Android 6.0: ‘Marshmallowing’ your Device

Published on 15 March 16

When it comes to delivering the best, Google is not behind anyone. With its Android Marshmallow, it has decided to change the way everyone looks at their smartphones. Below we have gathered some important features that will make you fall in love with this Operating System:

Android Pay

It is now easier to make your payments via Near Field Communication (NFC). Moreover, Methods of host-card emulation also are made available for using tap-to-pay services. Everything you need to do is to open your gadget, place it near a NFC terminal and your payment is done, that too without opening any app. Google quotes that a virtual account number would be created when you add the details of your card. One of the amazing facts is that during the exchange your original card number is not stored at any cost.

Dozing’ the Battery

A requirement for better battery life has always remained a concern for every smartphone. However, Android has come up with a ‘doze’ feature in order to improve the battery life effectively. It lets your device to go into hibernation mode when it recognizes that your device is not in use.

Usually normal devices consume up to fifteen to twenty-five percent of battery life. However, Android M reduces it up to only three to five percent, thus increasing the standby limit by two weeks.

App permissions

One feature that usually annoys a user is that when there is a need to download the app, it requires you to allow all the stated permissions, whether you agree with it or not. Well, you won’t be facing any such problems with the Android M as it enables you to pick and choose permissions according to your need for each single application. It will enable you to accept or deny the request for permission by an app.

USB Type C

Marshmallow comes up with the supported USB type C, that is beneficial for future devices. Making its debut with Nexus 5 in 2015, it enables a person to charge the device at a much faster rate. Not only that, you can also charge other devices with your charger.

Lesser Pre-Installed Apps

It is now easier for the manufacturers to eliminate the previous installed applications on the devices. Lesser bloatware means that there would be more space for other important applications.

Other Enhancements

Besides these main features, other features from Android M include an efficient copy/paste function. You get a tool bar in which all the cut, copy, paste function is present. The Direct Share feature lets you share images or links with most frequently utilized applications or contacts with just a tap of a finger. Furthermore, you get an option of drop-down menu under volume controls, a common feature in Cyanogen OS.

For Android app developers to start the development of apps that incorporates these features of Marshmallow, there is a need to download the Android SDK, followed by the SDK manager for downloading Android 6.0 SDK platform and its system images.

Lastly, in case a need arises for the synchronization of the app across devices on web or other platforms, getting in touch with a web application development company is a feasible option.
