It’s been known for months that Google will intends to roll out a major Android update this autumn.

‘Whether you like them straight out of the bag, roasted to a golden brown exterior with a molten centre, or in fluff form, who doesn’t like marshmallows? We definitely like them!’ Jamal Eason, product manager, Android wrote in a blog post about the big reveal.

‘Since the launch of the M Developer Preview at Google I/O in May, we’ve enjoyed all of your participation and feedback.’

As well as confirming the name, Google released a third and final Marshmallow software preview that can be loaded onto developers’ Nexus phones.
