Multi window support is one of the best upcoming features of Android Nougat. Multi tasking support has finally arrived on android, now an android user can see apps in a split screen.

Another improvement which Google has made in Android Nougat is to reply in a notification panel. In Android N, users can directly respond to messages from within the notification banner.

This feature was also not available in Android Marshmallow.

5- Android Nougat and Android Marshmallow : Bundled Notifications
Users will notice a completely new look on the Android N notification bar. From the little quick setting toggles at the top, to the way all similar notifications are bundled together.
Android Nougat will allow users to get all their alerts from one app grouped together into a single, bundled notifications.
