Android is undoubtedly the king in operating system space running on smartphones with an 81% market share. This is the most popular OS and people are eagerly accepting the time-to-time changes that are taking place – since the functionality of this OS always increases with a new update. And this is probably the main reason, Android 6.0 Marshmallow 2016 is now becoming part of many popular newly launched smartphones. Several companies such as Asus, Google/Nexus, HTC, Huawei, LG, Motorola, Nvidia, OnePlus, Samsung, Sony, and Xiaomi are now moving towards the Android 6.0 Marshmallow update for older devices and for newly launched smartphones.
According to the most recent Google Android distribution chart, Android 6.0 Marshmallow is swinging out to be the most widespread and broadly adopted Android update till date. The late July report uncovers that around 13.3% climb up from 10.1 percent in June, which is a praiseworthy hop and Google anticipates that adoption will grow even further in the upcoming months. While it is quite easy to say that Android Nougat will smoothly be the upcoming best thing, it will take a considerable amount of time until the update arrives for smartphones individually apart from the series of Google Nexus. So, for the time being, Android 6.0 Marshmallow is still the best and the smoothest upgrade one can get with Google’s handy Now on Tap inside integration.
