Android Nougat reaches beta testers on the Honor 8 with a clearer UI

Huawei already warned a few months ago that it would propose a not so heavy custom cape like the one I had at that time. An imperative need for Android to perform much better and not be tied to that software that usually wreaks havoc on both the performance and the battery of the terminal. He also says that the pure version of Android is looking better and better, so that Pixel will attract more and more people.

At the beginning of this month the search for candidates to test the beta of Android Nougat for the Honor 8. After choosing a good sum of them, the company is now launching the beta builds, so today we already have access to the first screenshots of what is a layer clearer personalized, as evidenced by them.

The screenshots show Android Nougat with EMUI 5.0 on the Honor 8, and as you can see, everything seems clearer and cleaner. This is because Android Nougat on the Honor 8 comes with Huawei’s EMUI 5.0, also seen on the recently launched Mate 9.

This new custom layer, or what are some tweaks that they make it lighter to look at, makes EMUI more like what Android is, instead of more like iOS. The latter was one of the harshest criticisms ever received of Huawei, that manufacturer that is currently the third best seller on the planet.

So, with a purer version of Android, the Honor 8 becomes an even more desirable phone than it was when it was released. A terminal that sold 1.5 million units in its first two months of life, as reported in this news. If you own one, it will be a matter of waiting to get your hands on that Nougat that looks great.

Google+ for Android updates with page support

Google today released a new version of the application for its social network Google+. From now on, page owners will be able to manage them directly from the application and a new “Find people” function is available. Details after the jump.

We divide the changelog into two parts:

  • Google+ page owners can view, post and comment from mobile devices

This feature has been long awaited, especially by those who, like us, manage a Google+ page on the Mountain View social network. From today we can post, comment and answer your questions directly from our Android smartphone or tablet wherever we are. In my opinion it is decidedly inconvenient to switch from your account to that of the page you manage as you have to exit the application every time and log back in by selecting the desired account. Nothing difficult or long, but a simple switch was enough as we find on the application Twitter.

  • Discover people and topics more easily with the Find People feature

This new function can be found in the pop-up bar on the left under Home. By entering this menu we will find a list organized by You may know, Featured on Google+, Games, Technology, Photography and Art, Politics, Sports, Fashion, Travel and Cars, Entertainment, Music, News, Fun and Interesting, and Food and Drink where we will find pages and friends that Google+ suggests we add to our circles.

TUTORIAL: SAMBA Server on Android, options and configuration

Today we want to explain in a simple way how to create a SAMBA server from our Android for our local network, so we can share the files hosted on our Android TV-Box or similar with any other device that serves as a client with OS Android, Windows, OSX or Linux. You also have manuals available where we explain what SAMBA is and how we can set up a server in Windows. A very practical system that, as we will see, is not very complicated if we configure it correctly, we just have to adjust the server and select which folders we want to share.

  • List of best models Android TV-Box or mini PC to create SAMBA server


Some Android TV-Boxes have as standard SAMBA server installed by default In the system settings, this is very convenient because we can run it by default when the system starts and directly share the selected folders or drives. In our analyzes we always comment on whether they have this setting; we normally find it on TV-boxes from the UGOOS, ZIDOO and some MINIX brands.

  • Within the system settings Activate and configure the SAMBA Server option


If we do not have on our device Android the native server option SAMBA We can use a third-party app that gives us the possibility of enabling it, for now there are not many options but they work quite well. You have to take some points into consideration before using these applications.

  • Some of them may require root for certain functions.
  • If our Android TV-Box does not have an upper notification curtain, it may not work well.
  • External USB drives can cause issues with renaming on power up.
  • It has limitations in transmission speed.

LAN drive

A simple application that allows us to set up a SAMBA server In a few steps, we just have to install it, configure it and run the service so that it starts sharing our files.

  • Install LAN drive from Google Play (no root required)
  • The free version is limited to 0.5 MB/s, the vpayment version it reaches 50 MB/s, okay €4.09
  • If we do not have a top curtain on Android, go to Settings > Apps > Lan Drive > Notifications (Disable)

On the main screen we can see the connection data in the lower left corner and the three main functions:

  1. Manage users: Manage the access system, by default it is anonymous. We can change it to set a password.
  2. Manage sharings: Folders that we want to share, by default it shares everything. We recommend disabling Root.
  3. Start the server: The SAMBA server service starts and we can now see the folders on our Local network.

