Android 7.0 Nougat brings a new feature like split screen multitasking, along with updates to more features like Quick Settings. The Quick Settings are a quite convenient feature, thinking of it gives you access to different alternatives quickly. With Nougat, the toggles are currently customizable, which should be possible on Marshmallow as well, however it required digging into hidden choices.
