Android Nougat has been available for several months now and while the number of devices using the update is increasing, there are still only a handful of smartphones using Nougat.

Currently only Google’s range of smartphones, including the new Pixel devices, the Huawei Mate 9 and some Sony Xperia devices are running Android Nougat.

The latest version of Google’s mobile operating system brings with it a number of new benefits and impressive tweaks. These include improved multi-tasking, a host of new emoji, improved GIF keyboard and launcher shortcuts which enables you to access all areas of your phone in just three taps or less.

There are also improvements to Google Now and the addition of 3D Touch style features to the homescreen.
