Android 5.0 Lollipop

Google has formally announced next version of Android called as Android 5.0 Lollipop. The update was announced last month but it was released for developers only. But now Google has announced Android Lollipop for public release.

Google in a blog post, said that the Android 5.0 Lollipop update will be rolled out for Nexus devices in coming weeks. However the update was scheduled to launch this week but the release has been delayed until coming weeks.

Android Lollipop comes with host of new features which includes following:

Material Design:

A bold, colorful, and responsive UI design for consistent, intuitive experiences across all your devices

  • Responsive, natural motion, realistic lighting and shadows, and familiar visual elements make it easier to navigate your device
  • Vivid new colors, typography, and edge-to-edge imagery help to focus your attention


New ways to control when and how you receive messages – only get interrupted when you want to be

  • View and respond to messages directly from your lock screen. Includes the ability to hide sensitive content for these notifications
  • For fewer disruptions, turn on Priority mode via your device’s volume button so only certain people and notifications get through. Or schedule recurring downtime like 10pm to 8am when only Priority notifications can get through
  • With Lollipop, incoming phone calls won’t interrupt what you’re watching or playing. You can choose to answer the call or just keep doing what you’re doing
  • Control the notifications triggered by your apps; hide sensitive content and prioritize or turn off the app’s notifications entirely
  • More intelligent ranking of notifications based on who they’re from and the type of communication. See all your notifications in one place by tapping the top of the screen

Android 5.0 Lollipop update will be released for Nexus 4, Nexus 5, Nexus 7(2012), Nexus 7(2013) and Nexus 10 devices. The Android 5 Lollipop update will be released through Over the Air update in coming weeks.
