Google had released Android 6.0 Marshmallow in October. And even though the update came with a new letter “M”, we did not find any path-breaking features in it to call it a complete new package. Well, it looks like Google hasn’t stopped working on the OS for even a day, and if some new rumors are to be believed, then Google is planning the next update already.


According to a report by AndroidGeeks, an unknown source stated that Google plans to push out the Android 6.1 Marshmallow update in June next year. This update will be carrying the new split-screen support and better app permissions. The report itself reads that the news might just be a speculation, so we suggest you to take this report with a pinch of salt.

Android 6.1 won’t be a massively different update over the Android 6.0 and will be carrying the same “M” label. The update won’t come with any other features than the aforementioned ones; at least that is what we know as of now.

Android users are pretty excite about the split-screen feature that will allow better multi-tasking in tablets and phones with larger screens.
