With its new features targeting to improve user experience, phone performance, functionality, and security, Android 6.0 Marshmallow will push aside the Android 5.0 Lollipop on Google's official software update release to be held in October. Such improvements that also answer the issues in Lollipop are the App Permissions update, app deep linking, Now on Tap, Android Pay, Doze, and much more.
One of the most common issues on a smartphone is the battery life. However, Google is trying to fix this problem by bringing a new feature to Android 6.0 Marshmallow. It seems that the feature will be called 'Doze' and it will optimize the background processes, which will result in less power usage.According to rumors, the new 'Doze' feature will increase the Nexus 9's battery life by almost two hours compared to the Android 5.0 Lollipop.
It seems that Google Now has been significantly improved in the upcoming Android 6.0 Marshmallow. The users will be able to run the 'OK Google' command from any part of the screen. In addition, the virtual assistant will come with a 'Now on Tap' feature, which will allow you to bring up important information while performing other tasks.
Google has worked pretty much on the Android Pay feature. It seems that this feature is going to be added on the Android 6.0 Marshmallow and the users will be able to make payments using the NFC system. You will need to enter some card details and Google will create a virtual account that will allow you to make payments via the NFC feature.
Currently, fingerprint scanners are the highest security standards on a smartphone. Google will bring this feature to the Android 6.0 Marshmallow. It seems that the big search engine company is already working with different smartphone manufacturers, in order to make a standard API that will allow the users to make payments, purchase applications, unlock the device and more, when they'll scan their fingerprints.
The App Permissions is going to be introduced in the Android 6.0, which will allow the users to decide how much access a particular application can get before even installing it. For now, the users can't customize these permissions and they will just need to accept the default permission for each application or else they will not be able to install the application.
