Yesterday, we established that Google are preparing to unveil the highly anticipated Android Key Lime Pie mobile software – otherwise known as Android 5.0.
Google’s annual 2013 I/O conference on May 15th is fast approaching, and so potential Android Key Lime Pie features have been suggested, rumoured and guessed at by fans and media alike.
5 Android Key Lime Pie Features We’d Love
Nobody has certain knowledge regarding the features Google will bless their latest version of Android with. So, we’ve compiled five of the best suggested Android Key Lime Pie features from across the internet, in the hope that some of them may just make the cut.
1. Improved Video Chat
In response to Apple’s age-old FaceTime feature, Google need to include an improved built-in video chat system within the Android Key Lime Pie features. We’d love to see Google go out on a limb and add some unique features and abilities t their video chat system.
2. Universal Message Aggregation
We all enjoy using multiple messaging services. Email, Text, Instant Messaging, Social networking messages, and so on. Andorid Key Lime Pie would benefit from a universal message aggregator, where all your mesages are displayed in one, easy to view application.
3. Multi-Screen Mode
With Android screens coming in larger and larger sizes, there really is room for split screen mode. Currently Samsung is flying ahead with this feature, but a native player in Key Lime Pie is surely on the cards. After all, competitor operating systems don’t seem to have it yet.
4. Menu & App Sorting
Some menus in Android are pretty long already, especially the Settings menu, and with Key Lime Pie bringing more features, it’ll only get longer. Google should look into allowing users to sort menus by alphabetical or usage order, much like many phones let you do with your apps homepage. It’ll save time, improve customization and save you straining your finger when flicking the screen up too hard in an attempt to get to the About Phone option and check for Android updates.
5. A ‘Never Update’ option for Apps & Software
We can sometimes fall in love with an app, but when it gets updated, the changes can make it almost unrecognizable. Being able to permanently turn off app updates in Android 5.0 will allow you to have all the apps & softwares you love, and be able to update the rest automatically without having to worry about your favourite ones changing to a form you’re not so happy with.
So there you have it, five Android Key Lime Pie features we want to see Google unveil at this years annual I/O conference in May.
