Exclusive: Google aiming to go straight into car with next Android - sources | Reuters

Google Inc (GOOGL.O) is laying the groundwork for a version of Android that would be built directly into cars, sources said, allowing drivers to enjoy all the benefits of the Internet without even plugging in their smartphones.

The move is a major step up from Google's current Android Auto software, which comes with the latest version of its smartphone operating system and requires a phone to be plugged into a compatible car with a built-in screen to access streaming music, maps and other apps. The first such vehicles will debut in 2015.

It means M for Motor :D
otherwise 'M' for ?
At least now Indians should stop their stupid campaigns about naming Android version on Indian sweets. We love our sweets very much even if Google never names Indian sweets for Android version :p

  • Improved text selection and floating toolbar
  • App Standby - When the OS detects an app hasn't been used in a long period of time then it automatically puts it on standby, which disables its network access and suspends its syncs and jobs.
  • Improved volume control - Silent mode is back. Extended Volume Control options now available.
  • Do not disturb quick setting
  • Adoptable storage devices - Users can now add an SD card, which will then be adopted by the system to behave like internal storage.

Gingerbread had that I think.

I guess the author is mistaken. Direct Share simply means the ability to share items with specific contacts directly via an app. As far as I know, frequently shared to apps already appear on top and it has been since long.
