Tomorrow will start a conference for developers Google I/O 2015, which will very likely be a host to present the next version of the mobile operating system Android, codenamed Android M, which later this year will replace the Android Lollipop. Hiroshi Lockheimer, vice president of engineering at Android, confirmed that tomorrow they are really going to present Android M, but other than that, he told a far more interesting details about the future of this “green robot.”
According to Hiroshi Lockheimer, Google will begin to annually release a new version of Android. So from now on a major update to Android will be released each year. This means that history will not repeat that in 2012 we presented the Android 4.1 Jelly Bean, a few months later – Android 4.2 Jelly Bean, and in 2013 – Android 4.3 Jelly Bean. Now the company will present an annual major update to the new version, release throughout the year minor updates. This means that tomorrow we will show Android M, 2016 – Android N, 2017 – Android O and so on.
As expected, Android M work will be done on the bugs after the release of Android Lollipop, so expecting lots of new features is not an option anymore.
