In the description for a Google I/O session titled “Android for Work”, Google has inadvertently revealed Android M. There’s no further mention of what this new OS will bring, but it’s more than enough to pique our interest about the next major version of Android.
Google announced Android 5.0 Lollipop (then known as Android L) during the I/O event last year, so this move makes sense. At this point, it seems like Google isn’t even trying to keep this a secret, so we can expect the company to be pretty open about the features that this new OS will bring.
As to what the ‘M’ actually stands for is anyone’s guess at the moment, but it has been said that Google will go with ‘Muffin’. But that announcement will not be made until the OS is public, which could be sometime between October and November. We’re also curious to see if this will be known as Android 6.0 or Android 5.5. The latter makes sense given that Android Lollipop has barely managed to cross the 10% barrier, despite being in circulation for more than six months.
What do you expect from Google’s upcoming Android M operating system?
