Google releases Android Nougat for the Nexus 9 and other Nexus devices
Android Nougat has landed! The Android 7.0 update for the Nexus 9 and other Nexus device is now making its way to smartphone and tablet owners across the globe. Those who have been running the developer preview only have to install a minor update to get them back on track with the official build, but Nexus owners who are still running Android Marshmallow will have a much larger update file to download and install. The install file for the Nexus 9 is 756.9 MB and takes roughly 20 minutes to download and install.

Android Nougat doesn’t look significantly different than Android Marshmallow, but it does feature a few cosmetic tweaks here and there. The new features which improve the functionality of Android include multi-windows mode on tablets and smartphones, quick switch which allows you to jump back to the previous app you were using, integration of Vulkan API for improved gaming performance, better battery optimization with Doze on the Go, Direct reply within Notifications, Bundled Notifications, Customizable Quick Settings, custom DPI settings to change the size of text on your display, improved security, seamless updates (once you’re on Android N, updating your phone will be much, much faster) and a whole lot more.
We’ll be going over many of the new Android Nougat features in detail over the coming weeks.
