It seems that Google was quite busy this year with the release of the new Android 6.0 Marshmallow, Nexus 5X, Nexus 6P, Chromecast 2 and the new Google Pixel C hybrid tablet.

However, the main event was the release of the Android 6.0 Marshmallow, which a lot of Android fans have expected for quite a while. Google announced the new Android OS during the annually Google I/O expo, which took place in the US.

The Android 6.0 Marshmallow comes with many new features and battery life improvements. In addition, the new OS also fixed many issues that were found in the Android Lollipop OS.

Top Reasons Why You Should Update To Android 6.0 Marshmallow

Battery Optimization

Doze is an application that came with the Android 6.0 Marshmallow. This new application will greatly improve the battery life of your Android device and you will notice this right from the first hours of using your device. In addition the USB Type-C support will help your Android device to charge way faster than before.

Adoptive Storage

It seems that the Android 6.0 Marshmallow allows your Android device to “adopt” an external memory device such as the microSD card and treat it as an onboard storage.

Android RAM Manager

The new Android RAM Manager will continuously keep an “eye” on your device’s Random Access Memory, showing clearly how much RAM the applications are using. This way, you will know which application is using more RAM and if you want to uninstall it or not.

App Permissions

Android 6.0 Marshmallow comes with app permission, which will give you full control of what features can be accessed by the applications that you install on your Android device. Until now, you couldn’t edit the features that an application can access, but it seems that Google understood that the users need to have more control over the applications that run on their devices.

Fingerprint Scanner And Android Pay

Android 6.0 Marshmallow comes with the fingerprint scanning support with the new Android Pay feature that allows you to make payments without having to write your password whenever you buy something using this service. With other words, whenever you will want to make a payment using the Android Pay feature, you will just need to use the fingerprint feature and you’re done. At the same time, the fingerprint feature can be used to unlock your device or unlock applications.
