Following the dessert theme the next version of Android will be called Marshmallow.
With no other details released it has left us are wondering what kind of changes we’ll see the in the next Android landmark.
Lollipop 5.1.1 is the most current version of Android available and has been one of the most widely adapted Android OS’s to date. Prior to Lollipop, the previous 4.0 Android OS’s spanned across several releases – Ice Cream Sandwich, Jelly Bean and KitKat – and ran through minor iterative updates until 5.0.
Seeing as Marshmallow will represent a benchmark version (Android 6.0) we can only speculate that Google’s next Android release will bring some major changes.
Personally I’m just guessing that we won’t see anything that groundbreaking excluding a handful of visual upgrades, but then again Google (or should I say Alphabet) has been known to surprise its Android user base from time to time.
While we wait for more details soak in this epic upcoming loading screen
