Android 6.0 Marshmallow Coming To Nexus Phones And Tablets Next Week

Google announced the official rollout of Android 6.0 Marshmallow – there aren't any recent features but soon a lot more people will acquire it (so far it was only available as a developer preview).

Starting next week, the Nexus 5 and Nexus 6 phones plus the Nexus 7 (2013) and Nexus 9 tablets will start receiving the recent Android version.

Nexus 4, Nexus 7 (2012) and Nexus 10 will not receive the update.

As a reminder of the recent features, Google really stepped up the recent voice assistant game. Google Now on Tap is a full-blown digital assistant and can respond questions and understand natural language questions. Third-party app developers can tap into that too.

Further, there are granular permissions, native support for fingerprint readers to assist with Android Pay and Play Store payments, Doze (which improves standby battery life on the Nexus 6 by 30%). Notifications are less intrusive since you can swipe them up to cover them without dismissing them.
