Google announces that the Nexus 9 won’t be getting Vulkan API support
Android has grown so much as a platform over the years, especially with the way they offer new and improved versions of the same software every year included with a big baggage of perks but with the new Android version expected to come out later this year – the Android Nougat 7.0 – users may not be getting all they have bargained for, especially for the users of the Nexus 9 tablet.
Google had earlier announced as far back as 2015 November that on their next sets of Android generations, they would always use the Vulkan Graphics – an API that promised a very huge boost on the graphics rendering and performance capabilities of the phone – but right now, Google might be going back on their word because the nexus 9 device would not get any update to allow it be compatible with the Vulkan API.
When Google first floated the final version of Android N to the tablet users and they found out that they still did not have Vulkan support, they were left confused as to whether or not they would be getting it in the future and now, they know for sure that they wont.
This is surprising to say the least because the nexus 9 device is more than able to handle these next gen graphics and the Nexus 5X and 6P had even gotten this support a while ago. Whatever the case is though, Google has had the final say.
