Android Marshmallow is made official, will be 6.0; final Developer Preview update


Today, Google has officially announced the moniker of Android M, which will be Marshmallow. On top of that, Android Marshmallow will be version 6.0, not the rumored 5.2 we’ve heard earlier. This comes with the latest Android M Developer Preview for the Nexus devices. The official statement can be seen below.

Whether you like them straight out of the bag, roasted to a golden brown exterior with a molten center, or in fluff form, who doesn’t like marshmallows? We definitely like them! Since the launch of the M Developer Preview at Google I/O in May, we’ve enjoyed all of your participation and feedback. Today with the final Developer Preview update, we’re introducing the official Android 6.0 SDK and opening Google Play for publishing your apps that target the new API level 23 in Android Marshmallow.

Another interesting announcement is that the Google Play Store is now ready to take on Android 6.0 applications. That means that apps that are made with the API 23 will be available to the Developer Preview users.

To download the latest Android M Developer Preview head over to the official website and download it for either your Nexus 5, 6, 9, or Nexus Player. What are your thoughts on the name Marshmallow?
