Google has formally introduced the official Android 6.0 SDK along with the final preview of Android M, now being presented as Marshmallow. In his remarks about the name of the latest release, Android product manager, Jamal Eason, explained that “whether you like them straight out of the bag, roasted to a golden brown exterior with a molten centre, or in fluff form, who doesn’t like marshmallows?”
Apart from its traditionally unique name, there are a ton of new and unique features in the new update that were promised in the launch of the M Developer Preview at Google I/O. The changes include, but are not limited to, updates to the Fingerprint API for better error reporting, fingerprint enrolment and greater reliability, along with an update to the permissions user interface. In addition to that, the latest version of android will also feature Doze, which is supposed to reduce background app activity when the device is inactive in order to provide a longer battery life, and a USB-C connector that aims to charge devices three to five times faster than current chargers.
