4. Android N
Android N is the next generation of the Android mobile operating system. We already knew about its split-screen multitasking feature, new quick settings, better battery life and of course new emojis. Google unveiled other new capabilities, including Virtual Reality support via Daydream platform, automatically removing apps you don't use from the home screen, better task switching and more.
So, did we discover what the "N" stood for? We did. It stands for nothing. While speaking about this new device Google also announced a contest to name the operating system after a sugary treat that starts with the letter "N." (Note: Do you know what Android "M" stands for? The answer is here.)
5. Android VR
Just like we hoped, Google revealed plans for Virtual Reality. It is still in the beginning stages, but its reference-design headset, controller and tools platform for Daydream was displayed. As of now it requires a heavy-duty phone that should be available to major manufacturers this fall. Google is working on lots of VR-optimized content including games, movies, street view, apps, photos and more.
