The official Android developers blog, while announcing Android M in mid-August, wrote, “Remember that when Android 6.0 Marshmallow launches to the public later this fall, you’ll need to manually re-flash your device to a factory image to continue to receive consumer OTA updates for your Nexus device.” The post also mentioned, “And… At the consumer launch this fall, the Google Play store will also be updated…”

When the devices with Android M finally comes to the market, this operating system will be introduced with lighter themes. Yes, the dark themes that were tested in the Android Marshmallow preview will be skipped from the final version as they are not considered to be eye-friendly. Users who had downloaded the first preview, upon noticing that the dark themes are no more available in the second developer preview, requested the team to bring them back. One of the members from the developer team said in response to all the requests that the theme might be introduced in the future, but not with Android 6.0 Marshmallow.