In the SMB Client tabs we can see other SAMBA devices on our local network and in Browse the files we share.

Within the settings of the LAN drive application in the upper left wheel icon we have several interesting options:

  • We can change the language to Spanish.
  • Device name is used to change device name and how we will see it on the local network.
  • We recommend disable SMB1 so as not to have a security problem.
  • Boot to startup of the operating system to always have it running.
  • Set up ports of connection.
  • If we have connection problems, it is advisable to read the LAN server Manual.


  • Connect an Android device to your PC using SAMBA
  • SAMBA on Android, connection with Windows and alternatives
  • NFS on Windows to share files with Android, getting started
  • Configure KODI to play files on local SAMBA network
  • Install Windows from scratch from a USB stick

We return with a new practical Android tutorial video, this time aimed at all those users who seek maximum security and privacy certainty when sending their photos through Android. Thus, today I am going to explain to you a magnificent solution that will help us to encrypt photos from Android to send them securely through email or messaging applications that allow it, such as Telegram for Android.

We are going to achieve this in a very, very simple way with the only download and installation of a completely free application for Android that we will be able to download directly from the Google Play Store, the official application store for Android.

The application we are talking about, a essential tool for the security and privacy of your photoseither to send them or to store them encrypted on your Android, responds to the name of Secret Message Elitewhich I leave you a direct link for download right at the end of this post.

But what does Secret Message Elite offer us?

Secret Message Elite, from a user interface that is as simple and intuitive as possible, gives us the possibility of encrypt or decrypt photos and text messages as long as these photos or messages have been encrypted by the application itself.

A form of secure encryption that Its decryption can only be accessed by using the same application and only cknowing the encryption key that we have used in encrypting photos or messages.

Using the application to encrypt or decrypt photos or text messages is as simple as select a numeric key, a number that we will select to our liking and with as many numbers or digits as we want, which, logically and presumably, we will have to know to decrypt these messages or photographs encrypted through the app. Once this numerical key has been selected, we will only have to type the message to be encrypted or decrypted or Search for the photograph to encrypt or decrypt and then click on the corresponding button. So easy and simple!

Likewise, if we are going to send encrypted text messages with the application, encrypted text messages or encrypted photographs, the other person or people to whom we are going to send these messages or photographs, as is logical and expected, In addition to having the application downloaded and installed on your Android, you will also have to previously know the numerical key used for their encryption.

Yesterday we informed you about a new terminal of Chinese origin, the HOMTOM HT7, which we could No products found.get at a magnificent price »/], an Android 5.1 Lolliopop terminal with IPS HD screen, Today we have prepared the analysis and video review in Spanish of the HOMTOM HT7a terminal that I can already tell you is going to leave you amazed.

The truth be told, is that being able to have an Android terminal with that quality of screen and fluidity of the system for such a low price, in principle had even given me a bad feeling, which after the first hours of intensive use of the HOMTOM HT7 All misgivings are left behind since I can personally certify that the terminal works perfectly and It is a terminal that is more than recommended and indicated for a basic Android user. who are looking for nothing more than a terminal to stay in touch, surf the Internet with quality, check their emails, visit their social networks or even play the odd game.

HOMTOM HT7 technical specifications

Model HT7

Price 55 Euro

The best of the HOMTOM HT7

Without a doubt, leaving its unbeatable sales price aside, the best thing about this HOMTOM HT7 is on display with its sensational IPS screen with HD resolution that united with his spectacular performance in terms of battery consumptionwe are looking at an ideal terminal to get started in the Android world or even an ideal terminal for the basic user who is looking for a terminal with a large, fluid screen and who is not willing to pay exorbitant amounts of money.

On the other hand, regarding the performance of the operating system Android 5.1 Lollipopa loud and clear sound and cameras that are actually much better than what I could have expected at firstwe are faced with an economical terminal that can perfectly cover the needs of these so-called basic Android users.


  • metal chassis
  • Good screen
  • Good sound
  • Decent cameras

The worst thing about the HOMTOM HT7

The worst thing about the HOMTOM HT7, always thinking that we are talking about a terminal with a price of only 55 euros and we cannot ask too many demands, is perhaps its high final weight that goes to 195 grams with the battery already installeda weight that at first does not seem excessive to me since it is about 30 grams above average, but some users may find it a little heavy.

On the other hand, another of the things that I don’t really like too much, we find it in the manufacturing material of your back cover in which a plastic has been used that, although I find it quite resistant and durable, the feel it offers in the hand does not convince me too much.

