Google has made its fight acute against iOS and released one more advanced OS as Android 6.0 Marshmallow. It has many cloying features in the form of advanced API to offer awesome functionality. Let’s know about some selected features and functionality.
Google is constantly trying to beat its rivals on mobile OS platform by updating its products and performance through various measures and Android OS update is one of them. In the last I/O conference in May, it has released a beta version of new Android OS 6.0 to test and coded it as Android M.
Secure Android Pay:
When money transaction is involved, security becomes the prime issue therefore, Google has included the biometric technologies to authenticate the transactions as well as used as the password for many other purposes including unlocking a phone. In due course, it has added support for fingerprints recognition at OS level.
Now on Tap to Deep Link:
Technically Google Now is an application that provides relevant information quickly. In previous versions of Android OS, users have to leave the existing applications like chats, SMS, etc. to explore the Google Now for relevant information and revert to the app after finishing the tasks.
In Marshmallow OS, users don’t need to switch in between two applications, but Now on Tap will deep link users into the relevant apps quickly and seamlessly. For example, if your friend is on the tour and describe her experiences with a hotel, you can use Now on Tap feature to access hotel reviews, menus, and other info without leaving the chat application.
USB-C Connection Support:
USB-C drives are vital in day-to-day functions accomplished with Android devices. Therefore, Google has added support for USB-C connectors at OS level in Marshmallow to insert any side up without any compatibility issue.
Rigidity in permission granting may result into inferior user experiences. Therefore, with Marshmallow, Google has introduced flexibility and allows multiple selection options during permission settings or whenever being asked for any permission. Thus, users can grant permissions for camera and microphone access simultaneously for an app, select anyone, or none at all.
Sharing content on social media is the demand of the moment. Therefore, Google has enabled users to share the content of any app directly to the social networking applications using the valid links.
The most interesting thing for this feature is that it allows users to share content to the targets such as contacts, friends, fans, followers, groups, etc. without diving deeper in social networking apps’ interfaces.
Auto backup for apps provides full data security so Google has attached backup with Google account.
This feature enables users to engage with an app through an assistant in every context.
This API brings conversational voice experiences into the Android app. Through the voice action, activity is triggered and let user accomplish tasks quickly and with native mobile experiences while on the go.
Android Marshmallow supports Bluetooth stylus and other Bluetooth functionality including Bluetooth Low Energy Scanning.
