I’ve never understood well the Android navigation bar. I have not understood why it has never had more utility, mainly on those mobile phones that have this navigation bar and virtualized Android buttons. And it seems that now Google will change this navigation bar to make it 100% customizable, a feature that could come with the first update of the new version, Android 7.1 Nougat.
Android 7.1 Nougat
Android 7.0 Nougat has just arrived to the first Nexus and we are already talking about which would be a feature of a future update. Actually it is so because in this new version has found a hidden code that tells us that the operating system will incorporate a new feature very soon, and that it’s the ability to fully customize the navigation bar of your mobile phone.
I.e., not only this bar is going to be more useful to the count with more options, but Google us will give the option of that are us same which personalize this bar of navigation. Options as it might be to copy and paste text, access to the Clipboard, or perhaps shortcuts to applications or quick adjustments, are some of the things that we could find in the navigation bar with options of customization that Google could give us.
If so, when?
Because the truth is that at the moment this is not a feature that is included in Android 7th Nougat, but in your own code of the operating system. It is a hidden feature that probably will be in evidence until you see if it works well or not. Of reach, would arrive with the next update, that could be a future Android 7.1 Nougat. Or even with a later version, something like Android or such and as happened with the multi-window function, which was already present in Android Marshmallow in the code, but that has not been active definitely up to 7.0 Android Nougat. That would be have that wait a year to be able to customize the bar of navigation and that for them Nexus. Them others smartphones would depend of their manufacturers, and of that these want to include this feature in the layer of customization of them mobile.
