Google VP reveals Android N release date

12

Google has done something unusual a few months ago: it unveiled the upcoming Android N version months ahead of Google I/O in order to give developers and partners more time to work on applications and updates.

At Google I/O 2016, the company unveiled a few additional interesting details about the new features coming to Android N and it finally updated us on the release date of the newest version of the platform.

Google VP of engineering Dave Burke went on stage to confirm that the Android N release date timeframe is 'later this summer', which is a bit earlier than in previous years. Currently, you can get a beta quality developer preview of Android N via an OTA on your Nexus phone.

You can learn all about the new features in Android N from the 15-minute presentation of Dave Burke at IO right below. It starts around the 1:04:17 mark, and you can hear the details about the release date at 1:20:04.
