M is for Marshmallow (and Android 6.0)!

Android Marshmallow StatueToday Google has unveiled its latest statue on the Google headquarters campus along with the name of the next iteration of Android.  Several days ago Google teased us with a video asking what Android M would stand for and today they made it official, M is for Marshmallow.  The statue is pretty basic, it is the Android mascot holding a gigantic marshmallow.

As part of the announcement Google has also released their final Marshmallow developer preview as wells as the latest Android SDK.  The release of the SDK brought with it another tidbit, with Marshmallow Android will be graduating from version 5.x.x to 6.0 (API 23).  You can get the SDK and the developer preview builds at Google’s Android Developer Downloads page.

Google has also released a Behind The Scenes video of what goes into the naming of each version of Android as well as what goes into the building of their Android statues.  Check it out below!
