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 Googleâ€™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 Googleâ€™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, itâ€™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 doesnâ€™t reveal what the apps actually do. Similarly, new â€śTagâ€ť 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 itâ€™s not clear what Volta is supposed to do, and whether itâ€™s actually a new Android L feature of an internal Google testing feature.
