While the rest of the Android world is anticipating the latest Android 6.0 Marshmallow update on their devices, Google has rolled out an OTA Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow update to its Nexus range of phones and tablets.
This new update is said to bring new emojis to the Nexus devices. Owners of the Nexus 5X, Nexus 6P, Nexus Player and older variants of Nexus tablets and smartphones should be able to receive a notification for the latest Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow OTA update very soon. Google has also made available an Android 6.0.1 M factory images download
through its Android Open Source Project website.
The Android 6.0.1 roll out is expected to take some time to reach all the Nexus devices, but here are some of the Google Nexus variants to set to receive it: Nexus 6P ‘angler’, Nexus ‘shamu’ 6, Nexus 5X ‘bullhead’, Nexus 5 ‘hammerhead’, Nexus 9 ‘volantis’ (Wi-Fi only), Nexus Player ‘fugu’, Nexus 9 LTE ‘volantisg’, Nexus 7 2013 (cellular) and (WiFi only) ‘razorg’.
The Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow update will come with the latest Unicode 8 emoji, which will see the Google Keyboard’s emoji section increase the number of emoji tabs from seven to ten. The update also features security changes and bug fixes for Android M.
In addition, it will bring back the ‘Do not disturb mode’ with ‘until next alarm’ option which was omitted by the Android 6.0 Marshmallow. This neat feature can be set up so that you don’t get any other notification alerts other than from your alarm.
