Posted by Sahil Goyal
Today its the celebration day for all clash of clans players, the most awaited update of Clash of Clans is now live. People were more than ready for this all time best featured October  update. If you heard about COC game and played it ever, you might know how everyone should be feeling right now after coc october update. With the update lots of features are added and in-app purchase rates also slashed to 25 percent.

clans of clans latest update

Supercell team confirmed that they worked very hard into something for this update and now its been rolled out for all players. Although this update was expected to be rolled out in September but due to some reasons it got fizzled out and got live today on 13th of October.

COC update Schedule

2 days before, a COC player asked about the release date for their update in their official COC forum, and a top participant directly answered that query and said the update will be released in couple of days. Many players gasped about their release before 14th and they actually done with their update before October 14th and polished minor details into their regular maintenance period, 10-12 hours after October Update. Lets see what's new added into Clash of Clans and what changes made into it. Every major aspect got covered into this update from building armies to new defense

In this article I'll be going to cover every aspect that you should need to know about Clash of clans' latest update. In effort to making the Gameplay more enjoyable COC developers addressed everything from defending against massive bowler attacks to lazy troops training process. One thing is sure that Clash of Clans is one of the most beautiful game and developer at Supercell always makes amazing steps to make it more awesome.

October Discount packs for Clash of Clans

So the latest update is rolled out with impressive special 4x discount offer. Actually there are multiple discount packs based on the Town Hall level.

  • For TH 6 player, 2 million Gold and 2 Million elixir with 500 gems for just $4.99 and 2500 Gems with a free builder for just $19.99
  • For TH 7 player, 3 million Gold, 30 thousand Dark elixir and 500 gems for just $4.99
  • For players with TH above than level 7, 4 million gold with level 2 bomb tower and 1200 free gems for just $9.99
Remember this offers is only available for 3 days and later on all in-app purchases will be available on normal rates, so hurry up and get your best offer.

Retrain Army in COC

With the special discounts, a new feature named Retrain Army added, it's the real one which all the players ever wanted. Retrain Army allows you to train Troops having double capacity of your actual Army camp size i.e. if you have troops capacity of 200 then it allows you to train 400 troops.

Whenever I play Clash of Clans, I always worry about my treasure and this update take off all my worries coz when i train double capacity troops, much of my treasure got saved in form of troops. Lets say I have 5M elixirs and my troops take 2M in training with the double capacity upgrade now it will take 4M in training it means my 2M got saved in form of troops and if I need my 2M elixer back then I just have to remove extra troops from the Barracks.

One thing is not clear here that it doesn't make sense like if you have 4 maxed barracks or 1 maxed barrack they work same I am trying to say is now maxing of barracks here is of no use from now, just upgrade your one barrack and keep others as they are no need to upgrade every barracks.

There is another feature also added using which you can select 3 Army sets and one army set can be trained with just single tap. Like for treasure loot attack you want to train Archers, Goblins and Hogs and for Tropthy attacks you want to train Dragons, Pekka, Hogs and Giants, Wizards and Archors etc.
just add them to your Army set and train them with just single tap.

New Defense added : bomb Tower

You might heard about Clash Royale, another hit game from Supercell, new defence were introduced there and bomb tower is also there which takes down the ground enemies. In Clash of Clans its working is similar and it works only on ground troops like hogs riders , wizards, giants etc. Its is available at TH 8 and upgradable to level 5. See Bomb Tower in action in this video.

Upgrade for Town Hall 11 villages

Players at Town Hall 11 are most beneficial to this update especially maxed player who had nothing to upgrade till yesterday but now with the new update they got much to upgrade to next level. Troops and defense added for next level are :

  • Baby Dragon [ level 5 Max] [ level 4 max for TH 10]
  • Dragon [Level 6 Max]
  • X-Box [Level 5 Max]
  • Hidden Tesla [Level 9 Max]
  • Mortar [Level 10 max]
  • 25 Extra walls [For covering Bomb Tower]

If you reached to higher levels in Clash of Clans then you might be familiar with power of X-bow and now with 1 level upgrade it got more powerful and made it very difficult to get 100% in attacks.

clans of clans new update

Upgrade for Town Hall 10 villages

With the upgrade to one level further, now TH 10 players got more stuff to upgrade especially the Baby Drag from Level 3 to 4 at Town Hall 10.

