For a couple of months now ever since Google I/O 2015, people have been speculating what the next version of Google’s mobile operating system Android will be called. Even in the last few days we didn’t know what the name would be, but now we do….it’s going to be officially called Marshmallow.
Android 6.0 to be named Marshmallow
Besides the officially unveiling of the name, Google will release a final developer preview of Android Marshmallow, and Software Development Kits for Android 6.0, it’s version number. Developer will now be able to publish apps to Google Play that have all the latest development tools.
As far as developers go, they are being encouraged to test the new permission model for app updates and installs, and official support for fingerprint sensors and a power saving mode are also available.
The final software kit is incremental with nothing significantly different from the last build, says Google.
Aside from developers, what does Android Marshmallow mean for the rest of us? Hopefully some nice tweaks to the user interface, improved battery life, security and performance. We won’t know for sure until it’s unveiled later in the year however…
Let us know in the comments below if you’re all geared up for Android Marshmallow, or just couldn’t care less!
