Google has always named it’s Android OS updates in alphabetical order with the sweetest treat’s ever. So far we’ve had version’s named Cupcake, Donut, Eclair, Froyo, Gingerbread, Honeycomb, Ice Cream Sandwich, Jelly Bean, KitKat and Lollipop. After months of rumors and arguments in the office over the version number and name of the next Android, Google has finally ended the dispute by announcing that Android M will be Android 6.0 Marshmallow. With Android Marshmallow, Google is concentrating on areas including Mobile Payments, Fingerprint Support and Power & Charging. Android M also focusses on the bug fixes. Smartphone’s drain juice and we are all eager to get more battery efficient phones. Google introduced Doze which pump’s up phone’s battery life. Google announced Doze, a new deeper-sleep state for devices running in Android M that uses motion detection to learn when a device is not in use and puts them into a sort of ultra-power-saving mode. Ultimately Doze has the potential to bring up to two times longer battery life without losing out important notifications. With Android M Google will also standardize support for fingerprint sensors. Not only will these be used to unlock and secure your phone, but they are integrated with the new Android Pay mobile payments system, which focuses on simplicity, security and choice. Android Pay is an open API, allowing devices to add it to their own apps. Another new feature in Android M is “Now on Tap”, which is in essence Google Now but wherever you are on your phone. Say for example you’re on WhatsApp with a friend, discussing where to go for dinner and your friend suggests a restaurant that you’ve never heard of. Activating Now on Tap by holding the home button will bring up a trunk load of information’s regarding the restaurant, which includes opening times, reviews, directions from your current location and (if available) table booking facilities and so on. According to Google, the more you use Now on Tap the more it gets accurate. Android M is official and is available to Nexus devices early next week. But when will your phone get Android M? Don’t expect to get it on your device (unless it’s a Nexus) until late 2015/early 2016. But Marshmallow’s is worth the wait!
