Google ends the guessing game as it reveals the name of the next android operating system. They officially announce that the Android M or Android 6.0 will be called Marshmallow. The company put up a large Android mascot holding a marshmallow at their headquarters.
Last May, Google unveiled a quick overview of Android M during its annual I/O conference. This latest version of operating system focuses on quality and polish as it improves the core user experience and rethinks the fundamental aspects of how it works for years.
One notable improvement is the web experience within apps. This is made possible with the Chrome Custom Tabs. This feature allows developers to inherit the look and feel of Chrome within apps that uses web content.
Google also add a new power-saving feature hailed as Doze. Doze uses motion detection in determining if the device is no longer in use. Once it detects that the device is idle, most of the background apps and services will be suspended to prolong battery life.
Along with this announcement, Google also release the final M developer preview (MPA44G) suitable for Nexus 5, Nexus 6 and Nexus 9.
