Google usually shows new versions of the operating system in the I / O, but this year it will not happen. From now on test versions of the new software will be made available prior to the event for developers (today may see the first version). Apparently, a group of employees giant is working on something new, you have not seen before.
Split screen mode works on phones and tablets, and on one of the screenshots you can see even a button that causes it.

It is worth mentioning that probably will be able to respond to the notification without having to launch the application, so everything will do directly on a sliding bar.
Doze also live to see the improvements and now runs automatically during each off the screen of mobile devices. Unfortunately, there is no detailed information about the amendments of this function, so only testers will be able to see what permits. The novelty will undoubtedly “Project Svelte,” which is to allow and facilitate the operation of the latest Android distribution on less powerful mobile devices.
The development version of Android N will be available for users of Nexus 6P, 5X Nexus, Nexus 6, Pixel C tablet, Nexus 9 and Nexus Player. With the release of a test version of software, everything appears on g.co/android beta, and the pictures of the system will be available on developer.android.com/preview. Google, as usual, says that the software developer and the end user should not use it.
