This story follows on quite nicely from yesterday’s article, wherein we discovered – thanks to developer chatter – that Android L might be coming to the two-year-old Google Nexus 4.
Here we’re hearing developers openly discussing a little something called Android M, and the “experimental” features thereof.
Of course, Android L, first detailed by Google back in June, still hasn’t been unleashed on the public yet. Heck, even the name is still up in the air, with some suggesting Lemon Meringue Pie, and others – me – touting Lion as an option.
As such, we hadn’t given a great deal of thought to the next next version of Android, but it’s very much a thing in the developer community.
The spot was made by MYCE, in two developer discussions that admittedly went way over my head (by all means click on the blue for more info). But it’s interesting to hear Android M being discussed nonetheless.
Mention the first: “Not cherry-picking this into limp-dev, this is an experimental ‘M’ feature.”
And again: “The first Android release this will show up in is probably ‘M.’”
With Google tending to roll out new versions of Android in October, it’ll likely be more than a year before Android M becomes a reality for Joe Public, but for some, it’s already here.
