It seems that Google does not want to make its loyal customers feel enough with what they have. After releasing its Android 5.0 Lollipop in November last year, now Google has launched its latest Android version. Still using ‘edible’ name, Google launched Android 6.0 Marshmallow last month. So, how does it look like? It is marshmallow, yummy…
Advantages of Android 6.0 Marshmallow
The truth is that Google wants to address any foibles brought by Lollipop. The latest version of android looks smart with the coming of new features, such as Now on Tap. This feature works to inform the users on what the apps (installed on the device) are doing. The following are some advantages you will enjoy with Android 6.0 Marshmallow:
- Better search experience and voice commands. Yes, Marshmallow is more customizable than the previous versions are.
- More control with new permission features. The users will be faced with more frequent app permission. Android 6.0 Marshmallow alerts you any time the apps in the your device try to do something, and you have the chance to deny or allow it.
- Blurs between external and internal storage
- Improved finger print; the latest android version is equipped with excellent sensors that pickup your finger touches in quick and accurate way.
Disadvantages of Android 6.0 Marshmallow
The latest android version run runs on limited number of android devices, namely not more than 0.3 percent of the existing devices, while the previous version, Lollipop runs on nearly 26 percent and Kit Kat on 38 percent of active devices. Does Google mean to reduce the coverage constantly? Only good can answer.
In addition, the new feature – Now on Tap – is not perfect for any reasons; sometimes it misses and swings. For some users, the new permission feature may be troublesome, as it delays the app process since the user has to give the permission first. Finally, Google has not clarified the missing Dark Mode, as it seems disappearing in the latest android version.
