At its 2014 I/O conference, Google surprised everyone by unveiling the newest version of Android called L. It is touted as Google’s most ambitious update to Android yet. Unsurprisingly, this new version is expected to bring significant changes in terms of design, performance as well as security. Google has reportedly added several new features in its latest version of Android L that will not only work on smartphones & tablets, but also on wearable products like the Moto 360 and other Android gadgets like Android TV. One of the most attractive features of the all new Android L OS is its Material Design, which makes it bolder, more colorful and animated than previous versions of Android.
Unlike the previous versions of Android, L will run on a more robust ART (Android Run Time), which means it would be twice as fast as its predecessors. Moreover, L is expected to bring some serious improvements in battery life of your device via a feature called Project Volta. According to Google, this feature can give an additional 90 minutes of juice when your handset is low on battery! BLE Peripheral Mode, advanced camera capabilities, productive apps, PC like graphics, and 64-bit CPU are a few other exciting features that will come in Android L.
