    There were some handy new features added to Android N even though its not a huge update. Another great feature in the latest version of Android N is the inclusion of "Seamless updates".

    Not only will Android N download updates in the background it will also install those updates in the background which means you will no longer have to reboot your phone and wait for the update to install. Instead once the update is finished installing you will just reboot the phone and everything will be ready to go. This feature will be available for any device running Android N not just Nexus devices which is pretty cool.
