You are already familiar with naming of Google’s home grown operating system and one by one all are coming every year.
The most important and interesting thing is about the naming of upcoming operating system. speculations will simmer around us until the name of N won’t be announced by Google. But there are possibilities over the name and it is that Nutella and Nougat might emerge as a name of new operating system.
We are hoping that this year its name could be announced before launching any next Nexus handset.
Some words on behalf of Google CEO, Sunder Pichai indicate that Google also don’t know about the name of Android N. In December, 2015 at a seminar Pichai had said that its name should be decided by the fans rather than Google.
For this he was asked a question, why would Android N not be naming coming from any Indians desert. He commented, I will ask my mother.
If Android N is named on any Indian desert then either Neyyappam (South Indian desert) or Nankhatai will suit it. But these names are perfect for Indians not for world that’s why these names perhaps will not be preferred for it.
Android Marshmallow successor of Android Lollipop has been upgraded in many handsets and its functioning is extraordinary. Android N will be successor of Android Marshmallow.
Many phones are still using Lollipop version and this will be carried out by the end of 2016 it means Marshmallow will also simmers around us by 2017 and similarly Android N by 2018.
Google’s 10th I/O event will take place on 18 May, 2016 and with this event mobile operating system which is under the codename ‘Android N’ will be introduced to the world.
Currently Pixel C is released and it runs Android Marshmallow. Split screen and multi-window support is introduced with this tablet. Pixel C team hinted that Google will carry out with Android N as well.
It’s chance for you to decide your own name for Android N
In December, 2015 at a seminar, Pichai had said that its name should be decided by the fans rather than Google. He said online polling will be opened for getting suggestions over the naming of Android N. The search giant might involve users to reap the perfect name.
For this he was asked a question, why would Android N not naming be coming from any Indians desert? He commented, I will ask my mother.
If Android N is named after any Indian desert then either Neyyappam (South Indian desert) or Nankhatai will suit it. But these names are perfect for Indians not for world that’s why these names perhaps will not be preferred for it.
This time you are allowed to decide a perfect name for Android N, so think and send it online. I hope your name could be selected for it.
How will you feel if your own decide name is selected for an operating system? You might become a star for the world, if you get selected for it.
Expected Features of Android N
Double Tap to unlock screen
It is being expected that besides from any side button lacking opener, double tapping on the screen will open the screen lock.
Multi Window and Split screen
Multi window support was introduced through Android Marshmallow and this will also be carried out through Android N. Android team is working to enable the upcoming software with split screen feature. When any software possesses this feature that gives an option to user to work even in some part of the screen and screen can be become either horizontal or vertical.
What is multi Window support?
Multi window viewing is the ability of any software of providing the option for multitasking.
Multi window lets to work on the single screen with multi tasks. For example, during watching a video you can take notes, or go to the web for using internet simultaneously. This is the best support for any phone because it is indeed for us.
Multi window multitasking ability is found in many Samsung’s devices, where you have to select some apps to keep them in multitasking tray. Android team is in progress for big improvement in this native support and they have a hope that their wish will soon be achieved.
iPads based on iOS 9 operating system is already capable to display multi window performing ability and Samsung Galaxy S6 has also little feature of split screen.
Mixture of Android OS and Chrome OS
It is being said that upcoming version of android operating system will be developed with the combination of Android OS and Chrome OS. And for this Google team is working round the clock.
Android is the world’s most usable operating system powering more than one billion devices, the chrome OS account for less than 3% of PCs. This can be a major reason why company may be looking to integrate these two.
Granular App Permissions to Android N
Granular app permissions control was introduced with Android M and this permission will also be seen in Android N.
Granular app permissions control is just the key which will be controlled by you. Before, when we used to install any application it didn’t allow us to do anything (i.e. what has to be allowed or denied in that app), it means it was out of control and we had to compromise with it.
Now, when you download an app and install it, you will be asked what you want to allow or deny in the entire functioning of that app, which you downloaded. But Android N will have modified ability to control an app.
By virtue of this control, users will be able to allow or deny the app access to six different permissions, which are:
Its Messaging will be based on RCS
Google is working to erase the SMS/MMS functionality in Google Hangouts entirely and instead focus on a new messaging app that could rival iMessage and WhatsApp. RCS is tipped for this.
Rich communications services (RCS) is the platform that enables the delivery of communication experiences beyond voice and SMS, providing consumers with instant messaging or chat, live video and file sharing- across devices, on any network.
Default Applications Linking
Android Marshmallow includes the ability to link an app for a specific function, which allows you to any application as a default application for any function.
Android N will include some advance feature of this this mode, which will ensure more and more functions to do with a particular app.
Setting an app as a default means you are allowed to do some specific functions with and only that app which is set by you. It means you will not have to choose an application again and again for the same work.
We must wait for few months to get a concrete wall of leaks and rumors about the newer version of android operating system.
