Xperia Z3 Android N Developer PreviewSony Mobile and Google have released the Android N Developer Preview for selected variants of the Xperia Z3 (D6603 and D6653 only). This gives developers a chance to get Android N apps ready for the upcoming update. This includes new app features such as multi-window UI and direct reply notifications.

If you want to find further information, then check out the source link, which details how to flash the Android N Developer Preview. To do this you will need to connect to the latest version of Xperia Companion (v1.1.24 or later). You will be able to return to factory settings at any time using Xperia Companion.

What’s new in Android N Developer Preview?

Multi-window – This new multitasking feature lets users view two apps or Activities at the same time, with the system resizing them as needed to fit the device or tablet screen. All apps targeting Android N are resizeable unless they opt-out, so make sure your layouts and resources are optimized.
Bundled notifications – You can use the Notification.Builder.setGroup() method to group your app’s notifications together for easier scanning.
Direct reply notifications – Use the RemoteInput notification API to enable users to respond quickly to notifications, without leaving the notification shade.
Efficiency – Adapt your apps to use Doze to save even more power in Android N. There are also new behaviors in Project Svelte, aiming to reduce the memory needs of Android.
