showcased back in May at Google I/O 2015, Android M will be properly released
later this year, most likely in October, when new Nexus smartphones are also
expected to be unveiled (one made
by LG, and another one made by Huawei).
You can see the video
from here .
While we heard that Android M's
version number would be 5.2, we
still don't know what its final name will be. However, we might soon find out.
A video released today by Googlers Nat and Lo (who not only work at Google, but
also "make videos about different Google stuff") is suggesting that
the final name of Android M will be revealed this month.
The video is of a song which reminds us of all the
names that previous Android versions had, starting with Cupcake, and ending
with Lollipop. It then goes on to list various possible names for Android M
(including Marshmallows, Milkshake, Muffin, Maple Syrup, Marzipan, Macaroon, M&M,
Moon Pie, and so on), finally asking: "what's M gonna be?" It looks
like we will get the answer next week, when the next episode of Nat and Lo's
series will be released. Until then, let us know what you think the final name
of Android M will be, okay?
