Before most Android devices have even received Android 6.0 Marshmallow, Google has released the first update. Android Marshmallow 6.0.1 is its name, and as that suggests, it’s not exactly a major overhaul of Google’s latest OS.
Android “Marshmallow” (codenamed Android M during development) is the sixth major version of the Android operating system. First released as a beta build on May 28, 2015, it was officially released on October 5, 2015, with Nexus devices being the first to receive the update.
Marshmallow primarily focuses on improving the overall user experience of its predecessor, Lollipop. It introduced a new permissions architecture, new APIs for contextual assistants (first used by a new feature “Now on Tap” to provide context-sensitive search results), a new power management system that reduces background activity when a device is not being physically handled, native support for fingerprint recognition and USB-C connectors, the ability to migrate data and applications to a microSD card, and other internal changes.
