Android 6.0 Marshmallow rolling out to the Nexus 5, Nexus 6, Nexus 7 and Nexus 9 next week

Android 6.0 Marshmallow

The #Google #Nexus family saw the addition of the #Huawei #Nexus6P and the #LG #Nexus5X earlier today. Along with showing off some new hardware, the company was also mindful of existing users. Not keeping us waiting any longer, the company has now officially announced the Android 6.0 rollout for its Nexus devices.

The compatibility list is relatively small this time and sees the exit of the Nexus 4, the Nexus 10 and the Nexus 7 (2012). The compatible devices now are Nexus 5, Nexus 6, Nexus 9 as well as the Nexus 7 (2013). The company has mentioned that the update will start rolling out next week, although it could take a couple of weeks to reflect on all devices globally.

We’re guessing updates will be prioritized for devices like the Nexus 6 and the Nexus 9 given that they are the most recent devices on the list. It’s good to see that Google is wasting no time in sending out the updates to its beloved Nexus devices. We’re still wary about cellular tablets getting the update on time though, but hopefully Google will have it figured out this time.
