With technology taking rapid strides forward, updates and upgrades keep flowing in every other day.
Major upgrades take some time and are now as frequent as once a year.
The biggest updates for Android user is the version upgrade, and we’re already at v5.0! Google every year comes out with an update for the Android OS which helps them update the users’ Operating System of the phone.
They also ensure that every year they update it and give it a name of a sweet dish.
They began with the Alpha and Beta, then came the Cupcake, Donut, Eclair, Froyo, Gingerbread, Honeycomb, Ice Cream Sandwich, Jellybean, the recently released Kitkat, and the latest, the Android Lollipop. After a series of sweet updates and upgrades, google is now developing a new update, the Android M.
Now as weird as it may sound, the reality is that less than 20% of the current devices as of now are using the Google’s Android 5.0 Lollipop upgrade and approximately 30% are still not even on KitKat.
The biggest question that is put forward here is that is Google right in coming out with these updates which affect only a few users with the premium phones which can actually be able to handle these massive updates? Is the timing right for Android?
The release date of the Android M OS is expected to be somewhere in the month of December of this year, and probably on the Christmas Day. The company has been planning it as a thanksgiving surprise or a Christmas surprise and is expected to launch it on one of the two days.
The ‘M’ in Android M could be anything from Milky Way to Muffin to Marshmallow to M&M to Mars. Google’s obsession with sweets seems to continue as they might end up naming it one of the few mentioned above as they are the most popular sweets with M. Muffin seems a politically correct name as of now.
The current reports also say that M will feature a new and improved support for wearable tech as it is expected that Android wear is going to be the next big thing in the world of technology and the future will be completely different from what we see now in the next two years to come.
