Android Nougat review: what's new in Android 7.1.2?

The video is targeting developers, so it can get a bit technical, but there’s plenty of info for anyone who is interested in the new Android 7.1 Nougat features. They include the new round icons, the launcher shortcuts, a new storage manager called Smart Storage, a “restart” option on the power down menu, GIF support in the Google Keyboard and much more.

The Developer Preview of Android 7.1 Nougat currently supports the Nexus 6P, Nexus 5X and Pixel C devices, and the full version is available for people who buy the new Google Pixel and Pixel XL smartphones. Google said it should be available for over-the-air updates for other phones by the end of 2016.
