After two years of hard work, the next Android version will finally come out.
And for the first time in a while, the Android version of Google’s most popular operating system is expected to come with a prerelease build.
That means that you can download it now, and even if you don’t have it yet, you can start testing it in the meantime.
For developers, that means the first update to Android 7.0 Nougat will likely come with bug fixes and performance improvements.
Developers who have already released an Android build to a specific Android device will have access to the full, unlocked version of the operating system for the next few months.
For users, that’ll mean the first Android version with built-in support for the Google Assistant will be available on July 15, according to a tweet from Google.
Android 7 Nougats Developer Previews The next Android release of Google will likely feature a few features that were only hinted at at the Developer Preview 2 launch, such as support for an NFC-based fingerprint scanner.
There’s also likely to be a better camera.
And we’ll probably see a couple of new apps for people to try out.
But for now, all that’s going to have to wait for the official release of Android 7, which is expected in the summer.
For the developers, there will likely be some issues in the way Android 7 will work, but it’ll be a good time to get them fixed before the next release.
In the meantime, the developer preview for Android 7 has been available for several months.
