Posted by Unknown
New changes are coming to the Android Users. With a big community and an active development team at Google, you will never be bored with your device. The reason is the updates that keep flowing in!
Android is one of the most used smartphone OS and the fact that makes it more awesome is the regular updates released by the Google Team. If you are curious about the latest update, Android 5.1, we have listed the new features in Android 5.1 below. Check them out!

New Features in Android 5.1

1. Device Protection

Device theft is one of the biggest issues for the android users. With the new update, you can now have much better device protection. The Google team has fixed issues that revolve around factory resetting the phone without the password. With the fix, you can now be sure that your smartphone can be traced back to you.

2. Better Bluetooth Controls and WiFi

Activating Bluetooth and Wi-Fi was not simple in the early Lollipop release. With the 5.1 release, you can now easily set the Wi-Fi and Bluetooth from the drop down notification. If you want more control, you can easily go to the more settings and change the settings from there.
The quick navigation will enable users to use the Wi-Fi Connection more quickly and be done with it.
Also, the Wi-Fi will not connect to poor connections. This will enable you to filter your online experience when traveling.

3. Improved Alarm Systems

Lollipop introduced priority systems so that you can work or do something important without getting bobbed down. With the improve priority change, you can never miss an alarm and be never late for a meeting.

4. Improve Volume Control

Android Lollipop volume control was pathetic and if you are in a music player or a game, it is quite tough to change the voice-call settings by pressing the volume key. In Android 5.1, you can now press the volume key and click on a bell-shaped icon to change the device ringtone volume and other settings.
Amazing right? Yes, it is!

5. New Icons When Pressing the Volume Key

The volume key, when pressed will now show new icons with new placements. The new placements are great and offer wonderful UI experience.

6. New Animations throughout the System

The animation is an important part of the Android system. You can now find many animations that are part of the new Android 5.1. For example, the alarm clock top icons move according to the actions from the user.
There are many other animations that are hidden across the device. I advise you to explore the animations that are new and post them in the comments section!

Wrap Up

We love Android and I am sure that you all do it too. The changes in the Android 5.1 are welcome and we hope you will enjoy the latest update as it rolls out to your device in few days(only if you are using vanilla android). For other Android mods, wait for the manufacturer to release an update for your device.
