These are the best Android 7 Nougat features according to Google engineers
New Doze battery life improvements in Android N get the Android engineering team pumped upAnwarGhuloum (Engineering Director for Android Core Platform): "I’m pretty excited about a bunch of the under the hood improvements we’ve made: JIT, OTA speed, and some big kernel scheduler changes. It’s something no user will see, but hopefully they’ll notice:) In general, I’d like to see us do more with upstream Linux to optimize for mobile."
DianneHackborn (Manager of the Android framework team): "Doze light in N, and the background restrictions coming in the future. Now that we have bitten the bullet with Doze in N to taking a firmer hand it what applications can do, there are a number of opportunities we have to improve the overall platform behavior."
ChetHaase (Lead/Manager of the UI Toolkit team): "I love some of the usability features we’ve added in the last few releases, from fingerprint (turning on and unlocking my phone as I take it out of my pocket) to Quick Settings (fast access to things I commonly need to toggle) to the recent apps double-tap (takes you to the previous activity, like Alt-Tab for Android). Under the hood, I love the continuous work we’re doing on performance, always working on making things faster and smoother."
Wale Ogunwale (Technical Lead Manager for ActivityManager & WindowManager): "Multi-Window obviously ;) This a feature the community has been asking for awhile now and I glad we finally made it happen!"
Paul Eastham (Engineering Director for systems software and battery life): "The new Doze work in N is looking like it will be a big win for batteries everywhere — early data from testers looks good, and that gets me excited! I think the “Seamless Updates” feature will have a lot of fans too."
