Since the release of Android Marshmallow in October, several users of the latest smartphones from LG and HTC have been enjoying the taste of Android 6.0 on their phones. For a while now, Samsung fans have been left out of the privilege, but it seems that the wait is finally over. A fresh report has landed that say that the Samsung will roll out Marshmallow updates for Samsung S6, Edge and Note.


A leaked roadmap for Android Marshmallow update claims that the latest operating system will roll out to Samsung’s flagship devices in the next few months. In addition, the Marshmallow update is expected to boost your phone’s efficiency and make it more powerful, reports Hindustan Times.

Doze and Google Now on Tap are the two most significant features of the Android 6.0 Marshmallow update. Regarded as an intelligent battery management feature, Doze recognizes your device when it is idle and puts it on sleep mode. As a result, your phone’s battery power is saved in the process. Unlike other phones that tend to lose 15-25 percent of battery power overnight, the Doze feature helps to reduce battery power loss to 3-5 percent, thus preserving more power in your phone for later use.

Google Now on Tap helps to create shortcuts for long searches. The feature offers context and time-sensitive information, reminders and notifications. Now on Tap reads any content showing on the phone’s screen and delivers information relevant to keywords appearing on-screen, reports Android Pit.
