In Short

The latest generation of Android follows along nicely with the sweet-flavored names of the past, this time dubbed Marshmallow. This version promises to follow in the Material Design footsteps created by its predecessor and focuses on even greater polish for the entire platform.

Android 6.0 Marshmallow exists on a multitude of devices, with more carriers & devices receiving updates in the near future. The biggest features in this version are small things people will appreciate every day, like individual app permissions, native support for fingerprint sensors, and granular context features for Google Now. We're also seeing developers do more with Chrome, better app-to-app communication, and new power management features.
