Android 5.0 was  first unveiled under the codename "Android L" on June 25, 2014 duringa keynote presentation at the Google I/O developers' conference. Alongside  Lollipop, the presentation focused on a number of new Android-oriented  platforms and technologies, including Android TV,in-car platform Android Auto, wearable computing platform Android Wear,and health tracking platform Google Fit.

Part of the  presentation was dedicated to a new cross-platform design  language referred to as "material design". Expanding upon  the "card"motifs first seen in Google Now, it is a cleaner design within   creased use of grid-based layouts, responsive animations and transitions,padding, and depth effects such as lighting and shadows. Designer Matías Duarte   explained that "unlike real paper, our digital material can expand andreform intelligently. Material has physical surfaces and edges. Seams and   shadows provide meaning about what you can touch." The material design   language will not only be used on Android, but across Google's suite of web  software as well, providing a consistent experience across all platforms.