  • Wizard [Level 7 Max]
  • Baby Dragon [Level 4 Max]
  • Bomb Tower

Bowler Nerf

COC developers noticed easy 3 star attacks with bowlers and 3-4 healers. Bowlers are the most powerful troop with more defensive hit-points but now with the upgrade of Defense levels, bowlers are no longer stronger as they were previously.

With new Clash of Clans update Bowlers will die faster and they got their hitpoints reduced making less effective attacks and addition of bomb tower they hit lazy bowlers like a wizard tower does. This update will surely reduce the bowlers only attacks.

clans of clans october update

Update for Spells

The Clone Spell now have longer lifetime to improve its value among other spells and to make it more helping for attackers.
You might haven't used Dark Elixir Skeleton spell many time if you have but with this updrage now you will love to attack with this Dark Elixir Skeleton Spell. Now it spawns more Skeletons 26 in total, a perfect distraction for Troops inside Clan Castle.

Slashed Training time

This update is applicable for every players no matter on what level their Town Halls are. Many troops like wizards, Dragons, Pekka, balloons etc. took plenty of time while training before the update but now their training time slashed to great percentage. Brewing troops faster encourage faster attacks and upgrades to further levels.

latest clans of clans update

Discounts while Upgrading Troops, Defenses and Treasure producers

With this new update Supercell made the upgrades more faster and cheaper. Now upgrading defences like Canons and Archer Tower wouldn't take much time and could easily be upgradable at lesser cost.

Balancing Clan Wars

Many players afraid on attacking at higher level villages and attack to villages at lower levels resulting deduction into their win bonus, but now on you are free to attack at any village without worrying about bonus deduction. From now no bonus will be deduced and in fact you will be awarded a participation bonus even in you lose any attack. This will surely increase engagements in clan wars and attacking at higher level will be awarded with more Clan XP

Friendly Clan Wars

The last announcement was about friendly clan battles just like the real one with now deduction into our treasury or trophies. Anyonce can start friendly battle with the choice for date and time and the army for both side.

With the launch of new Apple iPhones series like iPhone 5, 6 and 7, Apple recommends you to switch to latest iPhone and ditch your old phone and keep your iPhones updated with their regular releases.

Since the FBI investigated upon Apple products and found many glitches in their older versions, due to security issues popular Social sites and many others companies like Instagram, Viber, Fb and Whatsapp stopped supporting the older versions of iPhones and now only compatible to latest firmware. And one bad thing about the Apple iPhones is you can download apps only from their official App Store which always shows latest available version of every single app unless you used some tweaks or having rooted iPhone. Due to the same security issues many old apps which haven’t released their updates stopped working for new iOS firmware and either the app developers also request you to switch to latest firmware and upgrade your iPhone.

Many of us have Android devices and they have already given too many awesome features but here I have given 11 features that were not officially possible without Android Nougat. Let me know if your device running of lower versions like Android Marshmallow, Lollipop or Kitkat having support for any of these features described below

Run Multiple apps side by side in Android 7.0

You might split your Android Screen many times using Split View Multi Screen or any other app, but know this feature is launched officially for devices running on Android Nougat. Now using this feature you would be able to run any of 2 apps simultaneously on a single screen.
Large screen devices like tablets are too handy for this, but this works fine even on small screened Android devices.

android nougat features

Steps to Run Multiple apps side by side :
  • Tap on the Overview Button and open the Multitasking view
  • Hold the app title bar and drag it to the top or the left of your screen
  • Now pick another app
You can change the space given to both windows just by tapping and holding the black bar given in the center.

You can return to the single window mode by holding the Overview button or drag the black bar all the way to the top or towards right side of the screen 

Instantly Switching between apps

Multitasking is already been so simpler but another useful change is given in Android Nougat, where you can return to previous app just by tapping the Overview button two times and with another double tap you can return to the first app.

android nougat features

Firstly it doesn't look so useful, but switching between Music and Maps were never been so easier while driving.

