Having only announced Android 5.0 Lollipop a matter of months ago with a roll out now getting under way, the team behind the Google mobile OS is already looking towards the future and their next anticipated update,
Two reliable unnamed sources told AndroidPIT that Android 5.1 could be launched by the end of February 2015. The update is forecasted to be quite a hefty one and will include with it several new and interesting features.
AndroidPIT listed the changelog as follows:
- Silent mode added after missing on Android 5.0
- General improvements in system stability
- Improved RAM management
- Fixes for sudden app closures
- Improved battery management
- Excessive consumption of network devices when used Wi-Fi fixed
- Issues with wireless connections fixed
- Problems with Okay Google function solved
- Notifications problems solved
- Some sound problems experience by certain devices fixed
- Other improvements and changes
- Changes in the Material Design colour palette (after users complaints, possibly for a higher version though)
There’s been little information as yet from either insider regarding functionality but there’s still time for them to develop this before it is due to be unveiled. The update seems to be predominantly designed to iron out some of the flaws and issues discovered upon install of Android 5.0. So either way the update will be priceless in improving the software even further!
