Check Out The Rainbow, Sugar-Coated Event Space Google Set Up For Its Biggest Software Update Ever

Google hosted an event in New York City on Wednesday to showcase its new operating system, Android 5.0 Lollipop, and its Nexus tablet and smartphone, TV streaming device, and smartwatches.

Google has called Lollipop its "largest, most ambitious" Android release yet. With Lollipop, Google introduced "material design," an overhauled interface aesthetic that's sleek and brightly colored.

In honor of the release, Google created a rainbow, candy-filled wonderland to show off the goods.Advertisement
