Google could unveil the next version of Android, ‘Google Android M’ at I/O 2015
Google is likely to unveil the next version and the successor to its Android Lollipop operating system at the Google I/O 2015. Dubbed Android M as per Google norm of naming the operating system after alphabets, Google is to unveil it at the annual developers conference starting from May 28th at San Francisco, California.
Google has released the schedule for the Google I/O 2015 and it could be preview Android M for developers, at the two-day event scheduled from May 28.
The Google tracking website, 9to5Google reported the news with screenshots from the I/O conference webpage though Google hasn’t officially announced the next version of Android. The reference spotted by 9to5Google under the Android for Work Update Session reads,
“Android M is bringing the power of Android to all kinds of workplaces. This opens huge new markets for hundreds of millions of devices to workers at small business, deskless workers, logistics and warehousing jobs; all be empowered by adoption of Android devices at Work.”
Strangely the the webpage has deleted the reference to Android M after 9to5Google and other websites mentioned it. Announcing Android M even before Android Lollipop has been fully integrated in the Android universe is just too early. Android M will be 10th update to Google’s open source operating system which started with Android Alpha in 2006.
The news may start a flurry of activity across the Internet for what ‘M’ should or could stand for. Which dessert do you think Google should name Android M after? Our favourite is marshmallow followed by macaroon, milkshake, mousse and muffin.
