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:-
M & M
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
