Android 6.0 Marshmallow

Android™ 6.0 Marshmallow brings improvement to battery life, lets you use your storage card either as removable or internal storage, and more.

Battery saving improvements

Doze mode and App standby help to preserve battery life by restricting network access when the phone is not charging and the phone or apps aren't being used for an extended period of time.

There's also battery optimization for apps which helps prolong battery standby time when you're not using the phone. For details, see Battery optimization for apps.

Screen search

Screen search is a feature of the Google® app. When you press and hold the HOME button on your phone, Screen search uses what's on your current screen to show you related information, apps, and actions.

Manage phone memory

Use Memory in Settings to monitor the average memory use and performance of HTC U Play. You can also use this setting to check which apps use the most memory.

Major change to how you use storage cards

If you have an existing storage card with media and other files, use it as removable storage so you can insert the card and access your files on any Android phone.

If you have a brand new storage card, you can use the card to expand the internal storage. See Should I use the storage card as removable or internal storage? and Setting up your storage card as internal storage.

Network settings reset

Quickly reset all network settings when HTC U Play has a hard time connecting to the mobile data or Wi‍-Fi® network or Bluetooth® device. See Resetting network settings.

Google settings

Easily manage settings for Google apps and features on HTC U Play. Tap Google in Settings and change your preferences.

Smarter app linking

Android 6.0 Marshmallow automatically opens the correct app for links that you tap in a text or email message or website. With smarter app linking, there's no more guessing which app can handle the links you tap.

In Settings, you can change the default apps to link to. For details, see Setting default apps and Setting up app links.

App permissions

To help protect your phone and privacy, Android 6.0 Marshmallow has improved the way apps are given access to certain data or features, such as contacts or the microphone. For details, see Controlling app permissions.

Night mode

HTC U Play has the Night mode setting which shifts the display colors from blue to warmer colors, helping to reduce eyestrain. For details, see Night mode.
