1. Now On Tap
This is one of the stands out feature of the Android Marshmallow. The now on tap is like a predictive assistant, which help you out when you need its help. Consider the below example, to understand it a better way.
Here’s out it works: While you busy on any app and need the Google help, you don’t need to google it! Just press and hold the home button, Google will read your screen and find something interesting for you.
2. Case-by-case permission
This sound insanely boring, but this is one of an important update. This feature means when you go to open up the camera in Instagram, for instance. Instagram could deliver a pop-up asking if you want to let it access your camera. That way, you know exactly when an app is using a feature and why it’s using it. It also means you can download and install an app, use most of it. But prevent it from doing one or two things that you disapprove of.
3. Fingerprint support
Google in the last few years has been working hard on fingerprint support. Well, the technology may have already been released on some of the Android phones. Now, soon they will be introduced in all Android phones. That means your next Android phone will likely let you use a fingerprint sensor to unlock your phone, make payments, and log into various apps and services.
4. USB Type C
One cable to connect all. Marshmallow adds support for USB Type-C for Android phones and tablets, so there’s a very good chance that your next phone will use it. Get ready — you’ll never stab a Micro USB cable in the wrong direction again.
One of the biggest problems of any smartphone is the battery life, Marshmallow comes with a new feature name Doze to sort this problem out. Doze, a new feature in Marshmallow, monitors how your device is being used and adjusts app activity accordingly.
Here’s out it works: Basically, if you aren’t using a tablet all day while it lies on your table, Marshmallow will simply pause your apps so they don’t drain your battery.
6. Better Cut, Copy and Paste
Another small change of the Android Marshmallow is the Cut, Copy and Paste. Rather than jumping from one screen to another, Marshmallow will float the options directly above the text you’ve selected. It’s pretty much identical to how iOS do it, and it’s a solid change.
7. Chrome inside other apps
Marshmallow understands their user, as a result now you won’t need to kick out of the app and load the website. The marshmallow will allow apps to pre-load certain web content before sending you over to an in-app Chrome tab. It gives more of a smoother experience.
