    Google Android 6.0 Marshmallow announced

    Actually, I read this news yesterday in a gaming group on facebook and Google officially announced it two days earlier in a blog post here - http://android-developers.blogspot.in/2015/08/m-developer-preview-3-final-sdk.html. Since, it isn't discussed anywhere in TEC, so I am sharing it in the Forum.

    Google has continued its trend of naming major versions of Android after sweets. The latest addition in the list is Android 6.0 Marshmallow. However, its release date is still not confirmed. Currently, it is available for Developers only. It is expected to be released in September.

    On November 3, 2014, Android 5.0 Lollipop was released. It is just 9 months difference between Android 6 Marshmallow and Android 5 Lollipop. Don't you think, Google is in a type to rush? Is it an impact of latest Windows 10 Mobile OS by Microsoft and Apple iOS 9.

    Muddassir,
    Isn't it against policies to give external links at our site? As far as I am aware, we can give direct links only to official sites, such as when explaining a Google AdSense policy. I suggest that you remove the link from the text of your thread.

    Anyways, this kind of a healthy competition will be a boon to us as consumers. So let's welcome this healthy rivalry.

    By the way, Google seems to have listened to the feedback about the Android OS being prone to security concerns owing to its open source nature. A good number of improvements have been brought in with Android 6.0. Revamped permissions is one of them. It will be helpful in making our data secure with the user having control over what permissions he would wish to grant. This could go a long way in minimising the menace of spare being disguised as genuine apps.
    Moreover, other finer good features like improved RAM manager is helpful in identifying rogue apps that eat a lot of resources and getting rid of them.

    Live....and Let Live!

    Thanks a lot Muddassir for sharing such a great information on Techulator. I have read many details about the upcoming Android 6.0 Marshmallow. I have used the smartphones installed with the Android Jelly Bean, Android KitKat and Android Lollipop and now I am really excited to get my hands on the upcoming Android 6.0 Marshmallow.
