The next version of Google’s Android mobile operating system now has an official name. It will be called Marshmallow. This version of the Android software was first unveiled during the tech giant’s annual I/O conference held in May earlier this year. For lack of an official name at that time, news sources and bloggers had nicknamed the system Android M.
Google officially unveiled Android Pay during its I/O conference held at San Francisco, USA. Android Pay is a new mobile payment system that is native to the Android mobile operating system, which means that any mobile device running on a compatible Android version enabled with Android Pay (Android 4.4 KitKat, and most likely the upcoming Android M as well as future versions) can be used to facilitate contactless payment transactions.
During its I/O developer conference held in the city of San Francisco, Google officially revealed the developer preview of the latest version of its Android mobile operating system. Dubbed Android M for now (its full name will eventually be unveiled upon its wide release some time this fall), this newest iteration of the world's most popular smartphone OS comes with a number of new features.
Some of the highlighted new features include the following:
Google is fond of picking candy nicknames for its Android mobile operating system. The version that will follow the current Android Lollipop is expected to have a name that starts with the letter M, but whatever the final nickname will be, it might as well stand for "workplace."
That is probably what Google fans were thinking when they saw the lineup of events for the tech giant's I/O conference (which is slated to happen from May 27th until May 29th this year). In a post for a session entitled "Android for Work Update,” the first sentence apparently stated that Google will be “bringing the power of Android to all kinds of workplaces."
