The latest operating system introduced by Google is called Android 6.0 or Android Marshmallow thus continuing its legacy of naming them after edible things. Google has jumped from Android phones 2015 containing Lollipop to Android Marshmallow within a quick span and brings a lot of new and interesting features in Android 6.0.
The animation that comes on the screen as you start up your phone is the first new feature that comes in Android 6.0. It is colorful and goes on for a while until it hits the word “android”. It looks pretty cool on the handset bringing out the best trends in technology so far. As soon as it boots, it takes you to the lock screen which has a different layout compared to the previous versions. It has the camera shortcut to the bottom right hand corner. Voice search button shortcut is towards the bottom left hand corner.
The notifying feature of Android 6.0 Marshmallow is the Now on Tap feature. This feature gets activated once you long press the home screen button. It doesn’t open Google now anymore. Google Now on Tap basically brings on context related information depending on what you’re doing. It reads whatever screen you’re on and gives you options like Facebook, Instagram, google plus and many more.
Press and hold on to the settings icon. Then let go of it and you’ll be notified that the System UI Turner has been turned on. Going into quick settings you can change or organize the way the icons are placed. For instance if you want to replace the “flashlight” button with the “do not disturb” button, long press on that button and move it to the position you want.
Finger print support is another interesting feature in Android 6.0 (Marshmallow). This has been delivered in the Nexus devices and specific app by the name of Android Pay has been launched. This is similar to payment systems like Apple pay and Samsung pay.
Cut, copy and paste got a lot easier as the cut, copy and paste buttons come right on top of your text. Plus if you have Google translate installed on your device, it shows you the option of translate whatever word you have selected. So this is a cool option they have included in the interface of Marshmallow.
Then there is a feature called Doze. Doze mode allows your phone to sleep whenever it is laid down on a table or in your pocket or in your handbag. This enables the phone’s battery to last even longer. The fact that the phone goes into hibernation mode saves a lot of battery.
iDROID USA also has the intention of launching its Android phones with 6.0 Marshmallow in the near future. No matter how fast the world is, iDROID USA will keep on struggling and putting up their untiring efforts to conform to the latest technology trends and to make their gadgets potent enough to support the modern man’s needs.
