The Marshmallow Android OS update is coming tomorrow, September 17, 2018, according to a blog post from Android security firm Sade.
The post notes that the update will be distributed via an OTA update to users via the Google Play store.
There are also a few security tweaks that will go live with the update, as well as some additional software updates that will be made available through Google Play and other channels.
This new update is part of the Android 8.0 series, and it brings improvements to some of the core security features that the company introduced in the past several releases.
The Android 8 release cycle started in October 2017, and Android 8 Marshmallow introduced many of the improvements and security fixes that Google promised would be included in future updates to the operating system.
Android 8’s update system has been updated to support the security improvements, including the ability to add a custom notification to the lockscreen.
Additionally, the Android Marshmallow OS is now able to take advantage of a new feature in Android Oreo called “System Tray,” which allows users to create shortcuts to the system settings that can be launched from the system tray.
It is a new way for users to take control of their Android devices and is designed to prevent unwanted software from interfering with their device.
Sade says that the new updates will be rolled out to all Android users on September 17 and September 18, and users should start seeing the updates now.
This is the second Android 8 update that Sade has released this year, and the company is also working on the upcoming Android 9 update that will include new features and updates.
Android 9 will be released on September 24, 2019, and is expected to come with a number of new security features.
Google is also currently working on an update to the Android app platform, and that update will include a new update that includes some new improvements to the platform.
