Android Nutella preview available now for developers, Nexus owners Google has pleasantly surprised the Android community by releasing a Developer Preview for Android N (Nutella).
The early preview is Google's effort to get the final N release out to manufacturers this summer rather than over the winter, as usual.

"As we look to the next release of Android, N, you'll notice a few big changes aimed at you as developers: it's earlier than ever, it's easier to try and we're expanding the ways for you to give us feedback. We hope these changes will ensure that you are heard and reflected -- that's what makes Android stronger," says Hiroshi Lockheimer, Google's SVP for Android, Chrome OS and Chromecast.

The Preview is available over-the-air, making it easier than ever to download.

For now, we can see the main changes are better notifications including "direct reply notifications," and the addition of split-screen view, allowing for multiple apps to run side-by-side.