Extra battery saving

If you ever used lower versions of Android and recently updated to Android Marshmallow, you might feel improved battery life of your Android. Its because of Doze, a feature given to Android Marshmallow using which it puts your device on lower power mode and limits the battery usage by all running apps when your device is flat and still.

android nougat features

To implement doze properly, all the apps were required to relaunch their improved version to limit the alerts and extending battery life. With the Android Nougat, Doze got improved now it works even when your Android bounces in your Bag or in a Pocket. 

You can also limit the doze feature by excluding apps from the Battery optimization

Steps to exclude apps from the Doze

  • Go to your Device settings
  • Navigate to battery options and tap on it
  • Tap on the menu button given at the top right corner (with three dots)
  • And choose battery optimization
  • Un-check the apps you want to remove
  • Now press done/save

See Device info at a glance

Main Settings window in Android nougat got improved and now you can see main information like current CPU consumption, Consumed  Memory and RAM and battery consumption stat just from the main settings page. This is another small yet useful upgrade, now you are not required to dive into meshy settings.

android nougat features

You can check details about Current volume level, battery level, connected wi-fi network just by swiping down the screen in the setting app. Suggestions are also given at the top which you might not be aware of. You can hide all these pretty easily.

Better Quick Settings Pane Customization

Quick Settings pane is one of the most useful features by Android since the starting and now it's well established part of Android Stock. Now in Android Nougat you can have more control over Quick Pane settings than ever.

android nougat features

Just use two finger for the quick pane drop down settings and tap on edit button. You can change the Tap and Delay timings for any icon and change positions of any icon and add or remove them from the drop down settings. The icon in the quick pane also shown at the top of the notification pane.

Emergency info direct on your lock screen

This features is given into iOS devices long time ago, and now it is included into Android Nougat devices too. The main idea behind this is, if someone picks your phone in an emergency, they know who to call even if they don't have access to your PIN.

android nougat features

How to set Emergency details
  • Go to System Settings
  • Navigate to Users menu
  • Ta on Emergency information
  • Fill the required details
  • You can set one or multiple contacts for Emergency info

The emergency info you just saved can easily be find out by someone just by tapping emergency under Lock screen PIN dialer.

Improved Data saving options

There are lots of options already available for data restrictions into Android devices running on lower Android versions, now with Android Nougat better data savings options are given in Data menu into System Settings.

android nougat features

It works similar as Doze do for Apps for power saving. You can set what apps will send and receive in background when your screen is turned off or set to data saving mode.

Hassle free smooth updates

android nougat features

This is the biggest change given into Android Nougat where Updates are automatically downloaded and installed in background. Google promised regular updates for Android 7.0 Nougat. Now you are not required to reboot your device while updating to another Android versions. This features is only available to latest Android Nougat devices, but According to Google using it older Nexus devices are also capable for faster update downloads.

Directly reply to notifications in Android Nougat

Before Android 7.0 there is option given to reply the message but you need to first tap on reply and then allowed to type message but in Android Nougat no additional ask for reply, you can directly reply to any message from notifications. Now reply now button wouldn't jump you into their apps.

android nougat features

To proper support for this feature, apps itself have this options installed. Google hangouts and SMS messenger app has already given support for this direct reply feature.

Many other emoji added 

android nougat features

Emoji adds extra value to your message, there are lots of other emoji added in the Android Nougat and now it reached more than 1500 in total. If you still stuck in the images, then its your fault. New added emoji include shark, bronze, silver and gold medals.

More control over Notifications in Android 7 Nougat

Notifications were never been of equal priority, some always stick to the top while others pushed to bottom, now your can change and prioritize the settings for the apps if you need to.

android nougat features

To set the priorities you first need to activate the hidden System UI tuner menu, for this tap and hold the Gear button given at the top of quick settings in the notification pane which was used to direct to System settings if not held for much time. The feature was also available in the Android Marshmallow , now it got improved and added power notification control options into Other menu.

By turning on the priority settings you can prioritize the notifications from 0 to 5, apps with priority 5 have permissions to access your whole screen, and with 0 priority even the notifications from that app are not allowed in the notification pane. The and hold the notification or change permissions from the app settings to set the priority. Choose A button rather let the apps choose their priority itself.
