Google on Wednesday at its I/O conference revealed upcoming enhancements to Android N, a lot of which have been protected in Android N Developer Preview three. The agency during the keynote showed that the Android N will deliver ‘Seamless Updates’, a characteristic borrowed from Chrome OS. We now understand that feature can be constrained to the following-era Nexus devices, however.
Android Police has learned that Android N’s new Seamless replace function has some technical requirements, because of this older technology Nexus gadgets can’t guide the function. It remains to be seen if OEMs implement the necessities in their upcoming gadgets.
Dave Burke, vp of Engineering, at the keynote on Wednesday had explained the new ‘Seamless replace’, “the following time a consumer powers up their tool, new gadgets can routinely and seamlessly switch into the brand new updated system image.”
within the case of ‘Seamless Updates’ case, the gadget updates normally come within the form of deltas because of this only the elements of the system that modified are downloaded to a backup boot partition. On restart, the backup partition becomes the number one. In case there may be a problem with the replace, users can revert the system to use the preceding partition.
which means we must watch for the brand new Nexus gadgets to look how the ‘Seamless’ update’ function works on mobile gadgets running Android N.
At I/O, Google also launched the Android N Developer Preview 3 which was claimed by way of Google to be the first beta-first-rate candidate as a way to be suitable to test on a consumer’s primary phone or tablet.
some of the productivity features brought in Android N consist of short-switching among apps for clean multi-tasking, multi-window guide, and higher notifications. one of the primary highlights of the keynote was the creation of “Assistant,” that’s an upcoming enlargement of Google’s search tools.
