Google has released a Developer Preview of its Android N operating system.

The preview is a work-in-progress build, which Google wants users to provide feedback on.

“The earlier preview allows us to hand off the final N release to device makers this summer, so they can get their hands on the latest version of Android earlier than ever,” said Google.

Some of the new features of the Android N Developer Preview include:

  • Multi-window: Your activity can be launched in split-screen modes on phones and tablets. You can also specify your activity’s minimum allowable dimensions.
  • Direct reply notifications: Users can reply to incoming message notifications without leaving the notification shade.
  • Bundled notifications: Group notifications from the same app together.
  • Efficiency: Saves battery and memory usage when your device is stationary.
  • Improved Java 8 language support: The new feature helps reduce boilerplate code.
