Along with the announcement, the Android creator also released the final M Developer Preview (MPA44G) for the Nexus 5, Nexus 6, and Nexus 9. The images are up, but there will also be over-the-air (OTA) updates for those not interested in flashing images.

On the official Google Android developer's blog, the company announced, "We're introducing the official Android 6.0 SDK and opening Google Play for publishing your apps that target the new API level 23 in Android Marshmallow."

How to Get the Update

Reportedly, developers are encouraged to test the new permission model for app updates and installs, and official support for fingerprint sensors and a power saving mode are also available.

The final APIs are incremental; there's nothing significantly different from the last preview build, says Google. Developers can also take advantage of Google's new beta testing program for Marshmallow-ready apps published to Google Play.

Here are the download links for each device.
