#AndroidN #AndroidMarshmallow – 7 Reasons You’ll Want to Upgrade to Android Nougat : Android’s latest update is upon us, but while you might be interested in Android 7.0 Nougat, there’s a good chance that you’re pretty happy with Android 6.0 Marshmallow. So why would you want to upgrade?
Well, mainly there are interface tweaks that keep Android looking fresh (some of which can be installed on Marshmallow). And then there’s everything else — a list of improvements so long you’d be here all day reading about them.
If you’re familiar with Android already, one of the things you’ll notice about Android Nougat’s new features is that many of them aren’t all that new. In fact, most can be traced back to Samsung and Sony phones from the past few years.
To make it easier on your eyes, and to celebrate Android 7.0’s release, we’ve grouped the new features into seven categories, each giving you a strong reason to upgrade.
1. Improved Notification Area
Notifications are all-important, but for many users they can be a pain. Android Nougat does a good job of fixing this by introducing some revisions to the notification area.
The ability to quick reply to message notifications is probably the most notable change. This is such a simple idea that it’s a surprise stock Android hasn’t introduced it sooner. All you need to do is tap the Reply link and send your message directly from whatever screen you’re on, rather than going into the app.
Notifications also have individual quick settings, which you can access by long-tapping or swiping slightly to reveal the gear icon. Here, you can specify priorities for your apps, which will prove useful for determining what sort of notifications appear and whether or not they appear on the lock screen.
