Android 6.0 Marshmallow made its debut on the Nexus 5X and Nexus 6P, the first time we've seen two smartphones launched alongside each other in the Nexus programme. 

Marshmallow has also made its way to other Nexus devices, including the Nexus 6, Nexus Player, Nexus 9, Nexus 5 and the Nexus 7(s). It will soon be rolling out, skinned, to other devices too.

If you're feeling a little lost, or want to unlock Marshmallow's secrets, then we're lining up a full Android 6.0 Marshmallow guide so you can find all those sweet features.

It's worth remembering that manufacturers will have their own take on Marshmallow. Some features might be reserved as they are here, and some will not.

Android 6.0 general tips and tricks

Enable developer settings: To turn on the developer settings, head into Settings > About phone. Scroll to the bottom and tap on the Build number. After a number of taps, you'll unlock the developer options.

Unlock System Tuner UI: This is a clever hidden setting that offers a range of options you can't otherwise get to. You have to first enable the developer settings (as above). Then you swipe down the Quick Settings and press and hold the settings cog at the top next to the battery. After a long press, the System Tuner UI will be unlocked, and a new option will appear in the settings menu.

Show the battery percentage: Once you've unlocked the System Tuner UI (as above), you have the option to show the battery percentage in the battery icon at all times. (Most third-party skins have this as a default option.)

Turn on ambient display: A feature of Android Wear and Motorola devices, it's now on Android 6.0. Head into Settings > Display and you'll be able to glance at monochrome notifcations.

Quick launch the camera: (Nexus 5X and Nexus 6P only) Head into Settings > Display and there's the option to quick launch the camera with a double press of the standby button. It's much faster than unlocking your phone and hitting the icon.

Play Flappy Android: Marshmallow's Easter Egg is an Android take on Flappy Bird, as it was in Lollipop. Head into Settings > About phone/tablet > Android version. Then tap the Android version repeatedly until it changes to the Marshmallow screen. Once you have the full Marshmallow wording visible, press and hold. You'll flip into the Flappy Android game. Enjoy!

Search settings: Rather than rooting through everything, you can search the settings. Just open up the Settings menu and hit the magnifying glass and type what you're looking for.

Use Now on Tap: Just press and hold the home button. If you're looking for theb settings, go into Google Now > Settings > Now cards and you can enable or disable Now on Tap.

Use Flex Storage: If you have Marshmallow and a microSD card slot, you can turn that external storage into integrated internal storage. Head to Setting > Storage & USB. At the bottom you'll see the SD card details, with the option to format and use as internal storage. You then get to manage and move content to this partition once done.

Use the native file explorer: There's now a file explorer in Android. Head to Settings > Storage & USB and scroll to the bottom of the list. Tap Explore and you can view folders, open files, delete and share.

Turn off backgrounds in Calendar: Don't like the seasonal backdrop in your new calendar? Head into Settings and tap the slider to turn it off.

Change the default app: Android lets you decide which is the default app, if you have more than one that will do the same thing. Under Apps, select the app, and hit "open by default". Here you can clear defaults so you can change to another app for those tasks.

Control app permissions: Marshmallow lets you manage all the permissions for each app on an individual basis. Go to Apps and select the app and hit Permissions. This will let you toggle permissions on and off, so you can disable location access, for example.
