Nexus 7 Android M Update: 5 Important Details



Android M vs. Android Lollipop

Android M vs. Android Lollipop

We don't know if the Nexus 7 will get Android M but that doesn't mean that you can't prepare. Android M isn't going to bring widespread visual changes to the Android OS but it will be bringing loads of changes and features that you need to be aware of. 

Google outlined a number of Android M features on stage at Google I/O. If you tuned into the live stream (or if you were there) you probably caught some of them. Google didn't announce every Android M feature on stage though.

We've been poking around the developer preview looking for some of these lesser known features and we've come up with a comparison that not only outlines these features but compares them to Android Lollipop. It's a great starting point for those of you that own a Nexus 7 and are interested in the comparison.

We highly recommend getting familiar with Android M before the Android M release date in Q3. This way, you'll be prepared for the changes if the Nexus 7 Android M release does come like we expect it to.

    Not only is this terribly written (we get it, it’s unconfirmed) and in an awful slideshow format that only exists to artificial inflate page views but, actually, it contains no useful information bar a link to Android Police. Congrats.

    And my Nexus 7 2013 has aguare a version of a constant female voice that that set will not work with. You cannot get to the download areas line ,that same line that has the wireless signal not to mention on 2012 version, I think, a night white star on the same line. I cannot use any of the apps on the damn thing (2013). The ability to touch all parts – any part of the xscreen is compromised. If you need to touch or go somewhere on the appscreen you are shot down period. Touch and voice cannot operate on the. Nexus 2013. ,wireless. This device that so makes my 2013 Nexus inopoerable. That voice painfully scrats at you untill all you can do is put it down and give up ever getting my newes. images. It is worthless from a suggestion while I has Norton Mobile on it.From where is not known there is not known and turned it into crap. Touch and the voice if it is from an really absurd version of. Version 6 operating system from Google is impossible to operate. If you are bored I have no phone either to check out and see!

    I have a 2012 Nexus 7 that was having a lot of problems. I did a factory reset and it’s running 5.1.1. It has only been one day but so far so good.

    I have a N7 tablet. Every time I try to update the software, it gives me an error. No explanation why it is not updating. I have performed a factory reset and the little robot still dies.
