Android’s latest sugar-coated gift to the world of tech is up and about and we’d be lying if we said that it isn’t sah-weet.

Before all the Apple fanboys pounce, allow us to quickly run you through the seven things that any self-respecting Android fan must know about its latest OS: 

 

Tap and Go

Thanks to NFC & Bluetooth, now shifting your configuration settings, Google account settings and even your wallpaper from your old device to a new one will be easier than packing a suitcase. Merely place your old device against your new one and allow Android 5.0 to do all the legwork for you.

Choose your priorities 

Head to your App Notifications to declare which apps are allowed to disturb you with their notifications even while others aren’t. Which basically means that you can now choose not to be disturbed by Instagram notifications during a conference or well, you can choose to allow those notifications through as a respite during your conference depending on how cool your boss is.

Lock screen notifications

All your app notifications will now be waiting to be read on your lock screen and depending on the app’s settings, you can even undertake further actions such as replying or dismissing without typing in pesky, lenghty passwords to unlock your phone.

Guest mode

Also, the new update allows you to freely hand over your phone to kids or nosy cousins by censoring the stuff they are exposed to, courtesy the Guest mode.

Do Not Disturb

Expanding on the thought behind priority apps, Android 5.0 offers users the freedom to opt for the Do Not Disturb sign which will ensure them an uninterrupted night’s sleep, while at the same time allowing certain contacts through the iron veil.

Battery saving capability
