Not too long ago, Google said that it would be sending out the official release of Android 6.0 Marshmallow to supported devices. Right on schedule, the newest version of Android is now making its way out to Nexus-branded devices, which should make plenty of owners happy.
Google has announced that Android 6.0 is now rolling out to the Nexus 5, Nexus 6, Nexus 7 (2013), the Nexus 9, and, finally, the Nexus Player. As is par for the course with these types of over-the-air (OTA) updates, the software will be rolling out in availability, so if your Nexus device doesn’t receive the update right away, just keep an eye out for it. It should show up soon.
On top of that, Google has also released the factory images for the Nexus 5, Nexus 6, Nexus 7 (2013), the Nexus 9, and the Nexus Player. It’s worth noting that devices that offer a Wi-Fi-only and cellular option are both getting updated, and both have factory images available to download. That means both the cellular-equipped Nexus 7 (2013) and its Wi-Fi-only sibling both have factory images available right out of the gate.
Of course, it’s worth noting that installing a factory image on your device will wipe it. So if you simply just can’t wait to get your hands on the newest software and want to install the factory image, keep in mind you’ll need to wipe it.
There are instructions on how to install the factory images in this link, though, if that’s something you’d like to do this time around.
Are you looking forward to the Android 6.0 update?
