Google Releases Android Lollipop

After Apple released the new iPhone 6 and iOS 8, which you can read about here, Google released a newer version of its flagship phone, the Nexus, and their operating system Android. This version of Android is called Lollipop (continuing with the tradition of sweets). I will discuss some of the new features so keep reading.

Animations:
Apps will have the ability to float over over information panels. Which means that notifications will look more visually appealing.

Notifications:
Speaking of notifications, there is a “heads up” feature which is if you’re playing a game and you get a notification, it won’t interrupt you, you will be able to just swipe it away.

Shorter charging time:
There is a new battery saver feature that will extend your battery life up to 90 minutes, and through the battery usage feature, you will be able to see how much time you have before you need to charge again.

Security:
You know when you want to show something on your phone but are afraid people will go through your contents? Now there is a solution: guest user mode, that will keep the things that you want private and only show what you want.
