Android Marshmallow is the latest edition of Google’s mobile operating system equipped with some really exciting features updated with the latest technology. Launched in October 2015, the Marshmallow operating version is a refinement and extension of the core features and functionality of Android Lollipop. The OS version will most probably be available from mid-2016. In this blog, we have covered the most sought after features of this newly launched OS version of Android.
Will it be able to ease our mobile experience or will disappoint us? Have a look at the major features of Google’s this OS version and try getting the answer!
Develop Chrome Custom Tabs: Android Marshmallow will now provide developers with custom Chrome tabs. This is basically a Chrome-based in-app mini-browser that developers can use to display web page content within their app (like an FAQ or Help page), rather than having a user bounce from their app to a web app and possibly not make it back. Developers can now color and brand the Chrome custom tab to look as much like part of their app as possible. The popup browser draws over the top of the original app, and supports basically all the features of the full version of Chrome itself, but with dedicated tweaks specifically for that app that’s using it, such as an embedded share button specifically for their app.
Silent mode, DND Options: Silent mode is back in Android Marshmallow! In the quick settings menu, tapping the sound toggle will bring up a mini-menu for ‘Do not disturb’, where you can turn the feature on and off as well as select from three modes: total silence, alarms only or priority only.
Double tap to launch camera action: With the update to Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow, Nexus 5, 6, 7 and 9 devices received a feature: the ability to launch the camera with a double-tap of the Power button. This feature is somewhat unreliable, and frequently puts the device to sleep instead, but it may come in handy.
App links: In previous versions of Android, when you took a screenshot, the only option you had straight from the notifications preview was to share it. In Marshmallow, you can now delete it too.
Text selection: Marshmallow introduces an improved text selection setup that has been clumsy in Android. Instead of getting a temporary edit/share toolbar when highlighting text, in Marshmallow you’ll get a localized floating menu that offers three simple options: select all, copy or share.
Android Marshmallow is now more secure. Learn the upgraded security features here-
Fingerprint API: Android Marshmallow introduces system-level fingerprint support via the new fingerprint API. Both new Nexus devices have a fingerprint scanner. The rollout of Android Pay and other touchless payment systems that rely on fingerprint scanners for authentication can now be handled by Android itself. All you need to do to set up fingerprint authentication in the Play Store for purchases is check a box in the settings.
Automatic app backup: Being have lacked up in Lollipop, Marshmallow can now automatically back up both your apps and data, so any apps restored from a backup will be the same as they were before – you’ll be signed in and right where you left off. The best part is that the device and app data can be saved, so your passwords, settings and progress can all be restored with much less effort.
Network security reset: Network security reset is another feature added up in the Backup and reset setting that allows you to quickly and easily remove all passwords, settings and connections associated with Bluetooth, cellular data and Wi-Fi.
Encryption: Encryption is back in Android Marshmallow with a vengeance. New Android devices running Marshmallow are required to use full-disk encryption by default, but devices updated from a previous version of Android do not. Encrypted devices will also be subject to Marshmallow’s verified boot process to ensure the trustworthiness of their software during each boot sequence. If Android suspects changes have been made, the user will be alerted to potential software corruption.
Android for Work: Through better handling of security, notifications, VPNs, access and storage, the same device can be used both for work and at home. Now you can carry a personal and a work phone in future.
Added Protection by Smart Lock for Passwords: One new addition is the Smart Lock for Passwords which is basically a Google password manager. Enabling the feature allows your website and app passwords to get saved to your Google account.
With all the above new features, we can conclude that Marshmallow OS version is more sensible than Lollipop. You can find much improvement in its predecessor in terms of performance, battery life and feature set. Though the version will still take time to reach your handset and many other Android users around the world, for now, the Android 6.0 Marshmallow update is available for an installation to Nexus devices.
