Google just released Developer Preview 2 (DP2) for Android N, and inside, the Android team has baked in plenty of changes, as well as fixes from last month’s preview. Once the latest NPC91K build of Android N is booted, developers will find system-wide support for the Vulkan 3D rendering API, enhanced launcher shortcuts, and changes for the Multi-Window experience.
Remember, this is still a developer preview and not intended for daily driver use. Users may experience slowdowns, jank, and unwanted device behavior from time to time. If you don’t mind any of that, have at it.
