Considering the full Android releases with starting letters in alphabetical order, — Android M — strongly believes to be the next version of the Android operating system. When the Google launched Android 5.0 at its developer conference last year, it was known by the name "**Android L**" before the company revealed its final name "_[Lollipop](<https://thehackernews.com/2014/10/7-things-about-android-lollipop-50-you_18.html>)_" months later. ### Some More highlights: The schedule also includes another session "**_Voice Access_**" known as "_Your app, now available hands-free_," which suggests that Google wants its users to control every feature of Android apps by their own Voice Command. > As the Voice Access session says, "_In this talk, we introduce Voice Access, a service that gives anyone access to their Android device through voice alone._" The main highlights of the Google I/O schedule are yet Android M, which will eventually get some sweet sugary name too like all the previous versions of Android OS. Till then, **_What do you think the "M" will stand for?_** Will it be Mousse, Muffin, or something else? Hit the comments below.