AWESOME!! How to control Android with your voice

Surely when reading the title of this article, how to control your Android with your voicehave you thought that we are going to talk once again about Google Now voice commands, although I have to tell you that you are completely wrong, and although we are going to talk about an application owned by Google , this is not even remotely the Google Now voice assistant.

The application that concerns us today, an app that has been in testing or beta status for quite some time now, offers us the tremendous peculiarity that with just the use of our voice and just by saying a few numbers or commands as simple as Home or back, We will be able to move around the entire Android operating system as we wish without major problems and just with the use of our voice. So now you know, if you want to know about the application we are talking about and everything it offers us for Android voice control in a very different way from what we are used to, I advise you to take a look at the attached video that I have left you right at the beginning of this post, so you can click on “Continue Reading this Post” to learn more about this amazing Google application that is still in public testing mode.

The application in question, which I have already told you is owned by Google and At the moment it is only available for beta testers among which I am proud to belong, is not yet openly published in the Google Play Store, although if you want to try requesting access to the Voice Access beta, At the end of the post I leave you a direct link to the Google store so you can check everything it offers us and try to request access to the aforementioned beta.

But what exactly does Google Voice Access offer us?

Google Voice Accessunlike Google Now, gives us the possibility of controlling Android with our voice, in the same way as if we clicked on our Android screen on any folder, icon or application drawer with our own fingers, and with just By enabling the Voice Access service, Android active listening will be enabled, as well as all the elements on our Android screen will be listed so that, by simply saying the number in question, it will have the effect of clicking on the screen.

That is, as you can see in the attached screenshots, when activating the service Voice AccessHE It will grid our Android screen to list each of the resulting quadrants and so, just by saying the quadrant number, for example clicking on the corresponding icon or folder and executing it without having to use your hands at all.

In addition to power open any application, folder, application drawer or any setting on our Android by simply saying the assigned number out loudwe will also be able to execute commands as simple as Home to return to the main Android desktop, Back to go back or Open more the name of any application installed on our Android so that it runs automatically.

And how do I run the Voice Access app?

To run the application Voice Access We have several ways available, the first and most functional of all since it does not involve the use of our hands is through the OK Google voice command, in the event that we are Google Now users and we have it enabled from any screen . Thus, with only say out loud OK Google and then Open Voice Access, the application will run automatically and without having to use our hands or touch the terminal at all.

If this OK Google voice command doesn’t convince you or it still doesn’t work for you from any screen on your Android, then you have the option to Lower the notification curtain on your Android and click on the persistent notification that will enable the service active voice listening from Voice Acces, If this way of interacting to call Voice Acces to action is not to your liking either, the other option we have is to enable the called setting from the internal settings of the app Activation Buttona setting that will enable a persistent application icon that will always be displayed above all the applications that we are running, and which by simply clicking on it will enable the application’s active listening service.

Although all this about interacting with our Android just with our voice seems a little cumbersome, I advise you to take a look at the attached video that I have left at the beginning of the post since in it I show you in a very simple way all the concepts that I have tried to explain here and that seem more confusing than they really are.

Google Chrome helps you save time with new features for Android Rui Bacelar January 12, 2023

Our Android smartphone is used for much more than simple communication and telephony. Many times it is our computer, camera, calendar and work center, which is why Google decided to provide its Google Chrome browser with new and powerful productivity functions.

The objective? Help you save time whenever you have multiple tabs open on your Android smartphone, starting with Chrome tabs with our research, for example. The new feature, without further ado, is called Instance Switcher and will help us get more out of our smartphone in scenarios, or multitasking in simple language.

Google Chrome will be really useful on Android smartphones

This is one of the most valuable additions to the productivity expected from Google’s browser. Chrome, present on each and every Android smartphone. It will allow users to have multiple windows. Chrome open simultaneously so we can quickly switch between searches, results, and other content via .

This way we can have a window open for work and another for entertainment simultaneously. On the other hand, it can also be useful to compare search results with different terms, or different topics that are useful to us at a given time. Somewhat better illustrated, truth be told, by the first images of this new feature of Chrome’s instance switcher.

Basically, the feature allows us to split the screen so that we can run two versions of Chrome simultaneously. We can also interact with these Google Chrome windows and search naturally in both cases.

