Android M is no more. Instead, we now have a fluffy, sweet, almost ethereal Marshmallow. That's the name Google has given to version 6.0 of the operating system, continuing its long-running, sugary naming tradition—although Android has been tasting a little sour lately, like licorice and raisins.
That slight bitterness aside, the official christening also marks the release of the Android 6.0 SDK, which can be downloaded via Android Studio's SDK Manager. Developers can also download updated system images for the Nexus 5, 6, 9, and Player devices. The Android API is now version 23, and Google has likewise updated its Android Support Library, allowing developers to test new functionality while retaining backwards compatibility.
Android 6.0 includes new features like fingerprint support, a power saving mode called Doze, a streamlined permissions model, unicorns, and software updates direct from Google for all devices. OK, so I was joking about that last one, but a man can dream.
