Although Google started rolling out the Android 6.0 Marshmallow to Nexus devices on Monday, there is no need to panic if your device didn’t get it yet.
It’s also worth adding that on the Nexus 5 and Nexus 6 terminals that run a completely stock Android build are eligible to receive the update over-the-air.
Last year, after Google released the final Android 5.0 Lollipop code, the company clearly ignored the Android One line, which turned out to be the last devices to receive their updates.
Sony officially announced that many of its Xperia phones will get Android 6.0, but acknowledged that the rollout will be slow and will depend on your carrier. If you have any other Android gadget, you can download the Android Marshmallow update by going to Settings System Updates Check for new system update.
Now on Tap is arguably Marshmallow’s most impressive feature; a context-sensitive version of Google Now that can be launched from anywhere with a long press of the home button.
In case you are using any of the above mentioned Nexus devices as your primary phone, then it would be a wise decision to not flash the update manually onto the device.
However, certain reports speculate that Nexus devices would not be the only ones to receive the update at first. Luckily, if you don’t mind doing a bit of manual work, Google has released the factory images for all of those devices to its developer portal. Another new feature is the Doze that helps the device save battery by switching to hibernate mode when it detects that the phone is idle, the report details. Google on its blog said: “Android Marshmallow is the sweetest, smartest Android version yet”.
With the new app permissions model, users can pick and choose which permissions to grant apps at the time of use.
As usual, T-Mobile breaks down for each device the Android update process into three stages: Manufacturer Development, T-Mobile Testing and Completed.
