The new version will come with most Android phones and tablets shipped with Android 5.1 OS.
Google has announced the version 5.1 of its Android Lollipop operating system. The new version “improves stability and performance and offers a few new features like support for multiple SIM cards, Device Protection and high definition (HD) voice on compatible phones,” according to an official blog post by Dave Burke, VP, Android Platform.
The update will offer better device protection. “Lost or stolen device will remain locked until you sign in with your Google account – even if someone resets your device to factory settings,” said Burke in the post.
The new version will come with most Android phones and tablets shipped with Android 5.1 along with Nexus 6 and Nexus 9. It also brings in High Definition voice calling between compatible Android 5.1 devices like the Nexus 6 on T-Mobile or Verizon.
Other enhancements include ability to join Wi-Fi networks and control paired Bluetooth devices directly from Quick Settings.
