Andriod 6.0 (marshmallow) is out now!!!

HashFlare HashFlare
Google announced its plans for the Android Marshmallow update rollout at an event in San Francisco in late September, and Android 6.0 has been arriving to a number of its Nexus devices since the week beginning October 5. But which other devices will get the Android Marshmallow update, and when? Check out our list of devices, from Samsung, Sony, LG, Motorola, Google and more, to see which are in line for the Android 6.0 Marshmallow update. 

Google Nexus Android Marshmallow update
Google's Android 6.0 Marshmallow OTA (over the air) update to the Nexus 5, Nexus 6, Nexus 7 (2013), Nexus 9 and Nexus Player has begun. The rollout will occur in stages, with some carriers set to receive the update sooner than others. The Nexus 4, Nexus 7 (2012) and Nexus 10 are not scheduled to receive the update.
Google's newly announced Nexus 5X and Nexus 6P devices will launch with Android 6.0 pre-installed in October. 
Motorola Android Marshmallow update
Following HTC's Marshmallow announcements (below), Motorola has revealed its current list of Motorola phones that are in line for the update. The list is subject to change, and a timeline for the individual rollouts has not yet been provided, but you should expect the most recent devices to get Marshmallow first.   
§  Moto X Pure Edition
§  Moto X Style
§  Moto X Play
§  Moto G (3rd gen)
§  Moto X (2014)
§  Moto G (2014) 
§  Moto G 4G LTE (2015)
§  DROID Turbo
§  Moto MAXX
§  Moto Turbo
HTC Android Marshmallow update
Thanks to the official HTC Twitter account, we now have a confirmed list of devices due to receive Android Marshmallow. Though the Android 6.0 update is scheduled to rollout at the end of 2015 for the HTC One M9 and HTC One M8, the fine print notes that not all carriers will be able to deliver it. 
HTC Vice President of Product Management Mo Versi confirmed via twitter that the HTC One M8 GPE will receive Android Marshmallow sometime in October. GPE (Google Play Edition) phones were originally designed to offer a pure Android experience on non-Nexus devices, and were second in line only to Nexus phones when it came to Android updates, but they've been dying out lately. HTC has breathed a little life back into its GPE device with this update news.
HTC also confirmed that the HTC One M7 would not receive Marshmallow because it is now more than two years old and outside of the update window.
This list below is not final and we will keep you informed of all other HTC devices that are added to it.
Samsung Android Marshmallow update
Samsung has not yet commented on its update schedule, but that hasn't stopped some websites from claiming they have an 'official' list of Samsung devices due to be updated to Android Marshmallow by the end of the year. T-Mobile has now listed its first wave of Android devices set to receive Android Marshmallow, including the Samsung Galaxy Note 4, with more sure to receive the update later.
SamMobile has reported on a list of devices that Samsung has been testing Marshmallow on. The list is preliminary and subject to change, but gives a good indication of devices that are likely to receive the update:
§  Galaxy S6
§  Galaxy S6 Edge
§  Galaxy S5
§  Galaxy S5 LTE-A
§  Galaxy S5 neo
§  Galaxy Note Edge
§  Galaxy Note 5
§  Galaxy S6 Edge+
§  Galaxy S6 Duos
§  Galaxy Note 4
§  Galaxy Note 4 Duos
§  Galaxy Alpha 
§  Galaxy Tab A
The Samsung flagships released this year will almost certainly get Android Marshmallow, either before the end of the year or in early 2016. We've reached out for more details on the Android Marshmallow update for Samsung Galaxy devices and will fill you in on anything we hear.
LG Android Marshmallow update
LG will be the first phone company to update one of its devices to Marshmallow. The rollout will begin with LG G4 users in Poland next week.
There's no official word yet on the LG G3, or LG G4 users in the rest of the world. Presumably, LG is using Poland as a testing ground for the software update, so the global release can proceed as smoothly as possible. Depending on how that goes, we could be waiting a few more weeks or months.
T-Mobile lists the LG G3, LG G4 and LG G Stylo among those devices set to receive Android Marshmallow in the first wave of updates.
The Korean LG support page for the LG G3 and LG G4 recently added options for Android 6.0, which suggests the firmware is set to appear on these devices sooner rather than later. Although the option currently redirects to an unrelated page, it still appears likely that LG is hard at work preparing the update.
This could also explain why LG chose to skip over the Android 5.1.1 update for their flagship devices: to better prepare for Android Marshmallow.
Sony Android Marshmallow update
Sony has released an official list of devices that will receive the Android Marshmallow update:
§  Xperia Z5
§  Xperia Z5 Compact
§  Xperia Z5 Premium
§  Xperia Z4 Tablet
§  Xperia Z3+
§  Xperia Z3
§  Xperia Z3 Compact
§  Xperia Z3 Tablet Compact
§  Xperia Z2
§  Xperia Z2 Tablet
§  Xperia M5
§  Xperia C5 Ultra
§  Xperia M4 Aqua
§  Xperia C4
There is no indication of when each of the devices on this list will get updated, but it is bound to vary depending on the carriers and models. We'll let you know more as soon as we can.
Huawei Android Marshmallow update
Huawei might see Android Marshmallow as something sinister – that's because it must first roll out Android Lollipop to its latest smartphones. Only after that can we consider the Huawei Android Marshmallow update as something to look forward to. Huawei has said that the P8 will be the first device to get the Android M update, but has not given us a date for when this will occur.
Which phone do you have? When do you think you'll get the Android Marshmallow update?
OnePlus Android Marshmallow update
OnePlus is probably a little preoccupied with its own OS, OxygenOS, to be concerned with Android Marshmallow. Don't expect to see anything happening on the OnePlus front until 2016, when the OnePlus 2 seems the most likely to receive the update.
Asus Android Marshmallow update
Asus is a little slow to update its devices, although the Zenfone models are now on Android Lollipop. You can expect the same range, including the new Zenfone 2, to get Android Marshmallow in Asus' own time.
ZTE Android Marshmallow update
ZTE is very lackluster at updating its phones, so don't hold your breath for Android Marshmallow if you own one of its devices. The higher profile models, such as the ZTE Blade S6 and ZTE Axon, are the most likely to receive it, but even then there's no telling when.

