Google is going to release preview images of Android N for the Nexus 6, Nexus 5X, Nexus 6P, Nexus 9, Nexus Player, Pixel C and the General Mobile 4G Android One handset.

Some new features in the Android N developer preview include split-screen multitasking, the ability to directly reply to notifications from any apps, improved notification handling, a better Doze mode that’s going to conserve more battery and support for Java 8 language features.

Android N is going to have many other features and improvements which you don’t see in the developer preview. Google will reveal more about Android N at I/O 2016.
