Google finally has Android 7.1 Developer Preview 2 is finally available, in a competitive tech world with many manufacturers rushing for an Android Nougat roll out for their devices before the year comes to a close. Android version 7.1 on the other hand is slated to go official by the end of 2016.
Google did not specify the improvements of additional features that come with Android 7.1, but the new Android version will be expected to feature an Apple Force Touch/3D Touch like technology, that allows users to long press to perform certain actions, or viewing contents of an app without having to go into the app itself. Other features include circular app icons, support for image keyboard and a couple more.
The Android 7.1 Developer Preview 2 also comes with various stability issues as warned on the dev website itself. There also seems to be an audio issue which particularly affects the Pixel C, in which the audio may fail when the device goes to sleep. Only factory images are available instead of OTA ones, and Developer Preview 2 is available for the Nexus 5X, Nexus 6P, Nexus 9 and the Pixel C. Fingers crossed and keep your eyes peeled for its official release later this year.
