Google: New version of Android coming each year

Android logoGoogle annual I/O conference kick-starts tomorrow and one of the highlights of the event will probably be Android M, which is known internally as “Macadamia Nut Cookie.”

But even as Android 5.0 Lollipop is yet to be adopted by the majority of devices in the mobile environment, Google believes it is time for the dawn of a new version of Android. After all, it’s been a year since the release of Lollipop.

In the past, Google was a lot hastier in rolling out new versions of Android. But this pattern is about to change, and Android fans will have to get used to seeing a new version of the build arrive each year.

This piece of information is not a mare, worthless rumor, as it comes to us right from Google’s own VP of Engineering for Android, Hiroshi Lockeimer. Talking to Fast Company about the present and the future of Android, he disclosed that Android M is indeed coming tomorrow. But he also shared an interesting bit of information related to what’s about to come.

Lockheimer revealed that a new version of Android will be unleashed upon the world every year, as Google will now be adopting a “yearly cadence of big releases.” Since Google M will see the light of day tomorrow, it’s pretty safe to speculate Android N will arrive around this time next year. Subsequently, Android O will be launched in summer 2017 and so on.
