Google is letting the public offer its naming suggestions for the next version of Android — I'm TeamNougat — but it still offered up plenty of new details about Android N at its developer conference.

Google did that, it says so that developers and OEMs could start offering their feedback earlier.

In addition to some of the features we've already seen with N, Google said at I/O that its focus on the operating system would focus on performance, security and productivity.

The new compiler should also help with battery life, since the processor won't be taxed quite so much.

Multi-window apps work on phones and tablets, and in our tests with early versions of Android N, it works really well.

Google also gave a shout-out to its team that proposed bringing 13 emoji that better represent working women to Unicode consortium.
