Google has commenced the Android 6.0 Marshmallow rollout for Nexus users. The newly-announced Nexus 5X and 6P will get Android 6.0 out of the box, but the update is being released OTA for the Nexus 5, Nexus 6, Nexus 7 (2013), Nexus 9 and Nexus Player too.
Android 6.0 brings new app permissions for even more control, battery-smart features (Doze and App Standby) to extend battery life, increased fingerprint support for access to Play Store/Android Pay, USB Type-C charging and Google Now on Tap.
Sony Mobile has been quiet about its Marshmallow update plans so far, but we would hope to hear something official soon. We have already seen rival manufacturers such as HTC and Motorola officially announce their Android 6.0 plans.
Judging by history, Sony typically launches the big new Android releases around 3 months after it hits Nexus devices. Therefore, if Sony follows a similar pattern, then we are looking at Android 6.0 arriving not before the turn of the year. If that turns out to be the case, would you be annoyed at the wait or is that within your expectations? We’d love to hear your views in the comments below.
