Android N is being developed as a desktop replacement for Windows. Here are 5 things to expect from Android N, which will be available later 2016:
- Apps run in resizable windows. you can run apps in full-screen mode, a half-sized window, or an even smaller window. This lets you do things like surf the web while a video is playing in one window and a chat application runs in a third.
- Support for multi-screen viewing. hook up an external display and you can view a presentation or movie on the big screen while reading your email on the tablet itself.
- Support for keyboard shortcuts
- Support for Two Modes, tablet mode and Desktop mode. Connect a keyboard, and you’ll enter desktop mode. Pull off the keyboard, and you are back in tablet mode. The desktop mode contains features like app launcher and taskbar.
- Support for printers, scanners, sound cards, dedicated graphics chips and multiple monitor setups
