Android L is now out in the market and it comprises a bit of new features. Read on for all the information on when you can see Android L on your device.
The next version of the Android OS has been termed by many names. It's been called Android L, Android 5.0, Android Lollipop, Android Licorice and Lemon Meringue Pie. But what are the vital features that come with this brand new mobile OS from Google?
It has been discovered at the 2014 I/O Developers Conference that the official name is Lemon Meringue Pie, according to IB Times Australia. It has been confirmed that the OS will be used in the forthcoming Nexus 8 and it is speculated for release around November or December of this year.
Android Pit has released a series of informative news that they have gathered about Lemon Meringue Pie. Firstly, it is much faster and will last longer than previous models.
The user interface will be based on the "Material Design" of Google, which features a pleasing design with wide use of 3D views and shadows to make the elements more distinct from each other. All the new simulations have been squeezed, such as transition animations between apps, touch feedback and the system font.
The statements have been placed on the lock screen and the system highlights them based on the frequency of your interface with them. You can also take another action without leaving the app that you are currently using.
It can interrelate with an Android smartwatch to keep your phone locked or use the smartwatch to set your phone to spontaneously unlock when it hears your voice or it detects that you are at home.
The Dalvik runtime has been replaced by the ART runtime, which doubles the speed of Dalvik as it supports the latest 64-bit processor. It compiles apps at first install that consents for faster apps launching later.
Battery life is extensive as well. Lemon Meringue Pie will also keep devices safe with Google Play Services dispensing six weekly updates for system patches and latest malware definitions.
It also has a kill-switch that will remotely wipe or disable a stolen or lost device.
