Android 6.0 Marshmallow New Amazing Features

I made some Research And found out the New Features In the Android 6.0 Marshmallow that was launched on October. So i recently bought from Jumia and this are my experience when using it privately. This is enhanced technology that i love so much. I would be Dropping My experience and would also expect you to drop yours

  • Fingerprint support

  • Android Marshmallow’s fingerprint support has a new functionality that allows fingerprint scanners to be used not only to unlock phones, but to make purchases when shopping and within Google Play Store apps. Your device will need a hardware fingerprint scanner, but with Google’s full support, you can expect to see these appear on many more future devices.

  • App permissions

  • App permissions have been overhauled in Android M and you can now choose to accept or deny individual permissions. Permissions have also been simplified and will now be requested the first time you try to use a feature, not at the point of installation. For example if you want to record a voice message, WhatsApp will prompt you with a one-time request for permission to use your mic, if you wish to give it access and record the message, you can, but you don’t have to, you can also set permission for the new youtube music app which was launched recently. In this way, Android M is giving you greater control of the information apps can access. You can modify app permissions at anytime in Settings as well as viewing permissions by type and also see which apps have what permissions granted.

    New features inside Android 6.0 Marshmallow

  • Auto backup and restore for apps

  • This feature is used in conjunction with Google Drive to automatically backup app data and settings with a file size of 25 MB or less. These backups will occur once a day and will run only when the device is idle and connected to Wi-Fi and power. If you lose your device or delete the app, your previous progress will be restored the next time you install it. You can also recover lost files and apps here.

  • Google Now

  • Google Now has been improved. It is now smarter and focuses on three key areas: being aware of different contexts, providing answers and helping you take action. Google’s Knowledge Graph now understands one billion different entities, from sports teams to gas stations, TV shows to recipes.

    Google Now is also rolling out a pilot program called Now on Tap with 100 popular apps, so you can ask questions without having to leave the app. This is very useful with apps like Spotify for example, when a song is playing you can ask Google Now, “OK Google, who is this?” without having to leave the app you’re in, Now on Tap will know you’re talking about the musician you’re listening to and provide search results right there and then.

    The same goes for the content of emails, for example, if someone asks you a question about a restaurant or to remember to collect something on your way home, Now on Tap can automatically pop up a restaurant card with Maps as well as offering to set a reminder for whatever it was you were supposed to remember to collect.

  • Web experience

  • Chrome Custom Tabs is a new feature that gives developers a way to harness all of Chrome’s capabilities, while still keeping control of the look and feel of the experience. Chrome Custom Tabs allows apps to open a customized Chrome window on top of the active app, instead of the Chrome app launching separately. This provides a faster and more intuitive user-experience for navigating between apps and the web. Chrome Custom Tabs supports automatic sign-in, saved passwords, autofill and multi-process security to assist the integration of the app and web experience. So if you look at an app such as Pinterest, their custom tab will have a Pinterest share button embedded in and it can also include custom overflow menu options, all without the need for Pinterest developers to build their own web browser.

  • New app drawer

  • This now scrolls vertically instead of horizontally and is set against a white background as opposed to a muted shade of your homepage wallpaper. Additionally, across the top of the menu you will see your four most recently used apps.

  • Mobile payments

  • This is Google’s response to Apple Pay. Android Pay is designed to make the checkout process easier and faster and it is compatible with any device featuring NFC capabilities (and running 4.4 KitKat or above).

    That's all for Now expect More!!!!!
