Android Nougat aims to ease migration from iOS to Android

Soon to be released Android Nougat offers improved multitasking, smarter notifications 

Android 7.0 Nougat is the new version of Google’s mobile operating system, used by billions of devices around the world. It features longer battery life, improved multitasking and smarter notifications in a slimmed down and refined Android experience – following on the work done in last year’s version 6 Marshmallow.

It is faster, more polished and a subtly-better experience all-round. Apps install more quickly, the OS can be smaller in size and updates to Android can be installed on the fly, without having to wait for 10 minutes while it reboots, if you have a new device.

Android Nougat: Switch easily to Android from iOS

In a move to ease up the transition from iOS to Android for its users, Google has introduced a new option in its device setup process on recently launched Android 7.0 Nougat. The new option essentially helps users to transfer their data from their earlier device to their Android device.

However, the utility of the new option is debatable as instead of following an active approach and creating an app to ease the transition, as in case of Apple’s Move to iOS app, Google has taken a more passive approach by providing people with instructions to transfer their data using individual apps.
