Google has begun pushing out the Android Marshmallow update. This new version of the mobile operating system includes new features and bug fixes across the platform. Although the rollout began today, end users will have to wait for their phone manufacturers to port the OS to their platforms in order to use it.
This means the most likely place to encounter Android Marshmallow is on new phones, as Google still struggles to push updates through distributors and into users hands. For those who must have the new OS, Google’s most recent Nexus phones will be shipping with it.
Outside of distribution woes, however, Google has taken some strides with this release. One of its primary themes has been a redesign of the home screen to include new features, such as predictive apps, search, and an uninstall button to make it easier to remove applications from the phone.
