What to Expect in the Rumoured Android 7.0 (Nutella)

As the world gradually accepts the culture of using technology to make our daily activities more productive, here is a piece to highlight the features of the latest Android Operating System.

According to Geek, While most devices are yet to get Android Marshmallow update, the next version of Android OS is already on its way. The Hybrid OS of Linux and Java is said to be Android N as there isnt an official name yet with indications it been called Android Nutella.

With the uncertainties, there are features we may likely see in the next version of Android OS. Some are assertions directly from Google while others are rumors and speculations.

Multi Window Support

Well, Jide beat Google to this with the release of Remix OS. This proves Android OS can definitely support multi-window multitasking and Google might officially introduce this feature in Android N. In a Reddit AMA thread, Android and Chrome UX director Glen Murphy admitted that split-screen multitasking is already in the works.

There are many things, like multi-window, that we’ve been spending a lot of time on — hopefully we can share more about this soon… We’re working on lots of things right now for N that, of course, we wish we had, you know, yesterday… But we’d spoil the surprise of N if we shared all of them. Split screen is in the works!
This will particularly make Android tablets and 2-in-1 devices a lot more productive. By the way, this feature is already hidden in Marshmallow but not enabled by default. It is experimental and Google may likely perfect it with the launch of Android N.

A Video Editor

Android OS has an inbuilt image editor but one thing it lacks is a video editor. Android users have to rely on 3rd party apps to edit videos but this may be coming to an end with Android N.

A New Messaging App

Hangouts is going through a redesign and this includes removal of the SMS/MMS feature. It has been reported that the revamped messaging app will include chatbots. This will work based on artificial intelligence and the bots will be able to respond to natural language queries.

Android For PC?

When Google decided to merge Android OS with Chrome OS, we expect this and it may become a reality soon. A report on the Wall Street Journal suggests this will finally happen in 2017 when the final version of the optimized Android version for PC gets released. However, there’s going to be a preview of this before this year runs out.
