brings new features like an improved notification shade and split-screen multitasking to the mobile OS, while also improving on features like Doze that came with Marshmallow last year.
