The Android Lollipop has been around for almost a year, which means that the next major update by Google will be available sometime soon.
The Google I/O
As the Google I/O is all set to take place this week, we may get to hear some news regarding the all new Android M. That being said, it is unlikely that the final version will be made available at present, as Google will only give a sneak peak to users regarding what is to come.
As always, Google is picking a treat-based name for its latest version of the Android. You don’t have to be a genius to know where Android is going after Jellybean, KitKat, and Lollipop. For the time being, it’s Android M, which could be Muffins or Munchies, so let the guessing games begin!
What to Expect
In the lead-up to the Google I/O, the tech giants confirmed this description at the Android for Work Update event:
‘Android M is bringing the power of Android to all kinds of workplaces.’
Android M will look to improve battery life by optimizing background tasks and processes. While this is not new, it’s a much needed feature as the Android Lollipop is certainly a battery killer. Reports are also emerging that Google will announce a fingerprint scan feature that allows you to access your apps without using passwords.
Google is currently working on introducing the next generation of smart appliances which may include light bulbs to refrigerators. This will further help the branding prospects of Android that will be deployed as a universal operating system for your home. In other words, it’s like the optimized version of Android, just like Android Wear.
Last but not the least; Android M will unify all the notifications from all the platforms. So when you see an alert on your computer, it will disappear from your phone. Small change, yes, but quite useful nonetheless!
