Among the recent topics, Android 5.0 Key Lime Pie is no doubt one of the most popular topics in telecommunication industry. Android 5.0 Key Lime Pie is expected to be significantly modified versions of existing features in Android 4.2 Jelly Bean. There's also a strong likelihood that Google will pack the next-generation mobile operating system with several new features. Android 5.0 Key Lime Pie will more-than-likely be optimized for the latest Android-based smartphones, many of which contain new technology such as IR blasters and eight-core processors.
The Android 5.0 release date is presumed to coincide with Google's annual developer's conference, Google I/O, from May 15 to May 17 this year at the Moscone Center in San Francisco. Android 5.0 Key Lime Pie features are perhaps the most guarded details surrounding the release of the next-generation operating system. It's hard to report Android 5.0 Key Lime Pie features with any level of certainty, but here are a few rumors that we think are most likely true:
Android 5.0 Key Lime Pie's performance profiles are desired by most hardcore Android users, but the average user probably would have less interest in the feature. Performance profiles on Android would allow Android users to manipulate battery-draining functions much easier than they're able to now. That means turning off the sound, data transfer, screen brightness, background updates and more would be easier to manipulate directly from the home screen rather than requiring users to navigate a series of menus in the settings. Performance profiles would presumably give Android devices better battery life.
Integrated social media support
Android 5.0 Key Lime Pie's social media integration would give Android users a better experience when sharing content on social media networks such as Facebook, Twitter and Google Plus. Android UIs created by companies such as HTC and Sony already include social media integration. Furthermore, widgets made by social media aggregation services such as Flipboard and News 360 offer up varying levels of social media integration. Google often takes the best features from third-party applications and bakes them into the Android OS. We wouldn't be surprised if Google integrated social media networks into Android 5.0 Key Lime Pie.
Cross-device SMS sync
If you're a constant SIM swapper with more than one phone on the go, chances are you've lost track of your text messages at some point. Google stores these on the phone rather than the SIM card, so it'd be nice if our texts could be either backed up to the SIM, the SD card, or beamed up to the magical invisible cloud of data, for easy and consistent access across.
Better multiple device support
Google already does quite a good job of supporting serious Android nerds who own several phones and tablets, but there are some holes in its coverage that are rather frustrating. Take the Videos app which manages your film downloads through the Play Store. Start watching a film on one Android device and you're limited to resuming your film session on that same unit, making it impossible to switch from phone to tablet mid-film. Users need to switch between phone and web site players to resume watching, but surely Google ought to understand its fans often have a couple of phones and tabs on the go and fix this for Android Key Lime Pie.
Built-in video conferencing
Built-in video conferencing abilities are most likely going to be included in Android 5.0 Key Lime Pie. All of Google's biggest competitors in the mobile operating space -- Apple, Microsoft and Blackberry -- offer built-in video conferencing support on their devices. Google currently offers video conferencing on Android devices, but it's not baked into the operating system. Expect better or more obvious video conferencing functionality in Android 5.0 Key Lime Pie.
Line-drawing keyboard options
Another area where the manufacturers have taken a big leap ahead of Google is in integrating clever alternate text entry options in their keyboards. HTC and Sony both offer their own takes on the Swype style of line-drawing text input, which is a nice option to have for getting your words onto a telephone. Get it into Android 5.0 and give us the choice.
Multi-select in the contacts
The Android contacts section is pretty useful, but it could be managed a little better. What if you have the idea of emailing or texting a handful of your friends? The way that's currently done is by emailing one, then adding the rest individually. Some sort of checkbox system that let users scroll through names and create a mailing list on the fly through the contacts listing in Android Key Lime Pie would make this much easier.
App preview/freebie codes
Something Apple's been doing for ages and ages is using a promo code system to distribute free or review versions of apps. It even makes doing little competitions to drum up publicity for apps much easier, so why's there no similar scheme for Android? It might encourage developers to stop going down the ad-covered/freemium route if they could charge for an app but still give it away to friends and fans through a promo code system.
A "Never Update" option
This would annoy developers so is unlikely to happen, but it'd be nice if we could refuse app updates permanently in Android 5.0, just in case we'd rather stick with a current version of a tool than be forced to upgrade. Sure, you can set apps to manual update and then just ignore the update prompt forever, but it'd be nice to know we can keep a favored version of an app without accidentally updating it. Some of us are still using the beta Times app, for example, which has given free access for a year.
Final whinges and requests...
It's nice to be able to sort the Settings screen by alphabetical order, too, or by most commonly used or personal preference, as Android's so packed with a huge list of options these days it's a big old list to scroll through and pick out what you need. Plus could we have a percentage count for the battery in the Notifications bar for Android 5.0? Just so we know a bit more info than the vague emptying battery icon.
The Android 5.0 Key Lime Pie release date is probably about one month away, so thankfully, we won't have to speculate what features will be included in the new operating system for much longer. Let’s just stay and wait for the official release of Key Lime Pie. You can of course share your own anticipations in the below comment part.
