Google spent a great of time telling us what was so great about Android M at Google I/O. Surely Lollipop has gotten better with recent updates, but Android M intends to take things further, and we’ve covered most of what you’ll receive in a recent hands-on video. At the moment this new version of the OS is still a beta for developers, and today it gets an extra polish.
Google has just announced its first update to the developer preview of Android M. The changes are mostly internal though, as the company claims the update includes the latest platform code and near-final APIs, something that developers need in order to test their apps on Android M. This update also includes improvements to Wi-Fi and Bluetooth location performance, USB connectivity behavior, and contacts/identity permissions. Google also mentions that it has refined the Nexus system images, and has also brought improvements to the emulator as well.
Just keep in mind that this is still a developer preview. Consumers won’t be able to get a hold of Android M until the fall, and that’s also dependent on which phone you’re using.
