Pushbullet adds new Marshmallow features in latest update

Pushbullet, the popular files transfer app, has updated its Android client with support for several new Marshmallow features. The app now utilizes the new runtime permissions, meaning you can selectively grant or deny access to various requests from it.

Additionally, Pushbullet has added Direct Share support, and reduced the size of the APK by 25 percent. A full list of the changes found in version 17 include:

  • Uses runtime permissions (Android 6.0+)
  • Added Direct Share support, putting your recent devices right in the Share menu (Android 6.0+)
  • Notification actions are mirrored now on Marshmallow
  • Possible MMS fix for those affected on Marshmallow, please confirm via Send feedback
  • Reduced apk size by 25%
  • Many bugfixes and performance improvements

You can grab the latest update from Google Play, though keep in mind you'll need to be running Marshmallow to take advantage of most of the new features.
