    What are the chances we see it on the GS6 this year?

    Votes on the what the "M" stands for?

    Could Android M be what the doctor ordered especially the doze feature for battery management? Pleas device tinkering?

    My guess is 100% that the GS6 gets M.

    Before today everyone was banking on Marshmallow. Now a lot of people think Milky Way or Milkshake. I'm fine with any of those three. What are you hoping for?

    I have M on my N6 - will let you know in a couple days how battery is treating me.

    Definitely getting it. Samsung flagships usually get 18-24 months of support. The question is when?
    Milky Way or Marshmallow.
    Hope so. Google Play Services always show as the top drain on my phone

    Hoping for Macadamia Nut or Milky Way or Mounds?

    Will Android M be a follow on to Lollipop 5.1.1 or in place of it?

    Android Pay or Samsung Pay? Which is gonna be better?

    I think the S6 will receive M on AT&T about 2 weeks after the S7 comes out. Oh and milk shake will be my guess.

    Android N is for 2016. It has to be before then.

    How much of features like fingerprint scanner and mobile payments played a role in their inclusion in Android M? Could this be the beginning of a optimization push by Google to standardize Android devices and limit the footprint of branded UI like TouchWiz or Sense?

    Hopefully it replaces it. Lollipop seams like it's just causing a lot of problems for a lot of people. No matter what android phone you have.

    Remember I didn't say problems for everyone I just said for a lot.

    I read that some consider Android M not as big a step as Lollipop. From what little I saw through the course of the day, that is not the case.

    L was a lot of looks and ideas were started - framework was laid. M seems to be starting to realize the dreams.

    Lolli was a pretty big change from KK. M is just improving a lot of the services available in Android and adding stuff that should have been in LP (e.g. volume controls, turning off heads up or a dark system theme)

    Which brand do you think had the most influence for the inclusion of the fingerprint scanner support? Doesn't seem like much of a Nexus type feature.

    So what Assassin Droid and you are saying, Android M is evolutionary not revolutionary or innovative.

    I think it's great, but it looks and feels very similar. Visually its barely an update. What I saw on stage coming this fall is definitely innovation.

    Getting Android M, definitely, end of year, definitely NOT, I would say April/May for AT&T and June/August for Verizon since they are ALWAYS LAST.

    Google Now on Tap and Photos are pretty innovative. Permission controls and app backups are more evolutionary. iOS and custom Android ROMs have had both for years.

    Why that late? It's so close to the GS7 launch assuming Samsung launches it then. The GS7 will probably ship with Android M update? 2015 EOY seems plausible, no?
