Andoid Nougat Google's Latest Android OS

Google this and Google that,
Google pins and Google Hat
Google the horse jumped and the cat sat
I love to Google a lot.

Well, if you find my omen to Google corny well sup it up. But I am just excited about getting the new Android Operating System (Android Nougat) on my Tablet and smartphone. Yes, Google has done it again, not surprised though, have gone through a next sweet tooth naming of "our" new Android OS, Nougat. Incase you don't have a clue or cue at what a Nougat is, let me explain. According to my good friend Mr. Wikipedia, Nougat is a family of confections made with sugar or honey, roasted nuts (almonds, walnuts, pistachios, hazelnuts, and macadamia nuts are common), whipped egg whites, and sometimes chopped candied fruit. The consistency of nougat is chewy, and it is used in a variety of candy bars and chocolates. The word nougat comes from Occitan pan nogat (pronounced [ˈpa nuˈɣat]), seemingly from Latin panis nucatus 'nut bread' (the late colloquial Latin adjective nucatum means 'nutted' or 'nutty'). So someone in the LaLa land of Google clearly has a sweet tooth. But aside from the sweet Nougat, there is the Android Nougat, and that is really what this discussion is all about.

Tablets and Smartphones will soon get the roll out of this classy android OS available for download and install. If you want to know if Nougat is ready for your brand or model android device, you can simply go to the manufactures website and check your gadget model for any available updates. If you see Android Nougat available, well cheers and cheerios to you. You can update you device to the sweet Android OS Nougat.


OK, so here I am making a scene over a Operating System you don't have yet and have no idea what the hullabaloo is, well let's take a look at this Android 7 operating system and see what's revving under the hood.

Quicker multi-tasking
You can now double-tap the recent apps button to quickly switch between your two most recently used apps. For example, say you’re in Gmail but need to look something up in Chrome to include in an email. You can open Chrome, find and copy a link, then double-tap the recent apps button and your device will switch back to Gmail.


Use two apps at same time
Samsung users have long had access to using apps in a split-screen mode. With Nougat, Google is officially adding support for multi-window support to all Android devices running Android 7.0. To activate multi-window mode, long-press on the recent apps button. Whichever app you’re currently using will go to the top of the screen (on a phone, or to the left on a tablet), with a list of recent apps shown along the bottom. Select the second app you want to use from the list. Drag the divider to resize the app windows, or to maximize either of the active apps.


View two Chrome tabs
It took Apple an entire year to introduce split-screen tab viewing in Safari for iPad users, but Google did it at the same time it introduced multi-window to Android. When using Chrome in multi-window mode, tap on the Menu button and select they super handy option of “Move to other window.” It’s fully acceptable to point and laugh at iOS users if you feel the need.

Drag and drop text, images when in multi-window mode, When using two apps at the same time, you can drag-and-drop text between the two windows. Highlight the text, then long-press on it until the text begins to float. Drag it to a text field in another window, and let go. The same goes for sharing images between two apps, assuming they’ve been updated for the latest of Google’s wares. Magical, right?

There are tonnes more new features which will be bundled in the android OS 7, giving them away will just spoil the surprises right? So what are you waiting for, go see if a update is available for your device.

Finally, the lock screen gets a wallpaper of its own
It only took way too many years, but the day has finally come: You can now set a wallpaper specific to your home screen, and a different one for your lock screen. The process to accomplish the once unthinkable feat hasn’t changed much—after selecting an image to set as a wallpaper, you’re shown a new prompt to select where the image will live.
