Following the revelation that the Stagefright vulnerability was jeopardising the security of millions of Android smartphones and tablets, Google promised to release monthly updates to the platform, which would fix bugs and security holes identified by its experts.

Clicking that option will open up the file picker where users will be able to select any sound file that they want, which means that users can choose from songs or maybe specially downloaded audio clips that they want to use as their ringtone.

New Android releases are nearly always welcomed by Android users, but power users, especially those who routinely root their devices, have mixed feelings.

Google is continuing its work to make the mobile operating system as power-efficient as possible by introducing a new tweak that will further conserve a smartphone's battery life.

Although the Android update process covers all devices running Android KitKat 4.4.4 and later, which accounts for 86.3 percent of all active Android devices worldwide, it's a sure bet that updates still depend on geographic location, carrier, and manufacturer.
