Android 6 features

Marshmallow is the 11th release of Android operating system. Each big release of android comes up with a name. This version of android was named Marshmallow also codenamed Android M. After the release of this version all the android users are now very excited about android 6 features. Each time with such update, android comes up with better updates. I still remember the old days when the operating system didn’t even have a proper system to kill apps.

However, android 6 features will not disappoint you at all. Though it has been more than seven months since the operating system was released, it is yet not available for most of the devices available at the market. At the beginning, only a very few devices supported which include Nexus 5, Nexus 6 and Nexus 9 tablets. After long eight months of release, the number hasn’t increased that much. The android 6 features are the following:

Android 6 menu

New menu

Well I think, in each update, the least change is done to a menu. The menu icons, position and sizes don’t seem to be changing much. Well, it doesn’t stay the same always but the changes are not that much in numbers. But in this version,  the menu is changed and it will look way different comparing to the last version android 5 or Lollipop.

Android phones have a lots of menu items in it. Sometimes it seems boring to scroll through all of them. So, in this update android authority decided to add submenus. For the items that are used is a part of another menu and accessed by that parent menu.


While using a device, animation makes it lot more interesting as well as user friendly. Android marshmallow has better than ever animation. It is mostly visilbe while using the built in features of a device. Animation in an app is not related to the operating system.


The new typography in android 6 is really stylish. The text has gone bolder, number are thicker which gives the clock a better look. In the previous update, the typography was changed and everybody seemed to like it. Well this time, it is even better

Fingerprint support

Before this version of android, fingerprint was not vastly supported by operating system itself, but now it is. You do not need to root your phone or use some third party apps to get this new android 6 features, it is preloaded.

Apps and battery management

It is always very important thing about any android device, how will be the battery performance after this update? Well, among all android 6 features, the apps and battery management is going to impress the users. The operating system will have the code of conduct in managing the processes made by apps. By minimizing the background activity, the user should have better experience.

So, these are the most important android 6 features that you should know about. There are a lot of them though. But I think, these are the ones that the users look forward too. I won’t lie but google is taking way too much time in making this version available to all devices but after all, this is google so they will enhance the new android 6 features and make it available very soon.