Even more useful feature for foldable smartphones and Android tablets

We can, therefore, start a search for Cooking in one of the windows and another Google search for Games, in the second instance of the Chrome open. In practice, it will be a step beyond tabs for this browser, making it even more practical in everyday life.

Users will even be able to watch YouTube videos while searching, reading, or working on a specific topic or document opened through the Google Chrome browser. In short, it is a new ode to productivity that comes to this application. The feature was first reported by the publication. taking into account its gradual availability.

Personally, I think the feature will be best used on Android tablets. On the other hand, I also see its merit and usefulness in large smartphones such as, for example, the Samsung Galaxy z Fold folding devices and other products that follow this formula with a large interior screen.

Finally, it is worth noting that Google has been working on this functionality since 2021, as best illustrated below by the video posted by Mishaal Rahman on your Twitter.

BlackBerry Partners with Samsung on Android Security in Knox

BlackBerry has announced that the Canadian company will partner with Samsung to add BlackBerry’s enterprise services to the Android secure environment, Knox.

BlackBerry’s enterprise services use security technologies to store or send encrypted data between two devices. Partly thanks to this security, BlackBerry has been popular with governments and large companies.

Many companies still choose to provide their staff with a Blackberry. More and more companies are looking at alternatives such as Windows Phone devices and Android devices from Samsung with Knox. However, Blackberry devices are still the most secure smartphones in the world, which is why Samsung has entered into a partnership with BlackBerry.

Factory-image Android 5.0 Soon Also Available For Nexus 4

Earlier this week, Google indicated that Android 5.0 (Lollipop) will be rolled out to the Nexus 4, Nexus 5, Nexus 7 and the Nexus 10. The factory image of Android 5.0 for the Nexus 5 and Nexus 7 has already been released this week, but Nexus 4 users will still have to be patient. However, the factory image of Android 5.0 will soon also be available for the Nexus 4, according to a Google employee.

It is not yet known when exactly the factory image for the Nexus 4 can be downloaded. The image with version number LRX21T will have to be flashed manually. Flashing a factory image is only for experienced Android users. Standard users will have to be patient a little longer and will have to wait for the “over-the-air” update. It is not yet known when this will be rolled out.

Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean: here’s what changes in the new version of Android

Well Google has released the second official update for Android Jelly Beanthus bringing it to the version 4.1.2. The changes, as we already knew, are not sensational as they were just introduced bugfixes and improved user experience.

The main changes are as follows:

Compatibility with future variants of the Nexus 7

Google apparently would like to put variants of the Nexus 7 on the market such as the 32 GB version or the 3G and 4G versions. The problem is that Android 4.1.1 would not support the “power management chip”, a certain hardware component designed specifically for the new versions of the Nexus 7. For this reason it was necessary to update the software to the Android 4.1.2 version .

More performance, stability and bugfixes

In this new version the aim is a general improvement of the user experience which offers greater performance and resolution of various bugs. An example is the possibility you now have of connecting to Wi-Fi via an enterprise WPA network key, which was not possible with the previous version of Android.

Launcher in Landscape

A very useful improvement was to implement the automatic rotation of the launcher which was not possible with version 4.1.1 or at least it was only possible to activate it by following a guide that was not exactly practical so to speak. Now, however, with version 4.1.2 everything happens automatically. What still remains unknown is whether this function will be relegated only to Google tablets, namely Motorola Xoom and Nexus 7, or also to other devices such as Nexus S and Galaxy Nexus.

Notifications expandable even with just one finger

With the new feature that Google introduced in version 4.1.2, expanding notifications will be even easier than before! In fact, the possibility of expanding the latter in the status bar with the pinch-to-zoom already present in version 4.1.1 has been further improved, giving the possibility to expand them even by holding down and scrolling with your finger downwards.

These are the updates dedicated to this new version of Android! Now we just have to wait for new news.

The classic Snake for Android returns disguised as Crossy Road

A few days ago I was talking to some friends about the classic Snakea game that marked a revolution before and after in the mobile scene since this title has surely offered more hours of fun than Clash of Clans and Clash Royale combined, who knows.

Snake was a way to overcome a simple goal for everyone but at the same time it rose in difficulty to limits that were difficult to pass. Maybe for that reason I have good memories of a game like Snake and I like to see when an original version of the game comes out. This time Snake Legends does it using the original game mechanics and choosing the multiple Crossy Road characters. This fusion is very fun and brings us a title that is worth playing if you like the game.

