Android 6.0.1 Announced Officially, Gets New Emoji

Android 6.0 Marshmallow is still awaited on a lot of flagship devices, but Google hasn’t been idle. The tech giant has been developing the OS continuously and has announced Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow officially today. Going by the .0.1 suffix, the update isn’t a major one, though it does come with new emoji and a few tweaks here and there.

The new update supports the new emoji throughout the system, and the Google keyboard that comes pre-installed on all Nexus devices also gets an update.

Apart from the emoji, two small tweaks are also part of the update. If and only if you are on a tablet, you will find that the navigation buttons have been placed differently. The Recents button is now to the extreme right, while the Back key is at the left and Home key at the middle. Also, the Do Not Disturb mode gets an “until next alarm” option again that was available in Android 5.1 Lollipop but was skipped in Android 6.0.

For those who are wondering, the security update for December has been included in Android 6.0.1 itself. Supported Nexus devices can download the update right now through factory images, while the OTA roll-out will begin soon.
