To know with more certainty with what the new version of the mobile operating system of Google will be useful should learn more details about it. Here are some improvements of Android M VS Android Lollipop – and what are the difference?
1. Built-in fingerprint system
Some manufacturers of smartphones have included in their smartphones fingerprint scanners, but with Android M, Google is trying to standardize this technology on Android devices. This means that users will be able to authorize Android Pay transactions in stores and applications within applications using them fingerprint. In addition, developers can use the fingerprint verification which is not currently possible because of the different standards and implementations of fingerprint sensors to Android devices.
2. Android Pay
Android Pay is not exclusive to Android M. It will be available and to the older Android KitKat devices, but will allow a greater degree of certainty in its use thanks to the new API to standardize fingerprint sensor to Android devices. Android Pay will transmit information about your credit card when paying with NFC – it generates a protected sign which is discarded after completion of the payment process. Moreover, unlike Google Wallet, Android Pay debuted with a large number of partners – companies for credit and debit cards as American Express, Discover, Mastercard, Visa and several mobile operators.
3. Improved battery life
Android M has a feature called Doze, thanks to which users will be able to save the battery. When the function is activated Doze, it will drowsy device in the ‘deep sleep’, when not used for a specified period of time. The devices will still respond to messages with highest priority. Doze detects the movement of the smartphone to see if the machine is left idle for a long period of time and if so the operating system considerably reduces the activity in the background to save energy.
Through Android M, Google offer their customers a new option for charging devices – USB Type C. From Google claim that the devices with USB-C connectors will load three to five times faster than current device models with MicroUSB connectors.
5. Permits for access applications
In Android M, system access permissions for applications has been redesigned. Until now, any application asking for permission to access certain features or hardware smartphone to install. The problem was that if an application such as Skype, request access to the microphone and the user does not allow it – the application will not be installed. In Android M things will change because the rights are broken down into separate categories and each application seeking permission to use the function or hardware of the smartphone only when it is necessary. In the Android M you will be able to give rights to access applications only for those features and extras you want.
6. Additional features in Android M
Other improvements include changes in the choice of text in the way of control of the volume improvement in the behavior of Web applications in view. The function is called Chrome Custom Tabs and allows applications to have a Chrome browser running on their application in case the user clicks on the link. So using Chrome, users will benefit from the autofill data, passwords, cache and will use others. Photo apps will also offer a bunch of new useful functions, including automatic tagging, photo archives in smaller sizes, Autoawesome and others.http://gizbrain.com/2015/06/05/android-m-vs-android-lollipop-what-are-the-differences/https://i0.wp.com/gizbrain.com/wp-content/uploads/2015/06/Android-Lollipop-vs-android-M.jpg?fit=700%2C456https://i0.wp.com/gizbrain.com/wp-content/uploads/2015/06/Android-Lollipop-vs-android-M.jpg?fit=190%2C150GOOGLETECH NEWSAndroid,Android 6.0,Android Lollipop,Google,vsDuring the Google I/O developer conference, the company unveiled the next version of its mobile operating system - Android M.