Snake Legends, download a classic for Android

Since an image did not seem enough to me, it is best to stage this video that shows you how to play and what the mechanics of this very original Snake are.

The truth is that the game is very well designed and the mechanics are the same as what we are used to, although we have 4 ways of control, perhaps choosing the right control is the most complicated. We can control the game using a virtual pad, gestures, taps depending on where we want to go and two taps to choose the side to turn to, you choose.

Once we have mastered the mechanics We just have to collect characters until our queue gets bigger and bigger, but along the way we will have to dodge dynamite, dodge lightning bolts and some of the obstacles that will appear along the way.

It is certainly worth trying and it is also completely free. For those who have problems downloading it or do not have Google Play on their mobile, we leave you the link to the Snake Legends APK. I hope you enjoy.

If, on the other hand, you want to download it directly from Google Play, below I leave you the link to do so, you will amuse, that’s for sure. We would like to know if you have tried it, use the comments to do so.

Android 4.1.2: notifications can now be expanded with just one finger

One of the great innovations introduced with Jelly Bean was the possibility of having expandable and therefore more functional notifications: by means of a two-finger swipe it was in fact possible to view more information by “stretching” it. With the latest update available, which will bring Nexus devices to version 4.1.2now we can perform the same action using only one fingermaking everything more comfortable and simple.

Also now sliding your finger across the bar we will be able to expand all the notifications present, unlike before where we could carry out this operation on one element at a time. To go back to “closing them” now you will first need to do a small swipe downthen carry out one towards the other.

We leave you with a video made by the guys at AndroidPolice where this new feature is shown, enjoy!

Some essential applications for your Android mobile

Leaving aside Whatsapp, Instagram, Dropbox and the rest of the essential applications that we should all already have installed on our smartphone, there are many others that are really useful. We tell you some of the most interesting ones for Android phones.

The Android application market evolves at great speed, so users are almost forced to renew their favorite apps all the time. Although the most famous ones, such as Twitter, Whatsapp or Facebook, do not need advertising, there are many others that remain hidden, waiting for a consumer to find them and squeeze their full potential.

We have selected a small list of applications that we believe will change your life, once you try them and get used to them. Are you willing to download them all?


Macrodroid is based on process automation, with the aim of making life easier for the user. Of course, with one of the most intuitive interfaces we can find.

With this wonder, we can configure our phone to do almost anything, under the conditions we want. For example, we could configure the phone’s flashlight to turn on or off every time we shake the phone.

The triggers are endless. We can choose what we want to happen when a certain time arrives, when we are in a specific location, or even every time we turn on our device.


Timely completely eliminates the alarm that is installed by default on your phone, and replaces it with a much more intuitive, complete and, why not say it, beautiful one.

We can configure different alarms much more quickly and easily, adapt our alarm so that it wakes us up little by little, instead of abruptly, or choose the one in which we have to solve a challenge (a small arithmetic operation or a puzzle) so that the alarm stopped ringing. This way we ensure that by the time the sound stops, we are fully awake.

It is worth giving it a chance, if only for its spectacular design.


If you need help organizing your tasks, your ideas, and your life in general, Mindly will become your best friend.

The application is based on creating ideas or reminders, organized by themes in categories and subcategories. Its design is reminiscent of a neural plan of a brain, and makes it one of the most intuitive applications on the list.


Hooks completely transforms the way you receive notifications that come by default on your mobile phone. It is fully customizable, and goes beyond the typical ‘new email’ or ‘someone has commented on your Facebook photo’ notifications.

With Hooks, we can receive alerts if it is going to rain the next day, if a new episode of our favorite series is released, or even know the result of a match as soon as it ends. And this is just an example, since in its menu we can configure a multitude of things, from news to events.

Unified Remote

How Unified Remote works is simple, at least in theory. This application serves to convert our phone screen into a touch pad through which we can control our computer screen.

It may seem that this functionality is not surprising, and perhaps so. The main reason why Unified Remote has made it into the selection is that it has made it possible for us to move our mouse pointer at real speed, with a fluidity far superior to other applications.

But it also has other functionalities, such as turning the PowerPoint slides by touching the screen or managing the files on our computer, among others.

Omni Swipe

This is considered one of the best applications for navigation and configuring settings for the Android operating system. Omni Swipe gives us the possibility of configuring our favorite applications, and accessing them through a very intuitive menu, which we can place and display from any corner of our smartphone screen.

