Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow hits Nexus devices

Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow update brings new emojis
Android 6.0.1 new emojis
Next to the new emojis, this Android update also brings various security patches and performance tweaks, counting as December's security update.

Strange enough, Nexus devices were not the first ones to receive Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow. However, the Android One handsets that were the first ones to get Android 6.0.1 are still devices very close to Google's inner circle. Now, the time has come for the Nexus slates and handsets to get this update as well.

There also seems to be a reason for Google to deliver Android 6.0.1 to other devices before the Nexus family - Cherry Mobile Android G1 did not get the new emojis, apparently. As part of the Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow update for Nexus devices, Google delivered a very rich set of new emojis, as well as various security patches and performance tweaks. For now, the official sources only mentioned the emojis, but since this update counts as the security update for December as well, there has to be something more to it.

The update is already available for the Nexus 5, Nexus 5X, Nexus 6, Nexus 6P, Nexus Player, Nexus 7 (2013), and Nexus 9

Although I have been writing about new software and hardware for almost a decade, I consider myself to be old school. I always enjoy listening to music on CD or tape instead of digital files and I will not even get into the touchscreen vs physical keys debate. However, I also enjoy new technology, as I now have the chance to take a look at the future every day. I joined the Notebookcheck crew back in 2013 and I have no plans to leave the ship anytime soon.
