Google "Confirms" Android 5.0 in World Cup Tweet

The world’s biggest soccer tournament just kicked off (terrible pun intended) and it looks like Google is getting in on the action too. Yes, they seem to be football fans over in Mountain View, but it looks like yesterday’s tweet about how you can get World Cup information via Google Now may have come with a beautiful Android 5.0 Easter egg.

That tweet was meant to show how you could use Google Now and get the most up-to-date information about the World Cup tournament. If you look up to the top-right corner of these screenshots, though, you’ll notice that the clock is set to 5:00. Why is this significant? When Google showed off screenshots to Android 4.2, the clock was set to 4:20. When they upgraded to Android 4.4, the clock showed 4:40. Based on this pattern, a clock set to 5:00 can only mean that we’re looking at Android 5.0, whatever its sweet code name may be.

Aside from that little tidbit, we really don’t know much about the next version of Android. We also don’t know how it’ll impact the Nexus program and the shift over to Android Silver. What we can say is, based on this “leaked confirmation” of Android 5.0, it’s quite possible that the newest mobile OS will be showcased to the world at Google I/O later on this month. What features do you want to see?
