Google has announced that its next generation Android M software is officially called Android Marshmallow.
Since the launch of the M Developer Preview at Google I/O in May, we’ve enjoyed all of your participation and feedback. Today with the final Developer Preview update, we’re introducing the official Android 6.0 SDK and opening Google Play for publishing your apps that target the new API level 23 in Android Marshmallow.
The final Android 6.0 SDK is now available to download and developers are being encouraged to get their apps ready. Although the Android 6.0 SDK is final, the devices system images are still developer preview versions.
Android 6.0 Marshmallow launches to the public later this fall and it will compete with iOS 9 which Apple is expected to release alongside the iPhone 6s next month. Click here to learn more about Android M and iOS 9.
