At Google I/O 2015, Google unveiled that their next version of Android would predictably be called Android M and gave an early look at operating system with the Android M Developer Preview. It’s now time for that Preview to get update with improvements that have been made thanks to feedback from the community. Intuitively dubbed the Android M Developer Preview 2, the latest update is available on all the devices the Developer Preview was (i.e. Nexus 5, 6, 9 and Player). As for the changes made in this update, Google says that:
“The update includes a variety of enhancements and bug fixes made across the system, including those related to issues reported by developers through the external issue tracker.”
Of course, being a Preview, there are still known issues that haven’t been stamped out yet, most notably that you can’t share YouTube videos from within the app, among other things. But overall, it’s been reported that the Developer Preview has been relatively stable as a daily driver, all things considered – just don’t expect everything to be hunky dory just yet.
As for getting the update, if you’re currently already using the first Developer Preview, you should be getting an OTA update for Preview 2 anytime now. If you’re just joining the Developer Preview bandwagon now, Google says to flash the Preview to your device and wait a few hours while your device subscribes to OTA updates.
