Google’s Android L OS announced and released to developer channel
We told you how Google was going to unveil the Android 5.0 Lollipop at it’s I/O conference today.
Part of what we expected happened, part did not as Google went on to announce a new version of Android but refused to give full details (name and version number) of the release.
Android L is the new OS and it’s already available for developers. We still expect the platform to be named Android 5.0 Lollipop when it’s finally available to the user channel.
Even though we can neither touch nor smell it (for now), here’s are some changes the Android L brings over the last version, Android 4.4 KitKat:
- Runtime environment is based on ART. ART supports 64-bit chips, ARM, x86 and MIPS CPUs and is faster.
- Power management is better and battery life is way higher
- There’s the Battery Saver mode which tunes down the CPU (and radio if you like) to bring hours of extra battery time on your Android device
- Google Fit will work with your phone sensors (and smartwatch — if you have one) to keep you fit
- Notifications are now available on the lockscreen
- Scrolling is now smoother as GUI has been tweaked to 60 frames per second
- General new design
For now, Android L will be used by users in beta mode (Google didn’t mention beta at the unveiling event) until Google decides what to name it and allow it to start seeding to devices.
