Is there anything more dreaded than being stranded somewhere with a dying phone battery and no charger in sight? You replay every moment in your mind, wishing you could go back in time and stop yourself from checking Instagram for the billionth time. You would give up every minute of data usage, just for a better charge.


Google has listened to your prayers and developed Android 7.0 Nougat, a new operating system that will streamline everything and make processes more efficient — great news for your battery life! The operating system will put your phone in low battery mode when you aren’t doing anything and allow you to reply to messages and notifications without ever opening an app. Thanks to Nougat’s new multi-window feature, you can run (and work from) two apps at the same time — meaning you won’t waste battery switching back and forth between apps.

Other features of the new update include the ability to type in two languages at the same time, 72 brand new emoji, virtual reality compatibility for beloved apps and a data saver option. The operating system will start rolling out to Google Nexus devices over the next few weeks. For others, the update arrival will depend on both carrier and device.
