Here’s something new to chew on: Google’s Android Nougat.

Google has started to roll out Android 7.0 Nougat this week to users. The company’s latest operating system will be delivered via over-the-air update to Nexus devices first, including the Nexus 6, Nexus 5X, Nexus 6P, Nexus 9, Nexus Player, as well as Pixel C and General Mobile 4G (Android One).

Android Nougat is Google’s latest update of its phone and tablet operating system. According to Google, Android Nougat reflects input from thousands of fans and developers all over the world.

“We took a different approach to building and launching Nougat this year. For starters, we invited developers to take a sneak peek at Android N back in March, so they could bring their apps to the new platform earlier. And of course we asked you to help us come up with names for this year’s release, resulting in lots of great ideas, and a delicious unveiling back in June,” wrote Sameer Samat, VP of Product Management, Android & Google Play, in a post on Google’s blog.

The new Android OS comes with more than 250 features such as an updated emoji library, a multi-window view option, Vulkan support, a virtual reality mode, direct reply capabilities, file-based encryption, JIT compiler, and many more.

Aside from the upcoming software update to Android devices, Google will also be launching the LG V20, the first smartphone to run Android Nougat right out of the box. Meanwhile, Android 7.0’s source code will be released to the Android Open Source Project.
