Android 5.0 Lollipop

Google has officially revealed the name of the next major release of Android. Android 5.0 will be, from now on, known as Android Lollipop. At the time it was being announced, my Google Plus feed was filled with Lollipops, Androids dancing, People dancing (GIF) and whatnots. Most of us already know what Android 5.0 has to offer. It is a major update and according to Google, the sweetest Android yet. It has a revamped UI which they named as Material Design. This version of the platform will also brought to not just smartphones or tablets but it extends to Android Wear, Android TV, and Android Auto. Everything I have said here were already previewed in this year's Google I/O so if you missed that, click here.

So, when is it coming to your device? Well, if you are not using a Nexus device then you'd have to wait for your OEM's decision on when and on to what device they will be releasing the update. For those owning a Nexus device, expect Android 5.0 Lollipop to arrive in the coming weeks. Android Lollipop pushed to the Nexus 4, 5, 7, 10, and to all Google Play Edition devices.
