Quick Switch

Nougat currently permits you to modify back and forth between the 2 most recent apps by double tapping the recent app button. It also works in split-screen or full-app mode. This trick is very useful for the users who use muti-apps at a time.

Split-Screen Mode

Split-Screen Mode

Split-screen works in portrait and landscape modes. once you have one app open, you’ll simultaneously access another app by long-pressing the recent apps button (the very little square one) to prompt a carousel of apps on the side. (You’ll notice that when you enter split-screen mode, the recent apps button transforms into a brand new hamburger icon.) you’ve got some restricted ability to size windows (but only in portrait mode?). you’ll exit spit-screen by dragging the barrier all the thanks to one side or long-pressing on the recent apps button.

Easy Notification Editing

Nougat offers you the power to simply access app-notification preferences by long-pressing on a specific notification. Long pressing slightly pushing it to the side to reveal a gear icon. This small trick even works on the lock screen.

  3. Swipe down from the highest to cite the notification shade.
  4. Hit “Edit” and scroll down and you will realize slightly cat face icon with the label “???? Android Easter egg“. Drag and drop that on top of the fold where you need.
  5. Currently, once you swipe down the shade, you will see a tile for “empty plate.” tap that to prompt an alternative of 4 cat treats and select one.
