Android N Dev Preview 2 Adds Support to Touch 3D and Other News

With the release today of the new factory image of Androd N, Google has implemented several new features that we’re finding with you.

After having talked about the new emoji, the new tiles in the Quick Settings, the new pop-icon dedicated to folders and to the implementation of the “clear all” button in the menu on your recent apps, another interesting innovation that emerges from the documents of Android N is support for dynamic links and shortcuts, in two words: touch 3D.

It seems that with the upcoming release of Android N, the user can decide whether to enable or disable dynamic links directly from pop-Quick shortcuts Settings.

Computergees presents full text below:

Dynamic shortcuts and pinned shortcuts:

An application can publish shortcuts with set Dynamic Shortcuts(List) and add Dynamic Shortcut (ShortcutInfo). There can be at most get Max Dynamic Shortcut Count() number of dynamic shortcuts at a time from the same application. A dynamic shortcut can be deleted with delete Dynamic Shortcut(String), and apps can also use delete All Dynamic Shortcuts() to delete all dynamic shortcuts.

The shortcuts that are currently published by the above APIs are called “dynamic”, because they can be removed by the creator application at any time. The user may “pin” dynamic shortcuts on Launcher to make “pinned” short cuts. Pinned shortcuts cannot be removed by the creator app. An application can obtain all pinned shortcuts from itself with get Pinned Shortcuts(). Applications should keep the pinned shortcut information up-to-date using update Shortcuts(List).

The number of pinned shortcuts does not affect the number of dynamic shortcuts that can be published by an application at a time. No matter how many pinned shortcuts that Launcher has for an application, the application can still always publish getMaxDynamicShortcutCount() number of dynamic shortcuts.

Armed with this information you could also predict that future Nexus will almost certainly a function similar to the 3D touch used by Apple.

Another innovation is the ability to set a different background for the home screen and lock screen. In fact now, as it does in practically all custom launcher by manufacturers of smartphones, as you choose a background, you will be asked if you want to set it only for your home screen, just like lock screen or both.

This implementation should work only with static wallpapers and not with animated ones that would still automatically set for both.

Last difference found concerns the recent applications screen. After clicking the “clear all” button again, as you can see from the screenshots above, instead of writing “screens are shown in this section” you have inserted a new icon that says “there are no recent screenshots”.

For now these are further news of Dev Preview 2, but we are confident that there will be many more in the coming days.
