Android Marshmallow on just 0.3% of compatible phones

It is rumored that the Android Marshmallow update will rollout for Samsung Galaxy Note 4, Note 5, S6 Edge, and S6 by December. The connecting of Google Nexus 7 device to your computer via a USB cable and copying the zip files from your computer to your mobile device would let you enjoy this wonderful update and its wondrous features.

HTC One M8: There hasn't been an official word from HTC, but many Play Edition owners are sharing that Marshmallow has come to their phones.

Dashboard update: Marshmallow has made its debut in Google's monthly report of the Android distribution numbers.

There wasn't a ton of movement with the other versions of Android: Lollipop is still on about one-fourth of all devices. Google is known to have launched a number of devices such as Nexus Q, Chromebook Pixel, Chromecast and the upcoming Pixel C.
