Lollipop Forest

Rumors started swirling yesterday that Lollipop was indeed going to be the name, and it appears that those hoping for candy on a stick for the name of Android L have been granted their wish. As Google has announced this morning, Android L is indeed Lollipop and will be shipping with the Nexus 6 and Nexus 9 in the coming weeks.

Lollipop hasn’t changed much since it was first announced as “Android L” way back at Google I/O. The software is still focusing on unifying design across applications with its new “Material” guidelines, and offers other features like more control over notifications and a new “battery saver” feature which could bring drastic improvements depending on your situation.

Lollipop is made for a world where moving throughout the day means interacting with a bunch of different screens—from phones and tablets to TVs. With more devices connecting together, your expectation is that things just work. With Lollipop, it’s easier than ever to pick up where you left off, so the songs, photos, apps, and even recent searches from one of your Android devices can be immediately enjoyed across all the other ones.
