Before officially releasing the Android 6.0 Marshmallow for Sony Xperia Z2 and Z3, Sony launched the Xperia Beta program to enable users to give their feedback to the company for any bugs and glitches. Once the pre-release version of the Marshmallow software is assessed and confirmed, it will release to the public en masse.
While the Masrhmallow update for Sony Xperia Z2 and Z3 are imminent, the beta program will help new Android 6.0 Marshmallow software developers to have an open communication with users who will sign up for the program. The program is designed to enable users to evaluate the software beforehand and report their feedback to developers so that Sony can iron out any glitches to improve the firmware. The initiative will help the Japanese company ready the Marshmallow software without any pitfalls to the public.
Sony took to Google+ for describing the Xperia beta program and the concept for Android. The new release is expected soon within the next couple of weeks once the software passes the Beta test, notes Xperia Blog.
As for signing details, users can sign up for the Beta test program via the Xperia Program app. But before that, visit the Google Play Store where you can find the app, which you will have to download on your device, reports Uberzigmo.
For Marshmallow fans, the software brings the most-coveted Doze power saving feature. Usually, a phone tends to lose great battery power when it’s idle, but this is not so with Doze. It is an intelligent battery management feature that saves power when your phone stays idle overnight.
Google Now on Tap is perhaps one of the biggest features of the Android Marshmallow that basically functions by creating shortcuts needed for long searches. To be more precise, the feature offers context and time-sensitive notifications. Activate the Google Now on Tap button by long pressing the home button, states Android Pit.
