Android 5.0 Key Lime Pie might pack built-in Video chat

Android logoGoogle’s Android Jelly Bean operating system is almost one year old (although it did get refreshed in the 4.2 release in fall), and a successor might be set to be unveiled as soon as next month, in the form of Android 5.0 Key Lime Pie.

Nothing has been officially confirmed on this for the time being, but rumors on the matter did emerge before, and chances are that all will pan out in the end, and that users will get a taste of some appealing new features in the new platform version.

In fact, as PhoneArena notes, the guys over at kinvey came up with a visual history of the various Android flavors that have already been unveiled, and also listed some of the enhancements that might make it in the next major Android release.

39 version updates have been released to users since Android’s launch, each with its own set of improvements, regardless of whether small or important, and unveiling of the next flavor of the OS in May at Google I/O seems to fall in line with Google’s current upgrade path.

According to a post on kinvey, some of the features that Key Lime Pie might be released on devices with include built-in video chat support, as well as enhanced social media integration.

Performance profiles are also expected to be included in the platform, along with cross-device SMS sync, improved multi-device support, and app preview / freebie codes.

Undoubtedly, Android would become even more appealing with such features inside, though their addition to the platform itself would also exclude some existing applications from the Google Play Store, given that their purpose is to offer video chatting or enhanced social networking features to users.

Key Lime Pie has been said before to arrive on devices as a major upgrade for Android, yet official confirmation on it has yet to emerge, and we should take the above with a grain of salt for the time being.