In addition, by default, it allows you to change settings such as WiFi, Bluetooth, or turn the phone’s flashlight on and off. All with a very nice design, and completely customizable for each user.


Fans of photo retouching can be in luck. Snapseed is probably the most powerful application in this field, since the range of editing options it contains is one of the most complete on the market.

More than 10 different editing tools, and as many filters to select from, which are in turn divided into a multitude of approaches, calibrations and tones. It has such professional things as the possibility of choosing a certain color within an image, and changing only its characteristics.


Drupe’s operation is based on the management of our contacts. The application adds a small icon to our home screen, which we can slide to access the information.

On the left side of the screen, a list of our favorite contacts will appear, something that many other contact managers already have. The novelty is that Drupe has a great functionality: if we drag any of these contacts to the icons that appear on the right side of the screen, we can instantly access the WhatsApp conversation with that contact, their Twitter profile, or even to our email management app, to send you an email.


The last application on the list is one of the most important in terms of cybersecurity for our smartphone. It is an app created by Eleven Paths, Telefónica’s security company.

Latch adds a second level of security to all our applications. The application asks us for a second authentication, after adding the usual password that most apps request.

Android now has an official Instagram account

One of the greatest rules of marketing is be where the audience isand in these days and times so vital for digital, social media is where you have to have an important presence so that they know about you and you can advertise your products and services.

This is why we can see possible “competitors” entering their own services to be present in that audience that makes a call to follow them, as is the case with Android, which from today you already have an official account On Instagram.

Google has created a official account @Android on Instagram and has posted six images with his “Hello World” collage. Technically, these are 4 images and two videos, but really together they form an animation like an Android making a small wave.

In these six images there is a repertoire of well-known products for everyone and ranging from a Google Pixel, a pair of Nexus 6P, a Picel C, a pair of Android Wear smartwatches, notes related to Android Auto and Android Pay, and another couple of interesting reasons related to what the OS itself is. .

There are also some references to thats sweetened Android versions that have helped us to be present in the face of the evolution of the most installed operating system for mobile devices of the moment, as we learned not long ago and that puts Android with incredibly spectacular figures.

Now we only have to know what content Google will launch from its @Android account on Instagram so promote products, news or anything that you see as interesting for your horde of followers who in the coming days and weeks will begin to follow you on this social network that was initially for photographs and has even ended up for video.

How to activate the data saver on Android N

Android N is the new version of Android that came to us a couple of weeks ago. And although it has many bugs, some of which are very annoying, it is very good because it allows us to do more things. In this article, we will see how to activate data saver on Android N. This option allows us to save more data, so if you tend to go too far, it will surely be good for you to find out. Let’s start with the tutorial!

Data saver on Android N

We already told you how to block calls on Android N, but now we will continue with the round of Android N tutorials attacking the data saver. If we go to Settings > Data usage, we will first see the amount of data we have used. In addition, we already told you how to set the data limit on Android N, something that will be very useful for keeping a control of your data spending and don’t overdo it.

But if you want to save data, you need the data saver, which you can activate in Settings > Data usage > Data saver. By default it is “no”, so you will just have to change it to “yes”. Additionally, you’ll be able to see if any apps allow unrestricted data to be used when Power Saver is on. The moment you activate it, a new icon in the bar, which is what we see in the previous image. There is no loss!

Android N is terrible, it may not activate the first time

You may find this blocking you a little, because Android N is a bit bad for now (we are still in March and it is not stable), if you wait, it will appear already activated. And if you hit a reset, you will see that it appears. This will allow you to save data. Another way to activate the data saver is from the notification bar, where the quick accesses are, there you will also find the data saver icon.

Leave us a comment if you have had problems activating the data saver on Android N. We hope we have helped you!

Google is already working on Android 5.1 Lollipop

The rollout of Android 5.0 (Lollipop) has only just started, but Google is already working on a newer Android version. For example, AndroidWorld reports that Android 5.1 was already on display during the Devoxx developer conference in Antwerp.

During the Devoxx presentation, several Google developers showed a code example. This clearly showed that the new version runs on Android Lollipop MR1. MR1 stands for maintenance release 1. It is not clear whether it concerns Android 5.0.1 or Android 5.1. However, it is likely that Android Lollipop MR1 will only be a minor update that only fixes a few bugs.

It is not known when Google will roll out Android 5.1 (or Android 5.0.1).
