A note sent to app developers which was obtained by Android Police informs developers that the Software Development Kit for Android 5.0 is now available. It further advises developers that they can start working and testing their apps on the Android 5.0 platform. It concludes by revealing that Android 5.0 will be available to consumers starting 3rd November.

This is quite predictable as Google has already said that the refreshed Nexus 6 phone and Nexus 9 tablet will be available early November. Both of them, will come loaded with the latest Android 5.0 Lollipop. It only makes sense for Google to start rolling out the update for existing devices around the same time.

Typically, as we have seen in the past, Google’s own Nexus devices are the first ones to get latest updates, which is followed by other mobile manufacturers. Google has officially confirmed that its entire Nexus range will be updated to Android 5.0 in the coming weeks. HTC has already said that it will start rolling out Android 5.0 on the HTC One M8 and HTC One M7 worldwide,  “within 90 days of receiving final software from Google”. Meanwhile, Motorola has revealed that its plans to update the first and second gen Moto X and Moto G and other devices with Android 5.0 later this year.

There’s a whole new look and feel to Android 5.0 Lollipop, courtesy of a concept called Material Design, it paints richer colurs, adds more depth and has more white space. Along with that, it also adds a new notification setup, offers new ways to multitask and has a new battery saving mode. Check out our in-depth article about What to expect from the Android 5.0 Lollipop.
