Android 5.0 Lollipop: Google’s biggest mobile update in years

There’s something magical about the idea that, in the space of a few minutes, your smartphone or tablet can look dramatically different and do some cool new things, to boot. That’s why operating system updates can be oddly exciting, and Android’s latest upgrade — known as version 5.0 or Lollipop — is the firmware equivalent of opening a stack of presents on your birthday.

The upcoming release, which is now available on the Nexus 9 and heading to dozens of mobile devices in the coming months, brings a fresh design and no shortage of new features. Join me as I unwrap Google’s latest gift to the wireless community.
