Android M has seen official introduction from Google’s stable on Thursday at the I/O conference in San Francisco. There is no way to know if Google has christened its Android M on lines of Ice cream Sandwich or Lollipop yet but we do know that for now the platform is accessible only to developers.

Android M Welcomes In New Google Search Feature And Android PayThe latest preview did reveal that a single press and hold on the home button of your Android M smart gadget could open up Google Search. So no more swipes along the top of your home screens will be needed.

A huge leap though is that Google Now is more sensitive to context thanks to Now On Tap. Using this feature, your phone will know what email you are dealing with or what music file you are accessing.

Android M also means the arrival of Android Pay. We have heard about this since MWC in March this year but it is only now that users will be able to use apps for processing payments over an application or at stores.
