The Marshmallow upgrade might be out and about, but it can only be found on the Nexus 5X and Nexus 6P, for the time being. Even though, it will take some time for the upgrade arrive to the rest of the devices, users can still get their hands on some of Android M’s best features. Here are 6 of them:
- App Permissions And How To Administer Them.
With Android M, you can simply grant/deny the app permissions, a useful feature that sadly cannot be found on Android Lollipop so if you own a rooted gizmo, the XPrivacy packs the same types of features and does the job right. Give it a go!
- Smart Link.
Once you experience Smart Link, you won’t be able to manage without it, this feature will open a link in the app you need. So, a tweet link for instance will open in your Twitter app. It will not ask you what app you wish to use, TapPath will act just as Smart Link, that is why you need to try it out.
- Handling The Memory Of Your Device
Android M comes with an improved Task Manager, thus, you will be able to identify the apps that are using up your RAM. You can also get this type of feature on older Android versions, go ahead to the Play Store and seek Task Manager Options, opt for TinyCore or System Monitor for instance.
- The App Drawer Is Neatly Organized
The app drawer for Android M has also suffered a transformation. You will be able to see 4 icons that show you your top used applications, while the rest will be organized from A to Z. Head on to the Play Store and choose your preferred app launcher, try BuzzLauncher for instance.
- Doze Element
With Android Marshmallow, the Doze feature will do wonders for your battery. Courtesy of the USB-C, your device will also charge in no time, of course, getting your hands on the new USB-C port is not possible for now, but there are other gimmicks you can recur to in order to enhance the device’s battery life even if you do not have Android M on your phone.
- Support For The SD Card
Marshmallow update considers SD cards as internal storage, minus the limits that are imposed when it comes to external storage options. So, this means you can install as many apps as you wan, if your gizmo is rooted, Link2SD is worth a try.
