Android 7.0 Nougat Developer Preview 5 is rolling out now

Android N Dev Preview 3 Nexus 6P 1-AA

Google has just released the fifth (and final) developer preview for Android 7.0 Nougat.

In the announcement post on the Android Developers Blog, Google notes that while last month’s dev preview included the final APIs for Nougat, this new preview gives developers the “near-final” system updates for all compatible preview devices. Below you can find a quick rundown of what’s included in this new release:

  • System images for Nexus and other preview devices
  • An emulator that you can use for doing the final testing of your apps to make sure they’re ready
  • The final N APIs (API level 24) and latest system behaviors and UI
  • The latest bug fixes and optimizations across the system and in preinstalled apps

The fifth dev preview comes in at build number NPD90G.

Both factory images and OTA zip files are now available at the links below, and over-the-air updates will start rolling out later today for folks who are enrolled in the Android Beta Program.

There should be a few more changes present in this dev preview, so we’ll be sure to update you once we spend more time with it.
