Google has released the 3rd Developer Preview (probably the final preview) of Android M system image (build: MPA44G), which is now available for Nexus 5, Nexus 6, Nexus 9 and Nexus Player. Not only that, Google has also unveiled the name for the next big OS update. It would be called ‘Marshmallow’ and the OS version will be Android 6.0.
The finished version of Android 6.0 Marshmallow will roll out later this fall. Early adopters can test out features before the official release using the Developer Preview. However, please note that this is a beta version of the OS, which is designed for app developers to test out their product on it.
Android 6.0 Marshmallow will not be a big update like Android 5.0 Lollipop, but it does not mean Android M will not have any new feature. It includes a new way to shop using your phone (Android pay), a smarter Google Now, longer battery life and will have finger print reader support. It will also fix thousands of bugs that were in Android 5.1 as well as restore popular features that were lost in Lollipop.
Interested users can download and install the preview version of Android 6.0 Marshmallow (build: MPA44G) on their Nexus 5, Nexus 6, Nexus 9 and Nexus Player.
Note: If you have already installed the previous preview Android M system image on your device, you will get the OTA (over-the-air) notification for the new update.
