We knew it was coming, but we didn't know what the 'M' in Android 6.0/Android M stood for. Well, now we do: Marshmallow. Before the announcement, there were rumors that the 'M' stood for macadamia, but marshmallow is definitely more appropriate, especially when considering the previous nicknames for Android releases.

Google has officially confirmed the delicious new iteration of Android as Marshmallow with a new Android mascot holding a bigger-than-life marshmallow at its Mountain View-based HQ. Every release of Android since the original Alpha and Beta versions have sounded just as delicious, with Cupcake, Donut, Éclair, Froyo, Gingerbread, Honeycomb, Ice Cream Sandwich, Jelly Bean, KitKat, Lollipop and now, Marshmallow.

The search giant has said that while the Android 6.0 SDK is final, the system images that are available for the Nexus 5, Nexus 6, Nexus 9 and Nexus Player are developer preview versions, and are not intended for consumer use. As always, use at your own caution.
