android l notification

After detailing its next major update at Google I/O 2014 the company released Android L developer images for the Nexus 5 and the Nexus 7 (2013) Wi-Fi tablet. The iteration is yet to receive Google’s customary dessert name for Android releases but that doesn’t mean it hasn’t been spruced up since the last time we saw it. Just today Google has released updated Android L images for the Nexus 5 and Nexus 7 tablet.

The release has been timed with the roll out of Google Fit preview SDK. Google Fit is an open platform that the company unveiled at I/O 2014 which primarily aims to make it easier for health and fitness related apps to play nice with each other.

Boasting a single set of APIs that app and device manufacturers can use to store and access data from activity monitors, the preview SDK can now be used by developers and manufacturers to create apps that will be released when the full SDK is released later this year. Some of Google’s partners in this initiative include Adidas, Asus, HTC, Nike and Runtastic.

Anyone with the aforementioned devices can download the updated Android L images. Google has decided to keep this extremely limited, even its Google Play Edition devices haven’t received images for the next major iteration. Android L is expected to be released this fall.
