Google’s next Android update is Marshmallow

Google has unveiled the name of its next Android OS update. This coming fall, Android M will rollout to Google Nexus devices first and then out to other OEMs. It will become Android 6.0.

As funny as it may sound naming your next OS update after sugary treats, Google takes Android very seriously.

In the last 2 years, Google has deemed its future OS name with by calling it Android L or Android M. Test versions of these are released for users to try out with an unlocked bootloader. Users on famous websites such as XDA, reddit, and others have been running Preview 3 of Android M.
