What is your favorite major new Android N feature?

What is your favorite major new Android N feature?
Google took us all by surprise by unleashing a preview version of its next Android 7.0 iteration, dubbed N, to unsuspecting developers, or anybody with a fairly modern Nexus gear, to be precise. While at first look the changes from Marshmallow to Android N sounded minor, save for the system level dual window mode, when digging deeper we discovered tons of new features and improvements.

These range from relatively obscure changes, like new options for the still-hidden file browser, to pretty visible ones, like grouping notifications by app in the status bar, or adding a bunch of toggles in the quick settings shade. Google also gives us the ability to swap apps simply by double-tapping the overview button, or to copy and paste freely between two open windows. 

Granted, most of these features are borrowed from existing manufacturer overlays or custom ROM efforts, but having them integrated on a system level is a whole different ballgame. That is why we wanted to ask you which of the major new features that come with Android N is the one you are most excited about. Take your pick in the poll below, and sound off in the comments if anything minor grabbed your attention, too.
