The Android N Developer Preview with Split-Screen Multitasking Is Available Today


ANdroid NWell, this was unexpected. Starting today, Google is making a developer preview of the next version of Android, codenamed “N,” available for Nexus devices. That’s much, much earlier than ever before — Google usually waits until its IO developer conference.

It’s also going to be much, much easier for anybody to try it out, too. For the first time, the preview will be available as an over-the-air update you can sign up for at starting later today (More traditional device images can be downloaded ). Google, of course, doesn’t recommend that this preview be used by regular consumers and it is “not intended for daily use or consumer use.”
