Developers: Which new Android N features are you planning to use?

42

Android N has some great new features — which ones are you working with?

Android 7.0 is coming. Whether it hits soon, as rumors suggest, or we have to wait until September when LG releases the V20, it will be here soon. And that means a lot of work and energy drinks for the people getting their Android apps ready for the big changes.

While we don't have many visual or design changes with Android N, the changes done under-the-hood are pretty major. This is possibly the biggest Android update since Froyo, with a focus on streamlining everything from the development process to the user experience — all with security features in mind. Of course, that means to offer the best user experience from your app you'll have to spend the time to integrate some of the new features. Fun times.

Whether you're working with a media app and using Picture-in-Picture or Live TV Recording (please, my credit card is ready) or getting ready to offer your users the best damn notifications on the planet, we're interested in what you're doing! Take a minute to hit the poll so we (and everyone — Android is all about the apps) know what to expect.

Which new Android N features are you planning to use?

Android 7.0 Nougat

Note 7 vs iPhone 6s plus

The latest pairing in an age-old rivalry: Our first impressions of two phones a world apart.

It's been a while since you could reasonably say Samsung was straight up copying Apple in its smartphone designs. In the market of 2016, the two camps are very clearly differentiated: Samsung with its glass-backed designs, curved panels, super-slim bezels, big batteries and wireless charging. And Apple arguably doing more with less: shipping super-slim metal handsets with its own tightly controlled hardware and software, where performance and ease of use is king.
