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:- 

Malt Ball
Moon Pie
Macadamia Brittle
M & M
Mango Lassi
Mild Duds
Maple Syrup
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
