Whenever Apple announces a new version of an operating system, the Internet shuts down to cover it. Android often gets much less press coverage, but I don't know why, since it powers more phones worldwide.

I bring this up because at Google's I/O conference yesterday, it announced the next version of Android and showed off some of it's cool new features. I'm going to give you an overview so you know what to look for when shopping for a new Android phone.

The next version of Android is called Android M for now. At some point Google will announce what M-named sweet it has chosen, but until then we get to guess.

It could take a page from Android KitKat and make it a brand like Android M&Ms or Android Milky Way. However, I'm going to put my money on Android Marzipan. Let me know your guesses in the comments.

Android M isn't going to be a huge shift in look or architecture like the current Android Lollipop operating system, but it's bringing some upgrades that Android users are going to love. The biggest one is what it does with permissions.
