As per Google, there are over 250 major features in Android Nougat. Among new features include over 1,500 different emoji including 72 new ones. The new Android version will allow users to tweak Quick Settings - you can actually control what tiles go where.

Apps can tailor their content based on your locale settings. So if you speak multiple languages, for instance, then search engines can show results in each of those languages.

Android Nougat helps you multitask with ease with new features like Multi-window, Direct reply, and Quick switch. To enhance battery life, the Doze feature has been bolstered further in Android Nougat.

Android Nougat brings support for VulkanTM (an advanced 3D rendering API) and Daydream (Google's platform for mobile virtual reality).

Android devices with Nougat can install software updates in the background which means you won't have to wait while your device installs the update and optimizes all your apps for the new version. And for current Nexus users, software updates now install much faster, so you won't have to wait for minutes while your device reboots.

Android Nougat also brings Direct Boot for faster startup and file based encryption for more security.
