Google has officially announced the Android 6.0 Marshmallow a few days back but we have to wait a while till the final build gets to the market. Google ended a long running guessing game by naming its next Android version as Marshmallow. Android 6.0 is supposed to come with a lot of bug fixes and lot of changes to Android ecosystem. Native fingerprint support, USB type-C support, doze mode, granular notifications are some of them.
Android 6.0 Marshmallow is expected to release in the next couple of months along with the rumored Nexus 5 2015 models. Meanwhile Google has released the 3rd and final build of Android M for some of the Nexus devices and this is supposedly the final build of Android Marshmallow. Luckily, we have some new goodies added in the final Android M preview build which are awesome. The boot animation included in the package is simply awesome and looks vibrant.
As soon as the build is up, many enthusiast Android users broke down the package to find the hidden treasure. Since it’s still a long wait until Marshmallow for most of us, let’s enjoy this awesome bootanimation. You can choose from a couple of options to install the Marshmallow bootanimation, so choose whichever you feel comfortable. xdagee of XDA has put together a simple APK file to install for those who are on CyanogenMod or any AOSP custom ROM that supports theme engine.
