Yamawindi

Yamawindi, noma side-by-side ukweseka uqhekeko screen, enye big kwalokho entsha obusebenzayo. Kunezindlela ezintathu ukuze uyisebenzise kukhona. Ngokucindezela bese ubambe okuthiwa inkinobho Uhlolojikelele ngohlelo lokusebenza olulodwa esikrinini yakha osanda uhlu zokusebenza nokubuka okuhlukene-screen ukuze ukhethe uhlelo lokusebenza yesibili ukubeka on screen. Ungase futhi ukwenze lokho esanda esetshenziswa uhlu zokusebenza by taping futhi ubambe omunye zokusebenza ohlwini bese ehudula kuya phezulu kwesikrini noma esinxeleni noma kwesokudla isandla ezinhlangothini uma landscape, allowing you to pick the other app from the list.

A hidden method activated in the System UI Tuner works by swiping up on the screen from the overview button.

Once in split-screen mode, Nougat behaves similarly to Windows and iOS. Users can drag the black bar in the middle to change the size of the split, or remove it altogether. Pressing and holding the overview button, which shows as two halves when active, will cancel multi-window too.

It works really well, with almost every app supporting it. Only a very small minority of apps actively block it, and those might be updated in the near future to support multi-window.

It’s a feature that should have been there for a long time for Android tablets and makes them more productive as work machines. It’s less useful for smartphones, although landscape multi-window on large-screen phablets can be useful in situations where you need to keep an eye on two things simultaneously, such as a map and a conversation.

Double tap overview to switch to most recent app

Double-tapping the overview button will also switch straight to the last-used app, which makes bouncing between two apps a lot faster. Copy text or links between apps is now rapid. Other devices, including the OnePlus 3 have had this feature for a while, but it’s good to see it baked into Android.

Longer battery life thanks to Doze 2.0

One of the best bits about Android 6.0 Marshmallow was the introduction of Doze, a feature that helped save battery when the phone or tablet wasn’t moving, such as being placed on a desk. It made a big difference to standby battery life.

Android 7.0 Nougat applies the same battery-extending features to when the phone is moving too. When the screen is off, Nougat has much tighter controls on what can and can’t access data, how frequently and how often it wakes the phone up. The result is between 15 futhi 20% longer battery life in my testing on a Nexus 6P.

Facial recognition improvements

Google’s smart lock features have been around for a while. They use a combination of sensors to know when to deactivate the screen lock and when to make sure the passcode is always required.

Facial recognition has been available for a while, but the trusted face system has significantly improved since Android 6.0 Marshmallow, which is particularly useful for tablets and other devices without a fingerprint scanner. Using a Pixel C, the system went from slightly useful in the odd occasion when it worked to unlocking the device about 80% of the time.

Empeleni, the onlytimes it didn’t recognise my face were when I was wearing sunglasses and overly large headphones.

Isinqumo

Overall Android 7.0 Nougat is a great update. It makes some significant changes under the hood that provide benefits including longer battery life. The visual tweaks are subtle and most will likely be masked by the customisations made to Android by third-party manufacturers.

The quick-reply additions to notifications feel like they should have been there from the start. But perhaps the best small tweak that all manufacturers should now adopt is the ability to double-tap the overview button to quickly jump between the last two used apps. It’s so much faster than bouncing to a menu and back, and takes no dexterity at all to activate.

One thing is certain, however – if you didn’t like Android Marshmallow, Nougat isn’t going to do anything to change your mind.

Google’s Nexus devices, including the Nexus 6, 5X, 6P, 9 and Nexus Player, as well as the Google Pixel C tablet, will receive the update over-the-air starting today. The LG V20 will be the first new smartphone to launch with Nougat due for release soon.
