Google released its latest mobile operating system last week at the Google I/O Keynote 2015. Android M was expected to be an incremental update with no wonders inside like we saw in Android Lollipop. The operating system has built upon the design language of Lollipop and Material Design adding more functionality and usability in the OS.

Note that Google hasn't included many design changes in the latest build focusing more on new features and functions. Some of the most notable Android M features include granular app permissions, support for fingerprint sensor, USB-C support, Android Pay and more.

Google is expected to release around three updates before the OS becomes available for public.
