The Android 6.0 – Marshmallow reviewed – It is all about power and polish

Google Play Store 5.10.30 APK Download Available – Install On Smartphone Or PC.

Those who rely the world’s most popular operating system can expect a new update late in October, Android 6.0, codenamed “Marshmallow.” As you likely know, Google choose confectionary names for its OS versions, such as “Ice Cream Sandwich” (Android 4.0), “Jelly Bean” (Android 4.1 to 4.3.1), “KitKat” (Android 4.4) and “Lollipop” (Android 5.0 to 5.1.1). Teased last week by Google UI engineer Kirill Grouchnikov, the Google Play store is now officially refreshed, updated and coming to an Android near you.

Last November, when Android 5.0 Lollipop was hitting devices, people could foresee that the new material design aesthetic from Google had made sure the device could not be mistaken for any previous versions of the OS, and that was great.The guidelines concerning the Android OEMs were revised in August in another effort by Google to reduce the number of pre-installed apps on Android devices. It’ll rollout first on new Nexus phones this week, but the free update for other Android devices will be handled by the smartphone or tablet maker – and that can take a few weeks or even longer. With Android 6.0, simply tap and hold the Home button to activate “Now on Tap,” which provides contextually-relevant info and apps tied to what you’re doing on the phone.

First of all, you will need to install the “Unknown Sources” feature that allows you to install files that have been downloaded from third party sources. For example, if you’re typing a message to someone about meeting up tomorrow at a café, Now on Tap might show you icons to add the appointment to your calendar, bring up a map of the location, or perhaps a review of the restaurant.

If you don’t have a Wi-Fi connection on your device, you can download the APK file to your computer, the process is quite similar and the only thing that will differ is that you will use the computer to download the APK file. Android 6.0 has a “Doze” feature that automatically puts the device into a sleep state – yet it will still ring if a call comes in, as well as alert you to messages, and wake you up on the AM. Don’t you hate it when every app you install asks you to grant it the same permissions, like access to your camera, microphone, location, and so on?

Now, for a quick round-up: If you are purveying it quick, it is likely that you may not notice anything significant compared to the big update from Android that we got the last year. For one, the keyboard has been refined with commonly-used buttons now easily accessible, such as undo/redo keys, and a new “translate” option to convert words from one language to another on the fly (though it requires the Google Translate app). This year, Android has taken a big leap forward, and a valuable one at that by polishing down some rough edges and making some things look more prominent.

The new operating system also supports a Bluetooth stylus, including pressure sensitivity and modifier keys, to let you write or sketch in various apps. On a related note, you’ll now have the option for your apps to auto backup (and restore), just in case something happens to your device — such as if it’s lost, stolen, or damaged. Previously unavailable during the backup/restore process, Android 6.0 now supports advanced system settings such as your Accessibility settings, sync options, preferred apps, and more. Also the full disk encryption will be enabled by default and from now on all smartphones running Android 6.0 will have to include the ‘Doze mode’.

Device implementations: MUST show a dedicated interface for the user to decide whether to grant the requested runtime permissions and also provide an interface for the user to manage runtime permissions.

MUST NOT grant any runtime permissions to pre-installed apps unless: the user’s consent can be obtained before the application uses it or the runtime permissions are associated with an intent pattern for which the pre-installed application is set as the default handler.
