Android Lollipop

Android 5.1, Outlook 2016 and Google Apps Now Available for Testing


Hey happy coders! We just wanted to give you a quick heads-up that we just released a few new clients for testing:

  • Android 5.1.0 (Lollipop), run on a Nexus 4.
  • Google Apps on Chrome, Firefox and Internet Explorer 9, 10 and 11.
  • Outlook 2016 Preview on Windows.

Android Lollipop was released by Google on March 9, 2015 and is still building market share. Currently, Lollipop has an 18% share of the Android market.

Google Apps enables businesses to use Google for their email needs, and is similar to Gmail. It’s not quite the same, however, so we have added this client to our list of previews.

Finally, Outlook 2016 Preview allows users to see how Outlook 2016 will render emails ahead of its release date. This client should have virtually no market share, but if you’d like to prepare yourself for the next big thing from Microsoft, add this to your testing list. We’ll switch this over to the official version when it’s released.

Make sure to update your default testing list if you’re not seeing this client appear in your test results.

What clients would you like to see us add in the future? Let us know in the comments below!

  1. Great news! I’d love to see more Android versions, like for iOs, also older ones. And probably also Android devices from other manufacturers, because like everybody of us knows from web-design, Android can be so different depending on the version and even on the brand.

  2. Hey Geoff, somewhat off topic but as of last week, it seems Android 4.4 native client stopped supporting floats in TDs. I use float:left to stack TDs on top of each other. Have you noticed this too?

  3. That’s odd, because I always send tests to Litmus (sorry but it’s what my place of employment prefers) and it stopped working last Wednesday. I even have tests (Android’s screen shots) from previous weeks I can show you. I’ve been using this since 2013 to stack modules using TDs:

    In @media:
    TD[class=”stack”] {
    width:100% !important;
    float:left !important;

    In the HTML:

    left column, top box on mobileright column, bottom box on mobile

    Once again, this has worked beautifully for mobile devices, including the Android 4.4 native client, up until last week.

  4. AJ,
    Sorry, but I can;t really speak to the accuracy of their previews. As far as I know, TD stacking has never worked in Android 4.4. I would recommend that you contact their customer support about this issue.
