This allows Google to dictate the minimum hardware requirements for manufacturers around the world. The first devices will arrive in India with brands like Micromax, Spice and Karbonn at under $100.
“Android L” Developer Preview:
Android’s upcoming L release features a new cross platform UI called Material Design, which offers app developers with precise tools to make customized typography, grid and colour changes.
Android L’s preview also teases lock screen notifications & context-based authentication features. (for example, if I am wearing a paired Bluetooth watch while using my phone, it won’t prompt me for a pattern lock pass).
Google also showed off Project Volta to help identify battery discharge patterns to improve overall power consumption. This new Android L update allows us to unlock our phone if using context and location, Chromebooks can also be unlocked if we have our phone with us.
Material Design also allows designers to add smooth animations at 60 fps using Polymer, a prototyping tool.
During the Google I/O keynote…. A Protester attempted to grab the limelight ,calling on Google to “develop a conscience.”
Google demonstrated its Android Wear SDK to show off select Android wearable functionalities.The touchscreen UI lets users swipe across Google Now cards and supported apps from the paired smartphone, and users can use the “Ok Google” prompt to create notes, reminders, alarms, calls and more. When a user installs an app from the Play store on their phone, a wearable counterpart is also installed on the smart watch so the features are immediately synced.
The completely voice-enabled Android Auto is designed to help developers create a safe and seamless solution for using connected devices while driving. By connecting the driver’s smartphone to a compatible car, the Android Auto UI will cast on the car’s screen with quick shortcuts to location searches, suggestions and navigation.

Google Announced all things entertainment into one with Android TV, which lets users watch live TV or stream content while adding a fluid search experience which provide information like cast information and related YouTube clips. Now we can enjoy a gaming experience, by Android TV enabling users to bring Play store games to the big screen. we can cast content from our Android device to the Android TV just like a Chrome cast.
Now you no longer need to be on the same Wi-Fi network to cast content to Chromecast! we can search for nearby devices and connect via the cloud. If Chromecast does not recognize us in the area, it will ask for a pin. This feature is opt-in, and may be roll out later this year. Google also added a Backdrop feature. Which allow background photo customization that draws photo from our library. we can opt to display weather information or news, or choose to mirror our entire Android device to the TV.
Android apps come to Chromebook: Android will be able to send notifications straight to the Chrome book for a continuous experience. Selected Android apps are now compatible on the Chrome book as well, including Evernote, Vine and Flipboard.
Google Cloud: with this platform, developers can debug a live application running on hundreds of servers, and set alerts for various events to monitor performance.
Google also announced that it has acquired Appurify, a mobile test automation service, to optimize app building and testing.
The ability to import goals from Google Analytics into AdWords just got even more useful. Now you can tailor them to your paid search objectives by adjusting the conversion settings on each imported Analytics goal and transaction within AdWords.
