Marshmallow Installed, It's Time To Test Out Android Auto
After waiting for a week for the over-the-air Android 6.0 Marshmallow update for my Google Nexus 5, I decided to install the update manually. Flashing the factory image onto my phone took a little bit of time but I was able to do it successfully.
Installing Marshmallow on your Nexus device by using the stock images provided by Google is a step-by-step process. I will write a post on how to do this if you own a Nexus 5 in the next few days but the process should be similar for the rest of the supported Nexus family too.
After installing Marshmallow, I took a quick peek around the operating system. Google Now on Tap, which is a new feature, looks like something I could get used to. It works quite well. Android Pay, the Apple Pay rival feature, is also available in Marshmallow.
But the real reason for upgrading the OS is to test out Android Auto. I am eager to see how Marshmallow plays with Android Auto. Although I am not expecting any major changes, it will be interesting to see if Google has fixed any bugs or added any new features to the interface.
I will test out Android Auto throughout the day today, and report back with some details later on. So stay tuned for that.
