Android M vs Android 5.1 Lollipop Walkthrough: What’s New So Far



Android 5.1 vs Android M - Volume Controls

Android 5.1 vs Android M - Volume Controls

With Android M Google has once again changed the volume controls. Simply tapping volume up or down will change the volume, but in M a dropdown appears that instantly lets you access the main three volume controls. Those being notifications, system volume, and alarms.

In Android 5.0 all you had was the volume being changed based on if you're inside an app or on your homescreen, and the do not disturb options below the slider. It wasn't very easy to quickly change any volume level, so that's been fixed in Android M.

    I have been running the 5.1.1 AICP version (based on CM 12) on my Galaxy s5 for about 3weeks. I’m having terrible trouble with GMAPS since install. Hopefully the stock sprint OTA 5.1.1 update will not have the same issue. Its almost unusable. Constantly searching for GPS locations. Even under high accuracy settings. ** I am trying older PRL’s to see if that makes any difference**
