Following its tradition, Google will release its latest version of operating system, which is referred to as Android M and Android 6.0, at its upcoming annual conference Google I/O 2015.

The search giant's developer conference will kick off at 12:30PM on 28 May with keynote to be presented by Senior Vice President at Google, Sundar Pichai, and Android M should be announced there.

According to a report by The Verge, "a session description that briefly appeared as part of the I/O schedule made specific mention of Android M" but was later removed from Google's I/O website. It went on to say that "Android at Work" session revealed Android M "brings power of Android to all kinds of workplaces." So, it is obvious that the search giant is set to announce its new operating system. 

It may be recalled that Google's latest OS was first known by the name Android L before it was announced as Android 5.0 Lollipop. So, it won't come as a surprise if Android M turns out to be Android 6.0 when it is released.

It is reported the letter "M" in Android M might stand for a sweet like its predecessors - Cupcake, Donut, Eclair, Froyo, Gingerbread, Honeycomb, Ice Cream Sandwich, Jelly Bean, KitKat, and Lollipop. There are reports that Android M will be called Android 6.0 Muffin or after some other sweets like Marshmallow, Milkshake, Macaroon, Milky Way, M&M's, Molasses and Mocha Java Cake.

Google's Android 6.0 'M' is expected to come with several features like improved security that allows inclusion of a killswitch into smartphones, Android TV, built-in Android auto support, and voice access.
