Android 7: instructions, useful features and recommendations

Android 7.0 Nougat today can be called the most ambitious version of this platform. This distribution really brings many significant improvements and improvements over 6.0, and also provides many important changes in usability. What's new in Android 7 presented to users?

Major Changes

The most significant changes include launch shortcuts that allow you to access a quick pair of actions with a long press, such as making videos or taking selfies in a camera application without having to launch the entire service. Instead of five, there are now six quick switchings in the notification list, and if you hold the power button, the restart option appears in the shutdown menu. Instructions for the Android 7 can be summarized as follows. In the "Settings" menu there are new tabs that replicate all the options found in the device. In addition, the sub-item “Support” has been added, intended to receive assistance around the clock. Some changes were also made to the general settings, including the smart storage manager with automatic and manual cleaning options. The “Move” section has appeared, which contains various gestures and motion detection functions. GIF support is also available in the Google Keyboard.

Overview of the Operating System Android 7.0 in a Nutshell

If you try to briefly describe Android Nougat, then we can say that this is a mobile platform, deeply rooted. The feeling of stability of this OS is becoming increasingly strong starting from 5.0 Lollipop. So, in version 5, you can observe much less performance problems and more attention is paid to appearance. Nougat 7.0, in turn, is distinguished by the expansion of functionality, improvement of existing functions and a further increase in the capabilities of Android. It is worth noting that Android 6.0 Marshmallow basically supported the overall look of 5.0 Lollipop, but received some new features, such as DozeMode, Games, API fingerprint scanner and granular resolutions. Only a year has passed, and version 7 appeared, which supports the design of the main screen and applications from the previous 6th distribution, but at the same time lays a fundamental basis for all the functionality.

Screen Mode

First of all, the instruction to the Android 7 is relevant for the new display settings. Nougat provides split-screen mode for Android. The split-screen works in both portrait and landscape modes, with two windows being changed and adjusted only in portrait mode. Application developers can set their own minimum window size and aspect ratio, but a 50/50 standard will be displayed in the landscape display. The split screen mode can be activated by clicking the “Application Overview” button and selecting “Recent”. You can also turn it on by tapping the shortcut in the application selection panel and dragging it to the top of the screen. You can even activate the gesture action so that it starts when you scroll up the browse button.

Multilingual Support and Wallpapers

The useful features of Android 7.0 have also affected language support. Now Nougat allows you to install several local languages, as well as the primary and secondary languages, and easily switch between them. This is a huge advantage for bilingual Android users and frequent travelers. Various skins, kindly provided by iPhoneTsu will allow you to set any image as both desktop wallpapers, cool images and screen savers to lock the screen and do not worry that the service is in Japanese - everything is intuitive. It is possible to place the same image in both settings.

Platform Optimization

The review of Android 7.0 Nougat confirms that the system is not just complicated in comparison with previous versions. A lot of work was aimed at accelerating the development of the platform. The developers have made great changes: from Chrome optimization to the advent of GoogleFiber and the Wing drone delivery project. The settings menu is reconfigured in Android 7.0, with two major changes being the addition of a multi-layer menu on the left and the availability of detailed information under each heading in the settings section. The first of them is already familiar to users: this is the same mechanism with which you used to access Google Now and navigation search in many Google Api and services. Although you can access it at any time, as soon as you get to the “Settings” submenu, you will now see a new icon in the upper left corner, which replaces the “Back” button. Click on it (or slide your finger along the left edge), and you can immediately go to any other part of the settings menu without pressing the back arrow again. Even if you don’t see this icon, for example, in the Wi-Fi advanced options section or on the main page, you can still swipe your finger to the left. This is a convenient “quick exit” feature, even if it is unlikely to be used frequently.

Changes in Recent Applications

The recent apps menu has also been slightly modified in Android 7.0. The Android system itself can now remove long-unused services from the list. A convenient “Clear All” button is added to the very top of the map stack so that you can clear the clutter and inform the system that it can close any associated application processes.
