Of all those characteristics that we have known in the last few hours, there are a number of them that are the most important and that they can have a real effect in your day to day with your smartphone. Surely we will see some disappear in following previous, while will integrate new ones.

One of the most important features of Android N were rich notifications, and already you get used to them every day to use them, by allowing more information in a space tend to go every few minutes.
Notifications of Android or channels notices grouped by their type. The user may select notifications in the status bar shown to “turn off” which does not want to and let look interest that.
To be clear, you can a new way to control notifications rich Android brought in Nougat.
System ‘ Background limits’
If notifications are one of the biggest proposed by Google with Android or, work performed background is another aspect to be highlighted, as well improve the autonomy of a terminal.
The real objective of this system is to make it easier to develop an app in Android do not make one major impact on the battery life of the device. To summarize it, Android sets certain standards for those moments in which apps become a first or a second level and continue to function perfectly.
They will be services in the background, updates location and data links, the areas in which Google has made various optimizations.
One of those Visual changes that we both like and that will bring the great Google Pixel launcher G, Adaptive icons. This is where Android It will offer support to this type of icons natively.
It is the way of establish a standard in the form of all the icons and thus have a uniform design when placed in the different screens of the mobile desk.
Éstos they may be used in the launcher, shortcuts, device, sharing window and the general view of the app screen settings.
The importance of connectivity in Android or

Native support for themes
Finally, Android incorporates the themes support after years, in which both the custom ROMs and the manufacturers own layers worth of them for which users they could “dress” your phone as they please.
It must be clarified that these feature may be one of them that they do not see in the final version and it postponed its implementation for what would be Android P.
The settings section completely renewed
One of the things that most likes to do to Google each of the older Android versions, is to “tweak” the interface of the system settings.
Another way of reorganizing all the categories in the settings for optimize the user experience and easier to dive for the large number of parameters that have Android.
Peculiar details of Android or
You can postpone individual notifications for a particular stretch of time. This option will be available when you deslices notification to one side a little.
Another detail to consider is the possibility to automatically fill in the fields on a form to do not waste time in typing. Today it is available, but was rather a “hack”.
We can not forget either the fonts to a full type support, a greater coverage to the color of apps, improvements in WebView and optimizations to the runtime and APIs of Java 8.
Navigation with keyboard
This function is to give support to the keyboard in the Chromebooks in which you can install apps from the Google Play Store. Android or what brings is a best model for navigation keys and tab.
Extra bonus: the official wallpaper of Android or
As in all major upgrades, Google us gives different official wallpapers they have great quality and ample elegance. This time we have one that shows our planet in a simply spectacular view.
