Hey, look at that, the next version of Android being mentioned in an official Google I/O session description. Yep, Android M is coming at Google I/O at the end of this month. Seriously, a new version of Android is already here, even though Lollipop is only on 10% of Android devices. (more…)
That’s right, in the latest Android 5.0 “Lollipop” preview build that went live today, Google brought back the “clear all” notifications button. If you weren’t running either of the previous Android L previews, then you likely do not care at all. However, if you did, you already realize how big of a deal this is. Having to individually clear away 10+ notifications after not looking at your phone for a lengthy period of time is not fun.
Thank you, Google. Thank you for bringing it back.
Maybe next, next, next time, Oreo.
The teasing begins!
Lemon Meringue Pie? Lava Cake? Lady Finger? Lemon Drop? Even Licorice makes several appearances. Who didn’t show up? Lollipop, of course.
The designer of the Googleplex Android statues trolled Google+ yesterday with licorice. Developers contributing to AOSP have for months been referring to the next version of Android as LMP, presumably “Lemon Meringue Pie.” In light of a new accidental leak, though, both references to possible Android L names appear to have been red herrings. Before being promptly removed, a device screenshot posted by a Google developer in the Chromium issue tracker revealed a lollipop-shaped debugging icon.
