Google presented Android Marshmallow less than year ago and this update is available only for some Android devices now. However, company is preparing presentation for new OS version – Android 7. Screenshots of new operating system Android N (Nutella?) leaked to the network a few days ago and gave a rise to many rumors.
Android N will be announced at the Google I/O on 18-20 of May 2016. Let’s look at the current innovations of new Android 7.0.

There are some rumors about new Android 7 application menu. It can disappear as on the IOS or on the user interfaces of Chinese manufacturers Xiaomi and Meizu, which are based on Android OS.
Google Company published a video in Google Maps twitter, where you can see the Nexus 6P screen without application menu. We don`t know how it will actually look, because new screenshots show us the application menu icon, so we will wait until the Google I/O.
The notification panel and toolbar are changed too. You don`t need to pull it down to turn on the Wi-Fi, because the most used tools are available on the main panel. There is also the button to open the full list of tools, where you can add as much tools, as you need.
There are also some changes in Clear Button design, but its functions and locations are the same. The rest of notification bar options are same as Android M notification bar.
Finally, Google decided to develop the real multi-window support for Android 7. Different manufacturers use multi-window support for their own user interfaces based on Android OS. Multi-window support wasn`t fully launched for Android 6, but it can be activated.
There are some leaks about new Android 7 feature. This function will be interesting for every Android device owner. You need to connect your Android phone or tablet to the monitor and it will work as a computer on the Android 7.
This feature will work only on the devices with USB Type C with special connector help. Ability to connects two or more monitors wasn`t discussed and it is needless to connect multiple monitors to the Android device.
Android Continuum is a great idea that will have a great success.
