It was a first for Google to release a Developer Preview of its mobile OS this year. With Android L already running on a lot of developer devices, the operating system has been getting some reviews, even though it’s not a finished product. A new video was posted up yesterday on the Chromium Issue Tracker, a feedback tool for Android. In the latest 5-day old LRW87D build of Android L, there apparently have been some noticeable new visual changesandroid l launch

Latest Android L changes:

The new Android L features were spotted when a new video was uploaded about a bug on the Chromium Tracker. A bug was submitted revealing an apparent crash which occurs when the user tried to play back a video from a site. The latest Android L build was LMP LRW87D and was running on a Nexus 5 device. While everything looks Android L-ish on the feedback video, there are a few noticeable changes.

It can be seen that the software navigation keys look a little bit tweaked than what had been seen on the earlier Android L builds. Status bar icons like Wi Fi, clock and Google Play also seem tweaked in this latest build. While it was earlier expected that visually everything will remain same in the final release of Android L too, but recent Android L visual changes indicate that Google is evidently planning to further polish the visuals a little more before the public launch.

Of course, these aren’t some major changes but every little change excites us considering there are still new things to come our way. Here is the video and some images for you to see these tiny little Android L changes. The OS is expected to be released for public earlier in November and will be reportedly debuted on Motorola Nexus 6 phablet and Tegra K1 powered HTC Nexus 9 tablet.
