On first glance Android M doesn't look entirely new. It includes basically the same material design theme with a change to the stock wallpaper and a change to the app drawer (which actually looks cluttered and much less appealing than the LP app drawer if you ask me). The new update is actually feature rich with lots of new stuff coming to Android M. We discussed some of the top new features yesterday. Below you will find the full list.