Now on Tap

Google Now is more accessible and helpful than it's ever been. Now on Tap is a new feature that pulls up extra information in top of whatever you're doing, based on what's on your screen.
It's essentially an "easy button" for your phone and here's how it works. Press and hold the home button on your phone -- Google says it should work on a variety of phones with both onscreen and physical home buttons. You'll see a short animation and then a small card (0r cards) will appear, giving you information and app shortcuts.
What's on the cards depends on what's on your screen. For example, if you're texting a friend about where to meet for dinner, mention a restaurant name in your message and then activate Now on Tap, the card will give you options to call the restaurant, find it on Google Maps, or view reviews on Yelp. Or if you're looking at email plans to see a movie, Now on Tap will show ratings, links to the movie's page in the IMDB app and a YouTube to link to the trailer.
Now on Tap includes shortcuts to apps on your phone, where appropriate. For instance, with the OpenTable app installed, you'll be able to use an OpenTable shortcut from the Now on Tap card to book a table. If you're looking at a card about a famous person and tap the Twitter shortcut, it will load that person's profile page in the app on your device. This deep-linking technology is something that Google's been working on a for a while and it really shines with this new feature.
Another part of Now on Tap is that you can run a voice search and Google will use the context of what's on the screen to give you results. A great example is if you're looking at a restaurant in the Foursquare app and ask Google how far it is from you. Google knows you are referring to the restaurant on your screen and gives you the right travel times. This also works if you're playing music on your phone; you can ask for details about the artist or band -- "Who's the lead singer," "What's the No. 1 hit?" -- without even using their name.
Google Now on Tap aims to do two things; give you quick answers and help you figure out the next step. It's well designed to appear when you need it and then disappear so you can go back to what you were doing.

Android Pay

Though it's not only for Android 6.0, the new update goes hand in hand with Android Pay, Google's new mobile payments system. Android Pay will let you make purchases at participating stores using your phone's NFC chip. As with Apple Pay, you can hold your phone to the credit card terminal and follow the onscreen prompts to pay. Samsung Pay works a bit differently, allowing you to pay at different kinds of credit card machine, not just those that support NFC.
Android Pay also lets you make purchases on your phone, such as paying for an in-app purchase. Google Wallet, Google's original mobile payment app, is changing to handle only peer-to-peer payments that you make between friends, family and others.
If your phone has a fingerprint reader, like the new Nexus 5X and Nexus 6P do, you can authorize payments with your print, as you can with iOS. Android Pay works with 700,000 stores, including Walgreens, Macy's and Best Buy in the US.


Google's Nexus devices now support the new USB Type-C standard of charging cable. That means it can be charged or can also charge other devices. Better yet, it's got the same shape on both sides, meaning you won't have to grapple with which side is "up."
That's for charging up, but what about saving power to begin with? Android 6.0 Marshmallow also includes Doze, an automatic energy-saving feature that Google says will use less power than the current standby mode. Basically, if you walk away from your device for a lengthy period of time, it hibernates to save your battery. You'll still hear important alarms and incoming messages, but with as little as half the power consumption of the earlier version.

App permissions

In the past, installing an app meant you agreed to let it use whatever parts of your phone it asked to use. Now apps will ask for access to parts of your phone or Google account when they need it, and you can approve those requests or not.
For instance, a messaging app might not ask for permission to use your camera until you try to take and send a photo. This is very similar to how iOS devices handle permissions -- apps ask for permission to use your camera, contacts or photos on a need-to-use basis.
This adds additional security to Android and gives you more control over how apps can use your phone's resources.

Fingerprint support

This feature is a bit more behind-the-scenes, but Google has included support for a fingerprint reader. This allows the Nexus 5X and Nexus 6P to use a fingerprint scanner to unlock your phone as well as apps, plus you can now use your fingerprint to authorize payments.

Redesigned app drawer

The app drawer, the menu where all of the apps installed on your phone or tablet live, has a new layout in Marshmallow. There's a search bar at the top, where you can quickly find an app. Below that are the apps Google thinks you want to use right now, based on time of day or your typical app-opening habits. The app drawer now scrolls up and down, instead of left and right, which is a bit of throwback to earlier Android versions.
