A huge list of new Android M features

M feature list

If you watched Google I/O on Thursday you probably noticed the huge list of features forming an M in David Burke’s presentation of the latest Android update. Interestingly, this list does not include every feature we’ve seen, like a dark theme for the UI or the ability to rearrange quick toggles, nor does it mention every feature mentioned in the Keynote, like Google Now’s “Now on Tap”. So obviously this is not a full list of every single change and improvement, but it’s still a more detailed list, and a lot of the things mentioned, like Auto backup for apps and support for 5GHz Portable Wi-Fi hotspot, look really good.
