Google to announce Android M and Voice Access at I/O 2015 this month

By May 7th, 2015 AT 4:20 PM

Google’s I/O developer conference is soon going be held in San Francisco this month and the event is going to be a platform for many new announcements, including the forthcoming version of Android operating system succeeding Lollipop. As we know, Google is going in Alphabetical order when naming the OS and after L, there comes “M”. So, the forthcoming version, as of now, is being dubbed as “Android M”. It could be Marshmallow or Macaroon, but that’s just our guess.

Google I/O 2015

Although the company has not made any official announcements regarding what’s going to be launched at the conference, but as per the public description of the I/O schedule, it mentions Android M. The Verge, found out that, “Android at Work” states that Android M “brings power of Android to all kinds of workplaces.” However, the reference was removed from the site shortly. We assume that to be Google’s way of teasing the upcoming launches.

As a matter of fact, Google has been pretty active in launching fresh OS versions every year, however the adoption of these updates is moving at turtle speed. For instance, Android 5.0 Lollipop, still runs on merely 10 percent of Android devices, which is menial when compared to other OS versions.

Moreover, Google is also planning to launch “Voice Access” feature at the conference. The feature would enable users to control their apps through voice commands. It would be integrated with Google Now and developers would be required to integrate it with their apps so that users can access it via voice commands. Also, it is not clear if this new feature will be specific to Android M or it will also work on older versions.

New os , google seems to be in a hurry. First of all let lollipop gain some ground, people use it find its drawbacks then think to recitify the same and issue new os if it requires dramatic change. With only 10 % people using lollipop, what drawbacks would they have known. Idiots.
