Google has finally unveiled Android M developer preview yesterday at Google I/O 2015 and some news features like dark system theme UI, pick and choose app permissions, Android Pay, fingerprint support, Now on Tap etc. have been spotted.

Recently we spotted that Android M also supports multi-window mode so that one can keep different activities on the same screen at the same time. Now as Android M preview images are out, Android M apps have been ported for Lollipop running devices.

You need Android Lollipop running device to install Android M launcher, we tested it on Xperia Z2, Z3, working on non-rooted devices also.
