Android leak reveals new features

Written by Nick Farrell

 

Hiding in plain site

While Google has already been confirmed to unveil its next major Android OS update at Google I/O later today, an Android L change log has already been found on Google’s Chrome issue tracker.

The log that has almost 100,000 lines of code and listed several potential new features that Android L may bring.

The log was found on a Nexus 10 tablet by Tutto Android magazine. The tablet was running Android L version AAV37C. Tutto Android found that ART is the default runtime of Android L, a feature that was recently confirmed for Google’s next major Android release.

There was also a new Global Search app that would allow users to search for various things from different sources including Google Docs, images, videos, apps, and other resources. However, it’s not clear how the new feature is supposed to work.

The publication discovered new Google preinstalled apps, including MusicFX.apk and TeleService.apk, although the log doesn’t reveal what the apps actually do. Similarly, new “Tag” apps including TagGoogle.apk and NfcNci.apk have been found, with the second one being related to NFC support.

There was also a Volta.apk app although it’s not clear what Volta is supposed to do, and whether it’s actually a new Android L feature of an internal Google testing feature.
