Android 6.0 Marshmallow

We are just a month away from Google showing off its new Android 6.0 operating system code named Marshmallow.  They will do so, with the launch of the two new Nexus devices. One is made by LG (Nexus 5 2015) and its brother will be bigger like the Nexus 6 but built by Huawei.


Google had kept a lot of people guessing what their next Android OS will be named, when early this year, Android M as introduced. If the preview builds are to be considered. Android 6.0 Marshmallow brings with it a number of changes, visual and internal. The first thing you will notice when you turn on an Android 6.0 running device is the new boot animation, next you can see that the app launcher  has changed, it now comes with a search option which could turn out to be very handy, if you have many app screens.

Home screen rotation is finally here (though some app launchers have done this job for us in the past). Also, Quick settings tab can now be arranged. Now talking about internal changes, Android 6.0 will let users give the power to choose which permission you want which app to have. So, if you do not allow an app to use your mic, it wont be allowed to use it. Finger print scanning is also built in the OS’s architecture, which means improved finger print scanning in supported devices. Lastly there is a cool new function which lets you decide what notifications to show on the status bar. For example if you always have your bluetooth on, and do not want the icon to take the space then simply remove it.  This means a much cleaner looking status bar.

Now it is just a matter of waiting until Google shows off the final build of Android 6.0 Marshmallow to the world in September.
