Its Official Android “M” is Marshmallow

You must have remembered when Dave Burke was wearing an Android wear smartwatch with a watchface of “Milkshake” in Google I/O 2015 and all the world just said that Android M is Android Milkshake but he denied the news next day. But today Jamal Eason, Android Product Manager shared the news of what M in real life is. He posted the update on his official Google+ account. He revealed that M is for Marshmallow…the official Android 6.0 SDK is out, with an updated set of Developer Preview Images. And in an official blog-post he on the behalf of google said that:

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!

Have a look to his post.


Now as we all know now that Android M is Android Marshmallow. Google also announced that Android Marshmallow will be Android 6.0 which is all obvious. We are jumping to the next version of Android. Another important update is that the final Android 6.0 SDK is now available to download via the SDK Manager in Android Studio. The new preview will rollout over-the-air (OTA) or can be flashed through factory images. Along with the Android 6.0 SDK, Google has also updated the Android Support Library to v23

From today you also can upload your Android Marshmallow apps to Google Play. Google Play is now ready to accept your API 23 apps via the Google Play Developer Console on all release channels (Alpha, Beta & Production). At the consumer launch this fall, the Google Play store will also be updated so that the app install and update process supports the new permissions model for apps using API 23.

Update: Google just shared the Android Marshmallow statue unveiling video on official Android YouTube channel. Lets watch it.
