It has been a long time since we have heard rumors about Android 5.0, how it will be called and what innovations it will bring to its user. The only thing that we have known about the next generation of Android was that it will be redesigned and with a new look called as Material Design. Only in 15 October Google announced officially Android 5.0 and called it Lollipop. Sundar Pichai, head of Android, proclaiming it to be one of the biggest upgrades to Android yet.
The big news for Android Lollipop is that the way how it looks will be different. The new Material Design is Strange in that it bucks a trend at the moment. It is based on making every animation, every shadow, every ripple look real which is something that almost all the brands are shying away from. Google says that this feels more intuitive, which means that will be shadow gradients and 3D tiles that slide over one another and most importantly, access for developers to use this for themselves on their apps.
This idea is great, removing the fragmented way how Android looks and brings consistency to the app world no matter what device you’re using, is something cool. Google intention is to create an expansive ecosystem that allows you to start a song to one device then move to another room and pick up another Android device and continue where you left off.
Unfortunately Android 5.0 Lollipo isn’t released officially for a lot of devices. You can experience Lollipop feature only if you have one Nexus device like Nexus 5 or few other devices that support Lollipop. Even for this devices Android 5.0 is released as a developer preview. It is launched only for developers to test their apps, since Lollipop is a revolution in Android World. It’s not suggested to use Lollipop as your primary ROM.
If you like it too much, almost all like it, since it has a nice look and a lot of features and cool apps. If you don’t have a device that support the developer preview of Android Lollipop, you can download it’s launcher, theme and almost all the apps from here. You can download the apps one by one including the home launcher which will make you Android devices looks like you have installed Android 5.0 Lollipop. So Give it a try, it would be cool experiencing the power that only Google know how to bring it to us.
