Alarm Option For Do Not Disturb Mode Is Back With Android 6.0.1.

Android 6.0.1 begins rolling out today, bringing with it a minor tablet layout tweak, the reintroduction of setting up “Do not disturb” to stop at the next alarm, and—far, far more important than either of those—the introduction and reinvention of a couple hundred emoji. With every new version of Android there is always going to be a few changes whether it’s in the form of new features, or old features being taken away.

In all there are over 200 new emoji in Android 6.0.1. 40 of these are staples that have been revised; “prayer hands” now looks much more like its iOS counterpart than it does a Buddha blowing his nose, and the poop emoji now has eyes and a cowlick. For those that use alarms frequently enough this was a sad thing to see go, and by all accounts it looked like Google might not ever bring it back as it wasn’t introduced in the initial launch of Android 6.0 Marshmallow that started heading out to devices this Fall. If you’re on a Nexus device which is receiving the software upgrade to Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow, then you should notice the return of the “until next alarm” option for Do Not Disturb mode as it was there with version of Lollipop. Although this is certainly good news, it really only matters at this point for those already on Android 6.0, or the developer preview, as those are the only users who have seen the removal of the functionality. Likewise, there are no details about the price or availability, but speculations are rife that Google will stay closer to the $229 price point for the 16GB variant and $269 for the 32GB model.

With the fall in the sales of tablet, even it’s arch rival Apple has been witnessing low iPad sales, it is to be seen if Google and Huawei can recreate the magic with the Nexus 7 2016. Earlier today Google started rolling out the Android 6.0.1 update to compatible Nexus devices, so you may already have the software, and the factory images were posted earlier today as well so you can update to it manually if you have the know-how. In our review, we found that at Rs 39,999, the Google Nexus 6P is the Android smartphone to go for if you are looking for a smooth experience, stock Android OS, great camera and a good battery life.
