While it took Google a fairly long time to release the highly awaited Lollipop 5.0 update, we have to say that the company is moving expeditiously with the next chunk of operating system updates. Let us hope the updates are able to quell the flurry of problems being experienced by users or else Google will have its work cut out for it yet again. According to a report published by AndroidPIT, the update will be released during the end of February. Here are some of the changes that will be brought forward in the update.

  • Silent mode will be added after the feature was not present on Android 5.0
  • System stability improvements
  • RAM management will be improved, allowing more RAM left in reserves
  • Fixes done for intermittent app closures
  • Improved battery management
  • Issues with wireless connections have been fixed
  • Problems with the ‘Okay Google’ feature have been fixed
  • Notification problems have been solved
  • Sound and speaker problems from VoIP apps have been fixed

While every operating system update is filled with bugs and issues, Apple’s iOS 8 could not have been presented in a more terrible fashion. Google actually came out on top when it came to the problems being experienced by users but it has a long way to go before it can come at par with the fluidity of Apple’s iOS operating system.
