Google Android 7.1 Nougat Developer Preview Released for Nexus Devices :- Google has finally announced the developer preview of the Android Nougat 7.1 for the devices of Nexus 5X, Nexus 6P and Pixel C. The company, earlier this month, has promised to release the developer preview for the Nexus devices and kept their promise. The latest update brings new features to its consumers and developers who can be included with a better Daydream VR support. The A/B system updates introduced app shortcuts and image keyboard support. The new version lets you add image keyboard support with compatibility back to API level 13.
In a statement, Google said that since the Android 7.1 APIs are final, you can publish updates compiling with, and optionally targeting, API 25 to Google Play. You can now publish app updates that use API 25 to your alpha, beta, or even production channels in the Google Play Developer Console. Push your app updates to users whose devices are running Android Nougat 7.1, such as Pixel and Android Beta devices.
The latest version of Android Nougat 7.1 also introduces Bottom Navigation View Widget which is used to implement the bottom navigating pattern from the material design.
To get Android preview on your devices, you need to enroll in the Android Beta Program when you get the update your device will automatically get the download.
Currently, Android Nougat 7.1 is available on a very limited set of Android devices where the preview system images for this developer preview contain messenger and google keyboard apps.
Today, Google is announcing new storage tiers available from the Google Cloud, and specifically the Google Cloud Platform. The Android Nougat 7.1 will be available in the month of December 2016.
