The Nexus 6P was created by Hauwei, which was given the opportunity to test the Android 6.0 Marshmallow on this phablet, but two months later, Google has released version 6.0.1 and the owners started receiving it in phases. In less than one week, all the important previous Nexus devices have been updated to Android 6.0.1, a new version which comes with new emoji characters, a security patch and new features. So, if you’re one of the users who haven’t updated yet, in this article we’ll tell you everything you need to know about Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow, which is downloaded in less than a minute.
Before downloading Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow on your Nexus 6P device, make sure that the phone has 50 percent battery left and that you’re connected to a wireless network, in case you have a limited data plan. Since there is no official change log for this update, the users who installed it, were kind enough to give more information about Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow.
Some user who installed Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow said that, three days later after installing the update, he noticed a small improvement in terms of battery life, thanks to the enhancements that have been made to the Doze feature. It seems that the battery loses 4-5 percent of juice overnight and the device can be used an entire day under normal conditions. But, if there are problems with the battery life, the users can perform a factory data reset.
Google Now on Tap has a new feature which allows the users to take screenshots (on any Android device), so they will no longer struggle with the power and volume down buttons, as now there is a share button on the bottom left which appears when long-pressing home. After the screenshot is taken, it can be easily shared using the share menu.
The text message or picture message bug which was slipped on 6.0 Marshmallow has been fixed, and there weren’t found any other issues, which means that the performance of 6.0.1 Marshmallow should be very satisfying. Also, the users will enjoy the 200 new emoji characters from the keyboard.
WiFi & Bluetooth
There is no need to worry about potential connectivity problems, because no Nexus 6P user has complained until now, which means that the phone works perfectly while connected to a wifi network or while transferring files via Bluetooth.
Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow comes with the UI tuner, which lets the users rearrange icons in the notification bar, by long pressing the gear-shaped settings button. After enabling the System UI tuner option, the users will gain full control over the interface and notification pulldown bar.
