Android 6.0 Marshmallow software will bring in popular features and improvements widely lauded by far, including a smarter app permissions and support for USB Type-C.

App permissions get smarter this time with a notable enhancement on the permissions. With Lollipop, Android apps will ask device owners for permission to access camera, message history, location, etc. only at the installation process. With Marshmallow, asking for permissions will be done on a case to case basis.

USB Type-C support can be used for charging most phones, tablets and laptops. The cable can also be used for transferring data between devices.

Marshmallow also brings new Chrome custom tab, smarter app permissions, redesigned app drawer with search bar on it, USB Type-C, power saving Doze Mode, more extensive Android Pay, and better "cut, copy and paste" option, among others.
