Guessing game is over, the next gen of Google mobile OS is called Android Marshmallow

About time the search giant Google revealed the final consumer name for its next generation of mobile operating system. Google has finally given the name Marshmallow to its new operating system for smartphones. The company revealed the name on its developer’s blog along with the final SDK version of the operating system.

Jamal Eason, Product Manager, Android said “Today with the final Developer Preview update, we’re introducing the official Android 6.0 SDK and opening Google Play for publishing your apps that target the new API level 23 in Android Marshmallow,”

There will be some new features added to the operating system that will enable the smartphone makers to easily incorporate things such as fingerprint scanner or an upgraded doze power saving mode.

Jamal also added “Classes for detecting and parsing bar codes are available in the com.google.android.gms.vision.barcode namespace. The BarcodeDetector class is the main workhorse — processing Frame objects to return a SparseArray<Barcode> types.”

We for one are looking forward to the Marshmallow upgrade. Reports do suggest that the phones from Motorola’s camp and Nexus series will be the first to get the upgrade followed by the rest in the coming months.
