Plus, Google wants your input on what Android N should be named when it rolls out later this summer.

The Big Stuff

While nothing particularly new showed up during the Android N introduction at Google I/O, the company did spend some time highlighting the OS.

We ve already seen the productivity features in earlier developer previews, but here s what Google is most excited about: Android N is going to change the way the recents button the square works to help make using your device more efficient.

Instead of showing you what feels like an endless stream of recently used apps, Google will cut it down to around seven.

This will allow you to move between apps rapidly, like when you re consulting your calendar while on a phone call.

Finally, Android N will come with support for Unicode 9 emoji that include increased skin tone variations and more human-looking emoji.
