Android 6.0 Marshmallow Update for LG and Samsung Devices, Best Features Included in the Latest Update, And More

The first of these three features mainly focus on security and user experience. There is a new permission system through which users are provided the option to choose the portions of the device which an app can access. The latest system is quite similar to that of IOS. The apps will need to ask for permission on a case-by-case basis.

This made it quite easy for Android users to choose the information they wish to share. Another useful upgrade to be introduced is known as ‘app linking’. In this process, one app can easily call another app by simply clicking a button or a link. In the older versions of Android, we noticed that a dialog box would pop up asking if the user wanted to open the application. However, this will no longer happen with Marshmallow.

There is also a new feature called ‘Doze’ which improves the battery life for the latest Android devices. In this process, the built-in motion sensors of the phone are used to detect whether a particular device has been used or not. In the meantime, David Burke, the Engineering vice president informed the Verge at the Google I/O conference in May that through doze, the standby time tablet was almost doubled.

In other news, Yibada reported that Android Lollipop 5.1.1 has already been released by U.S Cellular and T-Mobile in the United States for Galaxy S6 and the S6 Edge users. However, the other carriers like T&T, Verizon and Sprint haven’t released this update for their devices yet. As a result, it is being predicted that these carriers might directly provide the Android M update for S6 and S6 Edge devices by skipping Lollipop.

Stay tuned for more updates on the Android 6.0 Marshmallow Update!
