Android N Beta Overview: 6 Features in 60 Seconds (Video)
You might’ve seen our Android expert Joe Levi tackle some of the minutia of what’s going on in the latest beta edition of the OS. You’ve surely seen a fair share of news, screenshots and commentary. You might be tempted to even hit up that Google link and enroll in the Android Beta Program yourself. But if you want to get down and dirty and see things in living color, buckle up: we’ve got six points to go through in 60 seconds — well, minus the intro and outro, but who’s actually counting — in our Android N Beta overview.
Keep in mind that the feature set we have on the Android N Beta on our Nexus 9 is different to what the phones get — those being the Nexus 6, the Nexus 5X, the Nexus 6P and the General Mobile 4G (an Android One phone). We don’t have the nifty Emergency Info page that the phones do, nor the kernel-based call-blocking features.
Still, we cover the lack of a name and an old Easter egg, a reformed settings menu, a flatter, more versatile notification shade, a wider-reaching Data Saver, the return of Night Mode and the dark theme and the sorta janky split-screen function. Yep, all that in a single minute. Check out what’s cooking in this early Android N Beta below.
