On October 15, 2014, Google launched Android 5.0 Lollipop.

Android 5.0 Lollipop is the first major update of Google's mobile OS since Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich, the Android version that was introduced on October 19, 2011.

The new version is simpler, more intuitive and universal, regardless the device you use.

Android Lollipop makes more use of 3D effects and shadows, has a new keyboard, new quick settings and a 'do not disturb' feature. It has a new design which is called 'material design'. Google gives the new Gmail app as an example.

Furthermore, Android lollipop creates seamless transitions between apps and windows.

The best way to explore the Lollipop features is to go and visit the Android website.
Here you can find all the necessary information on the new Lollipop update.

To get a first impression, I'll give you a shortlist of some of the new features (Android 5.0 Lollipop in a nutshell):

- Material design
- Personal notifications
- Longer battery life
- Enhanced security
- Device sharing with family & friends
- New 'quick' settings
- Better & faster connectivity
- Etc.

Android 5.0 Lollipop can be found on the Nexus 6 and Nexus 9. In the following weeks, this update will also finds its way into other Nexus devices and the recent smartphones from Motorola.

The other manufacturers will also follow, but it is still too early to tell when this will happen.

Stay tuned for more information!
