Android M will be shown at Google IO 2015

Following with tradition, Google will announce Android’s newest operating system version at its annual IO conference this month, an alleged goof on its event page revealed.

While this information hasn’t been officially disclosed by Google, The Verge reports that a session description for the conference briefly surfaced and specifically mentioned “Android M.” The document referenced has since been removed from the Google IO website, but Android Police has posted a screengrab of it.

Android 5.0, or Android Lollipop, was first known as “Android L” when it was announced in 2014. Despite Lollipop only making it to 10% of Android users, Google appears to be full-steam-ahead with its OS development.

Although the IO descriptions have been tight-lipped about the details, a few cryptic hints have been dropped. The “Android at Work” session summary says that Android M “brings the power of Android to all kinds of workplaces.” With Google constantly expanding into new territories, it sounds like Android M will focus on bringing Google’s power to businesses.

The Verge also reports that a different session focused mostly on improving the new notifications system that was introduced in Lollipop. Yet another session focused on a new feature called “Voice Access,” suggesting that Google is working toward the ability to control all components of Android apps, moving well beyond the capability of “OK Google.”

Google I/O starts on May 28th at 9:30am PST or 12:30pm EST.
