Android 6.0 Marshmallow Confirmed

Android 6.0 is Called Marshmallow, Third Developer Preview Released

Google officially lifts the curtains off the upcoming version of Android.

Google has launched the third developer preview of the next iteration of Android, and have revealed that it will be named Marshmallow. This latest version bumps up the API number to version 23.

One of the biggest changes coming with the new version is better security. Apps launched on Android 6.0 will have more open permissions that will provide users with the clearer picture of what the app does and what it will take control of once it’s installed on the device.

Furthermore, Android 6.0 Marshmallow will introduce new and improved fingerprint support, which is a valued feature on the latest iPhones. It will also bring a new Doze power saving mode that will help smartphones last for a longer periods of time.

As of now, Android 6.0 is only available for the developers, but now that Google has officially unveiled it, you can expect Marshmallow to make its way to the consumers sooner rather than later.

No official date has been provided just yet, but Android 6.0 has been in development for quite some time. Likelihood is that it will roll out this fall or in early 2016.
