Google Announces Android M is 'Android Marshmallow' [Video]

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.

you guys speak a lot about android being insecure. But iOS is capable of being hacked too. Everything is. But the truth is that none of these OSes (not windows or mac) is as secure as google's chromeOS. It uses cloud based data. And updates are instant the second you turn on the laptop. You can't hack chromeOS unless the hacker had the physical device or actually hacked into google itself (who have the most brilliant hackers working for them) you'd have to be supernatural or made of electricity to transport yourself into the data bases and mess things up. Google chrome is and will always be 0% fragmentated because all chrome books old and new are updated. Google is also changing the way android runs hahaha. Ever hear of dart language? May take several years but once it's complete. Android will be Java free and completely cloud based and I'm sure native apps and downloading will still be available too. But it will be the most secure OS that ever existed. iOS won't have that advantage anymore. Google has already acquired agawi which will spearhead cloud apps even further. They have plans to give everyone free wifi. Yes everyone like the entire planet. New York already has this being set up right now. Schools are buying chrome books more than iPads because the schools now realize that the iPad is a gaming toy and does not help much in learning when they is no keyboard. Hot plus it's really expensive to buy 500 iPads compared to 500 chrome books. Kids are learning how to code now what good is an iPad when you want to code? Chrome OS does not require a powerful processor to be as fast as a MacBook. It turns out chrome OS can do almost 80% of what a full-fledged laptop can do. Google Docs Google sheets it's all there for students. Not including professionals. And it will all be updated instantly and never have a virus ever.

Haven't you heard about the rootless OS being worked on by Apple? It'll blow Google's feeble attempt out of the water. And 80%???? It's that missing 20% that'll keep chrome books from ever being viable as a platform that can come anywhere near competing with a MacBook. And it's free Wi-Fi you speak of? Xfinity is doing the same thing. Do you know how they do it? They force you as a user to be a mule for their hotspot. Your router automatically has an Xfinity Wi-Fi network on it that anyone can sign into that has a Comcast/Xfinity account. Personally, I remove the RF module from my two in one, and just hooked it up as a modem to my router with DD-WRT (for security purposes). I've said it in this same forum, and I'll say it again. Security is 99% the users responsibility. When it comes to OS selection...functionality should be what is the main factor in the decision. That's why I use Apple products. Functionality. I can manage my own security, and just because you or whomever is either not educated enough or too unwilling to learn how to keep their machine and network secure, you rely on such things to help you along. Your one else's.

All you Android fanboys can talk all the smack you want, but do a web search for the OS (Desktop or Mobile) which is the biggest target for badware, or for which there is the most badware for. Guess what the answer is? You got it...Android. Wanna know why? Two main reasons. Number one; android is open-source and even had badware in the Google Play store. Now that's just piss-poor management. The second reason? Android phones are marketed to the lower income crowd. That's not a personal affront to anyone, just a stone-cold fact. That means that more people can afford them, therefore more people own one and suitably, there is more badware to take advantage of the both above stated FACTS. So if you want a cheaply-made phone who's App Store is plagued with badware, by all an Android. If you want security and pleasure and ease of use, with a well made quality phone, buy an iPhone. FACTS.every OS will always have security holes, because that are made by people, and people aren't perfect. The difference is which one is managed the best by the manufacturer and which is built with quality and the user in mind. As of 2007 until now...that manufacturer is it or not. Another fact. So get over yourselves and your Android complex, and stop trying to defend your piece of shit phone. You bought it, deal with it.

Do you know why android fanboys are here? That's because they are not satisfied with their OS. And they need to let go of that bad feeling inside. That explains why they keep bashing on apple forums. --android>apple--? Bwhahahahhaa android fanboys makes me laugh. An OS that has incredible hardware specs, yet barely competes with a 1GBram dual core iphone. Lol

Do you know why android fanboys are here? Because its morons like you that dont understand things, even though this is an apple site, they post android stuff on here too MORON, look at the BLOG topic then talk. Apple will never touch Google, you know why because unlike Google, Apple has sh@t an overpriced laptop that barely has software, its like buying a blackberry more secure then iOS and yet it lacks software. I have a news for you, GOOGLE is a GIANT and that company has WAY BETTER , Browsers, Encryption, in fact Google blocks out more malware and viruses then your iOS that why was ranked number 1 browser. If you hate google so much, DONT USE OUR BROWSER to search for stuff, USE YOUR SHIT MACBOOKS browser, whatever browser you use, it will still go through GOOGLE, they control the internet lines, searches and everything else for that matter. Quality lets see, apples qualites. iPhone 4 attenagate, iPhone 5 chipping black paint that was chipping off, iPhone 6 Plus, bendgate, Apple watch burngate, every unit its more crap then the next. Maybe your OS maybe more stable, but your limited to do nothing, and you whole life has to depend on ICRAP TUNES, without that you cant do F@ALL. People like to be free, customize what they want, use what they want, without the crap of your iCloud Locks and BS, I here people b@itching on the time, can someone please fix iCloud. Its 2015 and your still running DUAL CORE, you still at 1GB RAM, you still at 1080P screen, which if apple is so innovative they would have won the best screen guess who did, SAMSUNG WON, best display. Whats your excuse the poor mans mentality, 1GB is all we need, but if they announce 3GB you lick TIM COOKS @SS and clap like its INNOVATION. Apple gives its users what they deserve, cheap products, and boost prices high, SAMSUNG on the other hand, costs more to make, and they make less profit margin. Im sure any business man will love seeing those GAY COLOR OS on their phones. What the hell is iPhone, sounds like tampon, iPAD, hahahaha Everything is I? Here is one for you iMORON! Oh by the way, forgot to mention, what does the Latest model Macbook run on??? OH YA THATS RIGHT, INTEL CHIPS. Where is your Apple chips they were running before, didnt do crap, and iPHONE, OH YA, Samsung made chips, unlike apple, Samsung makes their own chips, thats innovation 8 cores, who care about the OS, And your saying OS sucks, Samsung does not make OS, they are a chip company not a software company like apple. So learn something before ranting on here. DUMB FUK!
