The Android operating system was released in 2008 and has received five major updates since then, along with a number of updates in between releases. Android 1.5 Cupcake became the first commercially available release and made its debut on T-Mobile’s G1, also known as the HTC Dream. Google and the Open Handset Alliance later purchased and further developed the software. After a period of seven years, Android has now reached version number 5.1 Lollipop.
Google’s next version of Android, which is known only as Android 6.0 or Android M, is likely to be introduced towards the end of the year in its new Nexus devices.
It may be recalled that Google has a long tradition of naming its software after sweet names in alphabetical order like Cupcake, Donut, Eclair, Froyo, Gingerbread, Honeycomb, Ice Cream Sandwich, Jelly Bean, KitKat, and Lollipop after Android Alpha and Beta. So it is very natural for its fans to expect the upcoming firmware to be named after another sweet starting with the letter “M”.

1. New Opening and Closing Animations
