Doze on the Go

Doze now helps save battery power even when you're on the move. So your device will still go into low power usage while you carry it in your pocket or purse.

Stay in the moment

Android Nougat makes it easier to take action in the moment, with more personalised settings and smarter notifications.

    Rearrange your Quick Setting tiles so you can get to what you want faster.

  • Notification Direct Reply

    Mini conversations within your notifications let you reply on the go – without opening any app.

More ways to make Android yours

Android Nougat opens up more ways for you to personalise your Android device. Decide how your data is used, the way that you’re notified and what your display looks like.

  • Data Saver

    Limit how much data your device uses with Data Saver. When Data Saver is turned on, apps in the background won't be able to access mobile data.

  • Notification Controls

    When a notification pops up, just press and hold to toggle the settings. For instance, you can silence future alerts from an app in the notification itself.

  • Display size

    Not only can you change the size of the text on your device, but the size of the icons and the experience itself.

Security is at the heart
of all that we do

Your safety and privacy are important. As always, Android is built with powerful layers of security and encryption to keep your private data private. With Android Nougat, we’ve also added new features.

  • Seamless Updates

    On select new devices, software updates download in the background, so you won't have to wait while your device syncs with the latest security tools.

  • File-based encryption

    By encrypting at the file level, Android can better isolate and protect files for individual users on your device.

  • Direct Boot

    Starting your device is faster and apps run securely even before you enter your password.
