9 Powerful Hidden Features In Android 6.0 Marshmallow

Android's latest sugary flavor isn't a huge change from Lollipop, but it's a welcome upgrade.
Google began rolling out updates to Android 6.0 Marshmallow a month ago, but chances are you don't have it on your device yet, unless you have a Nexus or just purchased a brand-new Android phone, like the HTC One A9.
I received the upgrade for my Nexus 7 tablet. But usually the hold up with Android updates can be attributed to the messy patchwork of manufacturers and carriers making sure their particularly noxious stew of overlays and bloatware work well together.
Let us turn to the positive and take a moment to acknowledge that we have a brand spanking new chapter of Android, which we'll all have at some point (unless we get so frustrated with Android's clusterfudge of an ecosystem that we switch to iOS or Firefox OS or something).

To be honest, even if you don't have the opportunity to upgrade anytime soon, you won't be missing much. Marshmallow looks and feels almost exactly like Android 5.0 Lollipop save for a very scant layer of OS housecleaning. While there are some important changes happening behind the scenes like a new fingerprint sensor API (which will only be of use depending on your device) or a battery-saving feature called Doze, there's nothing truly revolutionary from a UX point of view.
While Marshmallow doesn't reinvent the mobile wheel in any meaningful way, it still manages to pack in some cool new features that you'll want to check out. Here are nine new features we're pretty excited about (and might make us overlook the Android ecosystem's many, many faults).
