Android 6.0 Marshmallow is not as big as an update when compared to Android 5.0 but it definitely came with it a lot of small upgrades to existing features which surely would make it even more simple for an average Android user. Following are the compilation of a few different tips you would be needing when using your Marshmallow device, to get the most out of it.
- Uninstallation of apps has been made all the more easier as now you can uninstall any app directly from the home screen or the app drawer. Tap and hold on any app on the home screen on the app drawer you wish to uninstall. You’ll see “Remove” and “Uninstall” as two options on the top of the screen. Drag the app to the recycle bin icon and it will be done.
- You have the control over the app permissions now. Every app on your device needs a few permissions to be able to use some features n your device so that the app can perform at its best. A dialler app needs permission to use your phone book, a map app asks you to use your location and the like-wise. But there would be some apps like a photo editing app would require permission to use your location. That doesn’t make sense, does it? No. So with Marshmallow at your service, you can grant only those permissions to the app which you feel are sensible.To access app permissions, go to Settings > Apps and tap an individual app to see its permissions. Then slide on/off the bar against a specific permission according to your wish. On the other hand, if you want to know which permissions have been granted to which apps, go to Settings > Apps, then tap the overflow menu in the top right corner and head to Advanced > App Permissions.
- With Marshmallow, you now can know which app or process is that which is the reason for your device’s processing speed to slow down. Know which app takes more memory of the RAM. Go to Settings > Memory > Memory used by apps to see the list of all those apps.
Tapping on a particular app gives you more detail about the app.
- Now you can activate Google Now directly from the lock screen. The dialer app icon has been replaced by Google Now and you might have noticed it by now already. So you can now have Google Now at your command by swiping from left to right on the bottom of your screen and speak away what you wanted to get done.
