It is that time of year — the world is awaiting the upcoming Google I/O annual developer conference with great anticipation. The Google I/O conference will take place between May 28th and 29th at San Francisco’s Moscone Center. Previous conferences have announced large projects including: Android, Chrome OS, Android Wear, Google Glass and self-driving cars. So what will 2015 reveal?
While we await the full details, we are left wondering: What will be announced? What is in store for Android this coming year? There is so much excitement and buzz in the air right now. With all top secret ventures, there are always rumours, and the Google I/O 2015 is no exception to the rule. The latest rumour going around right now includes a possible sneak peak at the latest version of Google’s mobile operating system, Android M.
Android Marshmallow ????
What is Android M?
Some of you may be remembering the launch of Lollipop. Actually, some of you may not only remember the launch, you may still be waiting for it to be implemented on your device. Well, technology just continues to move forward, and Android M was recently spotted as a work session description on the Google I/O website before it was pulled from the page. Was this an intentional slip up? Did they publish the work session to get people talking before removing it from the website? Ohh…the excitement.
The screenshot of the description was published on the Android Police website. Although we don’t get much detail on the latest release it does say: “brings power of Android to all kinds of workplaces.” This can mean so many things, but it looks like Android is planning to ensure that there is a seamless transition between mobile and desktop, enabling more flexibility for businesses to work mobile.
Last year at Google I/O 2014, we saw the debut of Android L, which was then named Lollipop. So just for fun, what do you think the M in Android M stands for?
Our vote is for Marshmallow. We came to this conclusion by asking a bunch of kids to name a word starting with M that has something to do with candy. Will the kids be right? Roll on, Google I/O 2015.
