The CyanogenMod community has announced the launch of Android 7.1 Nougat to selected devices. The community states that the nightly build will launch only on a few devices in the beginning.

The Android Beta Program can install the developer preview on the Nexus 5X, Nexus 6P, and Pixel C at the moment. The new version has some exciting features for the users. In addition to having amazing animation and screen overlays, the new version will have other great features as well.

According to Android Central, one can see some app shortcuts, the creation of round icons and enhanced wallpaper gallery. The tech people can also learn how these great things work. An Android user can add their own intents on any of the apps on their devices.

As per Tech Times, the beta versions or the nightly builds are usually updated every 24 hours. Hence, they pose a threat to a lot of bugs. They also have a number of features missing in them.

CyanogenMod project founder Steve Kondik stated that the themes feature still needs to get updated. Overall, the program looks promising and updating. He also stated that reports of the bug status on the new beta versions for other phones were OK at present as the work still progresses.

The Android 7.1 Nougat offers several new features with an enhanced UI experience with a new notifications menu. Since the new version has tighter core components, multitasking becomes easier. Tbe “Doze on the Go” feature on the new version offers a better experience than on the Android 6.0 Marshmallow’s Doze mode.

The new version will also support Vulkan graphics API, providing a better graphic use for people who love to play games and enjoy virtual reality experiences. Kondik has also advised people not to report bugs for apps which still needs developing. But he appreciates people to get more involved with the project.
