Last night, Google’s mobile operating division announced its latest update and calls it the Android 6.0 marshmallow (sorry, not mithai). This puts an end to our speculation of what the statue of a green droid holding the new dessert figurine meant.

This news was announced by Dave Burke, Android’s VP of Engineering via his Twitter account on Monday. Reports also suggest, that Google has released a “near-final” SDK version of the new operating system for developers.

“Whether you like them straight out of the bag, roasted to a golden brown exterior with a molten centre, or in fluff form, who doesn’t like marshmallows? We definitely like them,” wrote Jamal Eason, Product Manager, Android in the blog post.

The Android 6.0 is said to largely be aimed at delivering stability and performance improvements, and will bring new features such as – the Android Pay, Tap on Now, new app permissions model, built-in support for fingerprint scanner, as well as support for the USB Type-C standard. Reports also say, that this new version also offers native support for the 64-bit ARMv8 architecture.

The Android v6.0 will be shipped later this year while the company is also rumoured to be releasing two Nexus smartphones along with it.
