Google is known for setting new trends in the mobile technology. And with the latest release of Android 5.0 Lollipop, Google has introduced quite a many trends in the mobile technology. The latest update of the new operating system, which was announced for the first time in June, is now available for the developers. And, we are loving the new OS! We think that Android 5.0 Lollipop will give a tough competition to other mobile operating systems. In this blog post we will tell everything new and refreshing Android 5.0 Lollipop has to offer.
The first and the most obvious change we found in the updated OS are the fresh aesthetics. Everything from setup menu to the app drawer, notification shade, animation and icons looks new and pleasing. The significant shift in the design will be evident on Nexus devices because most of the manufacturers use custom skins to change the look of the operating system. Another feature worthy to notice here is the dynamic new touch experience you will see on your Android device in the form of a transparent gray shading on the screens that moves as you move your fingers on the screen. The Material Design makes the new Android look fabulously refreshing without losing the familiar Android experience that we all are pretty used to.
Another significant change we noticed in is in the way the notifications panel functions in the new Android 5.0 Lollipop. So, you can now view and respond to messages directly from your lock screen. Incoming calls won’t interrupt what you are doing on your device. You will enjoy the freedom to choose to answer a call or ignore it to continue doing what you are doing. You also have the freedom to hide sensitive content and prioritize or turn-off the app notifications completely.
The new Android OS comes with a longer battery life. The battery saver features now extend the time for which the devise can still be in use by 90 long minutes. When you charge the device, you will be notified about the estimated time left to fully charge the device as well as the estimated time left on your device before you charge it again.
Keeping your stuff safe and sound will become easier with Android 5.0 Lollipop. The new devices will come with encryption automatically turned on for protecting the data stored in any lost or stolen devices. SELinux will keep a close check on applications against possible vulnerabilities and malware.
Another feature added to the new OS is the device sharing feature. Just like iOS 8, the Android users will be able to enjoy more flexible sharing with family and friends. You can choose what you want and the information that you want to share with your friends and family when sharing your device with them. Screen pinning will make that possible.
There are many more exciting features that are still to be explored in the new Android 5.0 Lollipop. Wait for the final release for your smartphone devices and we are sure you will be surprised with the new updated OS. Till then just wait and read all about it!
