Android M stands for Marshmallow

After all the teasing and speculating, Google has revealed what the “M” in Android M stands for. Just like most people predicted, it stands for Marshmallow. The Android version number is going to be Android 6.0 and it will be released to the public in the fall along with 2 new nexus devices.

The first developer preview was released at Google I/O, and I even made a video showcasing the new features of the Android M Developer Preview.

The key aspects which Android M will target are based over user’s Web Experience, different App Permissions, App Links and much more. For more info on what’s new with Android M, check out my other article where I go over all the new features here.

Along with unveiling the Marshmallow name, they also released the final M Developer Preview (MPA44G) for the Nexus 5, Nexus 6, and Nexus 9. The Images are available now if you are intrested in trying. Check it out here.

The Android M API Level will be API 23 as we knew before.

Google even revealed the new statue at the Google HQ earlier.


And this Behind the Scenes video also dropped. Check it out!
