It hasn’t been long since Google first unveiled its brand new and upcoming Android L operating system to the world. And that’s natural considering the KitKat has been around already for quite some time now. Android L was first announced at Google I/O 2014 that took place last month. In fact, the developer preview for the same was released the following day. The OS, that’s coming later this year, has already generated a wave of excitement among all Android users across the world. Although it isn’t the previously touted Android 5, but it seems like Android L is the next generation of Android (for the time being). With the arrival of “L,” a host of new changes were also introduced by Google. In fact, according to Sundar Pichai, head of Android, it is set to be one of the biggest Android updates to date.
The Android L is also set to offer a radical new design with 5000 new APIs. And while it is already available for developer preview, the “L” will be contextually aware of its surrounding, with voice being a major input source.
Remember how in KitKat you had the options for auto-rotating the screen or even use notification light (Pulse) to your advantage? Well, with Android L now set to arrive this fall, expect things to change around a bit with similar options how placed in a separate menu. There’s also a new check box for facilitating the adaptive brightness.
