Are You Ready For Android 6.0 Marshmallow ? 3 Great Features You Need To Anticipate For. | Mobile phone latest news Google+ Follow Smartfonefreaks on Twitter

The most advance open source smartphone Operating System Android will be releasing its 6.0 Marshmallow starting 5 Oct 2015 and it'll be rolling out first to Google Nexus devices (Nexus 5,6,7,9 and Player).

Although i learnt some great features are coming with this new update and i'll be listing three of the most obvious and well creative features we perhaps never knew would be coming this soon. But before then you need to understand that if you don't get any push notification to download the update this year, sources says we can chill till early 2016 but i'm most certain there's going to be a way to get the update this year without waiting till it gets pushed to our devices (Just like How We Got Windows 10 Without Waiting *wink* ). We'll bring that tip one's it's available.

Some HTC phones that might get this Android 6.0 Marshmallow swiftly are HTC One M9, HTC One M8 and HTC One M9+ because they are high end smartphones with default Lollipop OS however, Sony and Samsung high end smartphones might also get this ASAP.

If your Android is Kitkat and lower, unfortunately your device might never see the daylight of Marshmallow, haven said that let's get back to the three hot features we can't wait to explore.

Fingerprint sensors have already popped up here and there on Android phones, but soon, they're probably going to be everywhere. That's because Google is building dedicated support for fingerprint sensors into Android, so that phone makers don't have to code it all in on their own. 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. Basically, it's going to be a huge convenience for both the people making Android phones and the people using them.

Google Now on Tap is easily Marshmallow's standout feature. It takes Google Now — the predictive assistant that's been beside your home screen for a couple years — and lets it crawl through your apps so that you can get extra info on basically anything almost instantly.
Here's how it works: your press and hold the home button while inside of any app, and Google Now will read the screen, look for anything interesting — like the name of a celebrity, an event, or a location — and then return information on what it sees in a little popup box on the bottom of the screen.
If someone texts you the name of a restaurant, for instance, Now on Tap might see its name and present you with its location on a map. Or if you're on a news story about a celebrity, Now on Tap might pull up their information from Wikipedia or give you the chance to jump to their page in the IMDb app.
It's an incredibly cool feature, and our initial tests showed it working quite well (albeit under a controlled environment). This is going to be a big deal in Marshmallow and — more than likely — future versions of Android as well.

App Backup and Restore 

Switching to a new phone or restoring an existing phone that you wipe is a huge pain with Android devices. Beginning with Marshmallow, however, that’s going to change.
When an Android 6.0 device is idle and connected to Wi-Fi, it will automatically backup app data and settings to Google Drive behind the scenes. If you ever wipe your phone or switch to a new one, you’ll finally be able to quickly and easily restore all of your apps as they were previously.
