Android M is Android Marshmallow

Yep. It’s official. Android 6.0 will be named Android Marshmallow.

Google just revealed the the new version of Android will be named Android Marshmallow. Sweet, isn’t it? Before this, ther have been rumors that the new version of Android would be named “Milkshake”. But those rumors fell flat.

With a newer version of Android, many new features have been added. For example, full support for USB Type-C, new Android Pay mobile platform, simpler controls over app permissions and many other tweaks throughout the system. The fist version of Android Marshmallow will most likely run on two Nexus devices that Google is working on, according to leaks.

Google has released the final version of Android Marshmallow SDK and the third and final preview. These previews can be loaded on any Nexus device. However, these previews are not 100% done, so they are not really intended for daily usage. According to Google, when Android 6.0 Marshmallow launches to the public later this fall, you’ll need to manually re-flash your device to a factory image to continue to receive consumer OTA updates for your Nexus device.

So, should you update?
