Android N is the operating system for mobile phones which is being developed by Google and it is the latest version of mobile OS. Just like computers, the users now can view multiple windows on their mobile phones too and they can use multiple applications simultaneously.

On the official website the update makes it clear. ''Android N is still in active development, but you can try it now as part of the N Developer Preview. The sections below highlight some of the new features for developers'' mentioned the article.

It talks about the multi-window support which will be very useful. The following information is mentioned on the site-

''In Android N, we're introducing a new and much-requested multitasking feature into the platform - multi-window support.

1)      Users can now pop open two apps on the screen at once.

2)      On phones and tablets running Android N, users can run two apps side-by-side or one-above-the-other in splitscreen mode. Users can resize the apps by dragging the divider between them.

3)      On Android TV devices, apps can put themselves in picture-in-picture mode, allowing them to continue showing content while the user browses or interacts with other apps.

4)      Especially on tablets and other larger-screen devices, multi-window support gives you new ways to engage users. You can even enable drag-and-drop in your app to let users conveniently drag content to or from your app - a great way to enhance your user experience.

5)      It's straightforward to add multi-window support to your app and configure how it handles multi-window display. For example, you can specify your activity's minimum allowable dimensions, preventing users from resizing the activity below that size. You can also disable multi-window display for your app, which ensures that the system will only show your app in full-screen mode.''

YouTube has a video uploaded which talks about the android N features. ''Android N preview is currently available for the latest Nexus devices, but the firmware might land on non-Nexus handsets too in the next couple of weeks'' mentioned Gospel Herald. So now Samsung, LG, Sony, HTC and Motorola phone users too will have access to Android N.

Watch this space for more updates on this revolutionary OS for mobiles.
