A quick look at Android 6.0 Marshmallow’s fancy new boot animation

Because you can never have too much Material, Android 6.0 Marshmallow brings, not only a host of new software features, but brand new #materialyolo boot animation as well. We know it’s not the biggest new update, but given that the vast majority of Android users are using non-Nexus hardware (those built by Samsung, LG, HTC, or Motorola), we know that many of you will never see this. To give you a quick look at what you’re missing, we decided to post.

It’s nothing too wild, just a replacement for the colorful spinning balls we saw introduced in Lollipop. The new material animations are definitely a nice touch but we only hope that for current Nexus users, most of Lollipop’s bugs have been squashed. As much as we like Marshmallow’s new boot animation, we don’t want to see it too often. Ha.

I've been obsessed with consumer technology for about as long as I can remember, be it video games, photography, or mobile devices. If you can plug it in, I have to own it. Preparing for the day when Android finally becomes self-aware and I get to welcome our new robot overlords.
