Space : Android Lollipop
Android Lollipop 5.0
Android Lollipop is released , and it's brought some changes, with Sundar Pichai, Senior Vice President at Google, claiming lollipop to be one of the biggest upgrades to Android yet.
The obvious change in Lollipop is the fresh design , called Material. It changes nearly every single thing about how Android looks, from the setup menu, app drawer and notification shade to animations and icons. Even the on screen back, home and recent app buttons look different they're now simple shapes.
Another important design theme is cards, where notifications, the app drawer, and text in many apps are set on their own card that's then laid on top of a different background. Cards were made popular in Google Now, and now they're a bigger part of Android's style.
Multitasking gets a makeover in Lollipop. Instead of recent apps, a new menu called Overview shows apps that are running in the background as a stack of cards.
Lollipop adds a new Battery Saver mode, which clocks down the CPU, limits vibrations, reduces the ambient light and turns off background data.
Security is enhanced as well.
Support for more than 68 languages. Google added Basque, Bengali, Burmese, Chinese (Hong Kong), Galician, Icelandic, Kannada, Kyrgyz, Macedonian, Malayalam, Marathi, Nepali, Sinhalese, Tamil and Telugu in this release.
As claimed by Sundar Pichai ,Lollipop is the biggest Android update yet, featuring a pleasant new design and loads of smart features that enhance the user experience.
