Android is a mobile operating system used by most smartphones and tablets. In 2003, Android, Inc. was founded by Andy Rubin, Nick Sears, Rich Miner, and Chris White. Their OS took root in the Linux kernel, a globally open-source platform, and is currently being developed by Google. After more than a decade since its creation, Android has proven versatile, and some form of it is currently being used for TV/streaming device interfaces as well as smartwatches and cars. Most updates to the OS have been named after candies and “sweets” of some kind, with the latest release, “Lollipop,” rolled out in April of 2015 and its successor, “Marshmallow,” previewed in August of 2015.
