A new year, a new version of Android. Android Marshmallow, the newfangled Google’s Android mobile operating system, is seen used by a limited number of users. Back in October of 2015 Google started shipping the Nexus 5X and Nexus 6P, but it is understandable from the low enactment rate that Android 6.0 Marshmallow handsets are not exactly being bought off the shelves. LG is offering it on some of its flagship G4 smartphones.
Other manufacturers, such as Samsung, have circulated ideas to protuberate it early this year, which should boost Marshmallow’s growth rate as users won’t have to download it or get their devices upgraded to take advantage of its features. Numerous technological experts believe that the lackadaisical adoption of users to the latest Android version can be due to the onerous and often frustrating process of upgrading a device, because of carrier soak testing. News coming straight from Google’s Platform Versions website for Android state that Android 6.0 Marshmallow is now on 1.2 percent of Android devices from its release date. The stats are offered from Google’s Android Developer Dashboard. Whereas, Lollipop, which was first released back in 2014, secured new users over the period of the past month to pull out a 34.1 percent slice of all devices.
It may incomparably improve on the older version of Android in matters of security, User Interface, and notably the Google integration. The endorsement of Marshmallow should accelerate in coming months, with Samsung last week sending out its rollout in South Korea for the Galaxy S6 and S6 edge. Provided that these devices turn out to be prominent with punters, should boost the number of active devices running Marshmallow. Every version of Google’s mobile operating system has taken some time to kick in, and Marshmallow is pursuing in the trudged footsteps of its sweeter cousins.
