Android N ("N" for Nutella) is the next android OS version expected to be launched later this year but the Beta version has already been rolled out on some Nexus devices so those that are using recent Nexus android phones from google should be aware of what am saying.

The new android operating system will take over from the current reigning android 6.0 Marshmallow OS and the android N (7.0) comes with some new exciting features which are not in the Lollipop and Marshmallow versions.

One of the new features features is the "quick reply" feature. This is a very important tool that lets you quickly reply to any message or chat without opening the containing application.

How Quick Reply Feature Works

Whenever, you are doing something else on another application on your phone, for example when you are browsing on your opera mini and you receive a chat notification from whatsapp, BBM or any other instant messaging app, this feature will bring out a quick reply bar and you will reply the message while still on opera mini. That's without opening the messaging app. It's simple as that.
