Android Marshmallow is the latest version of the Android Operating system. We will not be able to provide a specific time frame to the availability or release of the update. Google will be coming up with the next Nexus phones with Android Marshmallow out of the box. As for other devices, it all depends on manufacturers and carriers. It may take years or just a couple of months. Android One devices and Google Nexus phones would be the first ones to get the update as has been our experience with previous Android versions.
Here are a few features that would be making an entry with the Marshmallow update - 1. Android Pay
In lone with Apple Pay and Samsung Pay, Google will be making it user friendly payment gateway. It is being made more secure with the creation of virtual accounts. You can make payments for the products or services just by tapping your phone against the NFC terminal at the retailer. 2. Improved RAM manager
Your phone will now offer you a more detailed view of the RAM usage. It shows the RAM used by individual apps. This will help you identify rogue apps that hog more memory and decide to get rid of them. It will also.let the developers identify the faults in their apps and rectify them.3. Better Google Now
Google Now service is now more stabilised and grown enormously. It will offer contextual information on anything you are doing on your phone on just a single tap. You can search for nearby restaurants while you are checking the recipe on a site. Or you can check artist's information when watching a video. Google is moving on to make Google Now a practical virtual assistant. 4. Improved App permissions
You need not worry about app permissions now. You can permit an app to perforn some tasks on the basis of the need. Like if one of your apps wants to use the camera, it will ask for permission every time it wants to. It cannot do it unless you permit. So you are in complete control of what your apps do. 5. Doze
This is one of the new features in Android Marshmallow that keeps a check on the battery usage. It identifies when your phone is idle and restricts the background processes. You can set which apps you don't want to be dozed though.
