Lollipop to make it easier to control bloatware

Do you like bloatware? I don’t like bloatware. No one likes bloatware. So why do we have bloatware? Well luckily, Android Lollipop is going to make it easier to control bloatware.

Ars Technica sat down with Google’s Gabe Cohen, who described how Lollipop will deal with bloatware. Essentially, the apps will not be installed on the system partition, but will be installed via a SIM card. So technically you could uninstall any bloatware loaded onto your phone. However this will likely only be available on Nexus and Google Play Edition devices, as carrier will probably disable this function on their devices. Still, it’s good to know that Google is doing everything they can to allow bloatware to be removed.
