Update– Now you can take partial screen shot on your device using N-ify Xposed module. Steps to enable partial screen shot using N-ify Xposed module have been added.

Google has already rolled out the second developer preview of the latest android version ; Android N and users having latest Nexus devices have started to taste the ‘Nutella’, pretty much, I guess. However, I don’t own a Nexus device and what if I tell you some of the Android N features can be experienced on any android phone having root privileges?

MrWasdennnoch has developed an awesome Xposed module ‘N-ify’ to get some of the cool features of latest android version codenamed as Android N. Xposed frameworks lets you install various android modules to implement feature-some additions to your android phone having root access.N-ify is an Xposed module built to work on almost all android phones with sufficient administrator rights.
N-ify Xposed module allows you to use several features introduced in Android N on you Lollipop and Marshmallow device. The project is currently ongoing and here are the available features so far:
  • Double-tap recents to switch to last app
  • Partial screenshot
  • Settings dashboard subtitles

And that’s not the only thing you can do with the N-ify module. The developer is working hard to include additional android N features such as

  • Night mode – a much awaited option
  • Emergency info on lock screen – helpful when the device is locked
  • Aggressive doze mode – the device need not stay in stationary to trigger doze mode
  • Revamped notification layout menu
  • Recent button navigation – Use recent button to switch between recent apps
  • Inbuilt navigation drawer options in settings.

Wouldn’t it be great when you get these features in your android phone running on Lollipop or Marshmallow? The developer has released an update to the old version of N-ify with changes such as double tap recents fix, settings tile fix, added translations and various other bug fixes.

Through the N developer preview, Google has introduced whole new boot animation, notification tones, wallpapers, native applications and google play services. We’ve got the latest Google camera from the Android N and you can install it in your phone. The newer Google camera features are:

  • Fast switching – Switch quickly between video and photo mode with a quick swipe
  • Auto-HDR+ – Google Camera automatically detects when HDR+ (High Dynamic Range + Low Light) should be used to capture great photos in low light and backlit scenes on the Nexus 6, Nexus 5X, and Nexus 6P
  • Easy access to photo modes – Easily create stunning photographic effects and switch between photo modes (such as Lens Blur, Wide Angle, Panorama, and Photo Sphere) from the top-left menu
  • Slow motion video – Record slow motion videos in 120fps on the Nexus 5X and up to 240fps on the Nexus 6P
  • SmartBurst – Hold down the shutter button on the Nexus 6P to automatically capture a stream of photos and automatically make GIFs


  • Google Camera works on Nexus phones running Android 6.0 and above
    • SmartBurst is only available on the Nexus 6P
    • Slow motion video is only available on the Nexus 5X and 6P
    • Photo Sphere and Panorama require a gyro sensor
    • Photo Sphere, Panorama, and Lens Blur require at least 1 gigabyte of memory

The newer version of Google camera brings lots of changes and bug fixes : You can now take photos while shooting video once again (there’s a new button on the top right), Slow motion is now a separate pull-out menu item rather than a button in regular video mode, Updated icon for front/rear camera swap and an updated shutter button.
