Similar to the approach that Google had taken last year with Lollipop, the company held off on revealing the official name of its latest mobile operating system when it announced Android M earlier this year. But the suspense—and I guess the endless dessert-name guessing on Twitter—ends today.
Android M is now officially Android Marshmallow, OS version 6.0, and here is the accompanying Android statue that was unveiled on Google’s campus to commemorate the event.
Google is rumored to be preparing to launch two Nexus smartphones this year to showcase Marshmallow. Older Nexus devices are expected to receive the update later this fall.
