Existing Google Nexus 5, Nexus 6, Nexus 7 and 9 users eagerly awaiting information for the Android M rollout for the devices are in for a real treat.
According to a report on Android Police, the newest OS – Android Marshmallow, from the stables of Google — will be made available on October 5.
As Android users may be aware, OTA update of the software may take its own time. However, manually downloading the software by locating the ZIP will be quicker, as shared by the site. The final Marshmallow code for AOSP will also be out on the same day as the release of the final version of the software.
As noted by Android Pit, fans have been enjoying the developer preview, which was released in May and was followed by three upgrades before the final version on Android M, to be announced today at an event by Google.
