Android N name finally revealed
The longing for the name of Android N is finally over, and now, the people who glued their eyes to the clocks can relax their eyeballs. Why? Because Google has drawn the curtains and here is it…..the name of the much-awaited operating system Android N name finally revealed. Are you excited to know the name or shall I keep the mystery a little longer. Don’t worry, here I reveal the name- it is Nougat. You are aware of the fashion of naming the Android versions after the desserts’ names. You must remember the previous names – Lollipop, Marshmallow and many more. Continuing that fashion of confectionary-based theme, Google had launched the #NameAndroidN campaign in May 2016 and kept it open for the public to give their suggestions for the name of the Android N. The people across the globe had actively participated in the campaign.
The results of the campaign have helped Google in this process of building a perfect name for the advanced Android version. After Android N name finally revealed, the name Nougat has been finalized, but the fact that it is chosen from the suggestions received during the campaign is questionable. The people speculated that Nutella or Nankatai (Indian desert) would win the race as Nutella, and New York Cheesecake were in the lead. But out of nowhere, Nougat came into the spotlight. One reason for such speculation could be that Indians had filed a petition to Sundar Pichai, the CEO of Google, to name Android N after Nankatai. It was not an easy task to go through the submissions of millions of people online. There was a lot of lobbying done for the selection of the name by the people.
You would be stunned to know that people had pleaded really hard to convince the Google decision-makers to pick their suggested names for Android N. In fact, there was a bunch of students from IIT-Kharagpur who had influenced the Google team members to finalize the name Lassi (yogurt- based milk) for it. The other names on the list were Nutmeg, Nectarine, Nankatai, and Neyappam (South Indian sweet).
Nougat has come with some advancements. The new-spilt screen function would enable the users to use two apps simultaneously. The screen would be divided into two display windows for the apps, thus, ensuring multitasking for the users. Fed up of the crowd of the notifications on your cell phone? Then Android N has something better to offer. The Bundled Notifications option would enable the user to club together the notifications of the same app. Also, the limit of the notifications has also been extended, and the Direct Reply feature would allow the user to reply to the messages or e-mails within the notification interface. The new Android version has focused on the optimal use of the RAM, so Project Svelte the usage of RAM would be minimized and the apps will run efficiently. The Quick settings have also undergone a change where the user can have more settings options. Android TV is a highlighting feature which permits the users to record and replay the content from Android TV via APIs. For the working people, there is another special feature called Android for Work where the user can set a password for apps running in the work profile.
