Android Nougat release date: when you’ll get it and why you’ll want it
Android Nougat: release date, news and rumors
Update: The Android Nougat release date is happening in August, according to the latest news reports. It’s already out with Developer Preview 5, and we’ve tested it. Here are the feature in the beta.
Android Nougat is Google’s next phone and tablet operating system update that’s been so thoroughly refined that the company is officially more than halfway through the English alphabet, letter 14 of 26.
You can now download Android Nougat Developer Preview and test its new features that didn’t make the cut in last November’s Android 6.0 Marshmallow launch alongside the Nexus 6P and Nexus 5X.
Here’s how to install it on your compatible device
First, Samsung mistakenly hinted at the Android 7 number. Within its source code for its MultiWindow SDK 1.3.1. It reads “This version has been released with Android N (7.0) compatibility.”
Google didn’t confirm this at Google IO, it did finally unveil the version number with one simple sentence on its YouTube video: “On June 30th, 2016 we unwrapped our latest treat, Android 7.0 Nougat.”
This confirms our suspicions, but it’s clear that, more than ever, Google is to be steering more toward the sweeter name, Android Nougat, and away from version numbers
