All that’s new in Android N Dev Preview 5
Easter Egg Android Neko:
There is one Easter Egg in Android Nougat Dev Preview 5 too and it is funnier than Easter Eggs seen on Dev Preview 4 and more like a mini game. Google has termed it Android Neko and as you can guess it a Cat collection game on the lines of “Neko Atsume”.
As you can see in the screenshots above you can collect and even share the collected Cat with friends. You can read about how to get this Easter Egg game working by clicking here.
Camera Apps changes:
With the Android Nougat Dev Preview 5.0, the camera app has seen many UI tweaks and some animations have also changed. As you can see in the screenshot above you can now set what the volume key does. Similarly there are changes in how the toggles appear.
Quick-Action Toggle behavior changed:
Toggles like WiFi and Mobile Data are back to their good behavior as before DP4 and now tapping on them switches them on / off. On DP4 these action buttons used to throw a mini menu on tapping.
Apps have their Installation source info:
If you go to settings and check any of the apps, you will get information about its installation source (whether store or else) at the bottom. Check the screenshot above.
