HTC Receives the Nougat Update
HTC in USA has revealed that it has begun rolling out that latest Android v7.0 Nougat update to users of its flagship device the HTC 10. While the update is currently only available on phones that are unlocked, those that use smartphones that have been carrier locked can expect the update by early next year.
The beta version of the Nougat update has been doing the rounds with HTC users for testing over the past few months and it is finally ready to be publicly launched.
Taking up a massive 1.11 GB of storage space, this update is certainly a significant one. Some of the major changes that the HTC 10 users will see are, the night reading mode which is gentle on the eyes and multi-windows or split-screen that allows you to use two apps at the same time for optimum multitasking.
Another added feature that will help save on battery life is the Doze mode that conserves a massive amount of battery. The Settings menu has also been overhauled in the Nougat update and HTC has added minimal UI skin features of its own over the Android stock OS update.
The new Nougat features can also be seen in the Notification Panel and the Quick Toggling. Notifications like messages can now be directly responded to from within the pop-up with the latest update. Also users can customise their Shelf panel where options like brightness, battery, torch, WiFi and other options are usually seen.
Another exciting feature HTC users will see it the easy ability to switch between apps. By simply double tapping on the Recent button, you can switch to your last used app. The entire interface looks cleaner and smoother as well.
There are certainly a few glitches that come even with the installing of the latest update. However these will surely be fixed once more users explore the update and send in their own reports. For now, HTC users can upgrade, explore and no doubt rejoice!
