Android M stands for Android Marshmallow

Just a while back Google had teased us with names for Android M, ie what M
would stand for. Some of the names were Marshmallow, Mars Bars, Mango Lassi to
name a few. Interestingly Mango Lassi a very Indian name was included maybe as a
tribute to Sundar Pichai taking over. But well almost all Indian fans knew that
it won’t be labelled Mango Lassi.

 

List of suggested names were:- 

Milkshake
Malt Ball
Moon Pie
Mocha
Madeleine
Muffin
Macaroon
Macadamia Brittle
Marshmallow
Meringue
M & M
Marzipan
Mango Lassi
Mild Duds
Mousse
Maple Syrup
Mentos
Molten Chocolate Cake

 

Finally Google has announced that Android M stands for Android Marshmallow
and it will Android 5.2 and not Android 6. People initially thought that Android
M will Android  but it was later confirmed to be Android 5.2 via leaked video.
So M stands for Marshmallow and a statue showing the Android holding a
marshmallow has been installed at the Google Android Garden.

 

 

Android M will officially launch in October along with two Nexus devices one
from Huawei and other from LG.. Rumoured features include fingerprint scanners
etc. So keep your fingers crossed
