Ever since Google made a short preview of their upcoming operating system in June at the I/O event, tech lovers and developers have been waiting patiently for its official release. The great news is that the wait is over and Google unveiled the latest version of their OS called Android 5.0 Lollipop. Its sweet name matches perfectly the sweeter specification.
The first thing someone notices about the new 5.0 Lollipop is its appearance: it’s cleaner, it has a flatter design and best of all, the new interface and the animations on it look more fluid.
The new Android 5.0 Lollipop has a new lock screen with new specifications. For example, users can view their messages and reply directly from the lock screen. That sounds awesome because it save a lot of time and someone had to do it already. Another great specification about the Android 5.0 Lollipop is that the notifications float on top of the users’ activity and they can respond to it without leaving what they were doing. This means that the new Android 5.0 Lollipop has a better control when it comes to Notifications.
Google’s new Android OS comes with a kill switch and a better security. The “kill switch” feature allows the users to delete all the data from their phone immediately. Users have to put in their Google log in information in order to complete resetting their phone.
Android 5.0 Lollipop comes with a new security option called the SELinux, which will better protect all the phone’s applications from malware and other threats.
The new Android 5.0 Lollipop has a new Messenger app, of which Google said to be a simplified version of Hangouts. Both apps will coexist and Hangouts will not be replaced by the new Messenger app.
The new Android 5.0 Lollipop will also feature a more secure way of sharing files. Users can share files with members of their family without the risk of displaying sensitive content. Android 5.0 Lollipop comes with a better life battery, extending it to up to 90 minutes.
