Unsurprisingly, Google developers are working on Android “M”

Google Developers
Android L is coming, we haven’t seen the final features, or look of the next version, but it’s coming and unsurprisingly it’s a little too late to add new features. With that in mind it’s logical that Google developers have begun talking about the next version of Android and website MyCE has seen a couple of references.

There’s a couple of features which make reference to Android M, notably change 107689 ‘Update protobuf library from 2.3 to 2.6’ a change which looks at the proto-buffers, a way that Google interchanges data between Android and their servers, and change 107482 ‘liblog: logcat: colored output’ a change to Logcat.

Google hasn’t even announced a version number or official name for Android L – Lamington? – but the speculation can now run rampant on what the version # and official name for Android M will be. Suggestions?

Dan is a die-hard Android fan. Some might even call him a lunatic. He's been an Android user since Android was a thing, and if there's a phone that's run Android, chances are he owns it (his Nexus collection is second-to-none) or has used it.

Dan's dedication to Ausdroid is without question, and he has represented us at some of the biggest international events in our industry including Google I/O, Mobile World Congress, CES and IFA.

I could easily see it being Macaron… the vibrant colours would suit a statue on the google lawn.
But if we were to see another promotion then it would have to be… McFlurry

Meringue came to mind first. Jazz suggested Marshmallow. That has a better chance I think. Please not Mars Bar. They hurt my teeth for some reason and I just know I will buy so many if they do another promotion…
