Google has already made developer versions of the new Android “N” ROMs available on their website. These ROMs are available only for the Google Nexus devices, but it is only a matter of time before other manufacturers also release the Android N updates. Like in the past, we might have to wait for many months for the Android N update. In the meanwhile, you can have a taste of Android N on your old Android Lollipop or Marshmallow phone by using the Xposed module Android N-ify.
Since it is an Xposed module, it requires your phone to be rooted and Xposed framework to be installed. For rooting your Android device, you can use Kingo Root. And for installing the Xposed framework, you can read the instructions about how to install Xposed Framework. After these basic requirements, you can download the Android N-ify module for Xposed from http://repo.xposed.info/module/tk.wasdennnoch.androidn_ify and install it in your phone.
Before you can use the Android N-ify module, you have to enable it in Xposed Framework and then reboot the device. You can do this by selecting the Modules section in the Xposed framework and then placing the checkmark against the Android N-ify module. After this you have to reboot the phone for the module to be enabled.
Although the Android N-ify module already makes some visual changes to make your Android phone feel like it has Android N installed, you can further customize the module options to bring more Android N feeling in your device. This module allows you to add new notification style, new status bar design, new recents design, add the N logo in the easter-eggs and more. As far as the Android N-ify app is concerned, you can switch between the light and dark app themes, force English language in the app, hide launcher icon, save debug log and more.
Conclusion: For having a quick look at the new Android N features, you can use the Android N-ify module for the Xposed framework. It does not offer a complete changeover, but you can still enjoy some of the most talked about features of Android N.
