    Ok, so I'm running a Nexus 6 with stock Android 5.1.1 Verizon Build Number LMY48M. Last night I had the normal paginated app drawer where you swipe horizontally to scroll through your pages of apps. This morning on the way to work i was listening to Pandora over bluetooth, the phone then shut down (without any prompting from me). When it restarted the app drawer was no longer paginated and now scrolls vertically with all apps on one big page. From googling around this looks to be how the app drawer will be once Marshmallow is released, but I don't understand why it changed on my phone since I am still on 5.1.1. Anyone else have this happen recently?

    Others are experiencing this. It's a foretaste of Android M.

    My app drawer did the same thing just now, but on moto x pure edition 2015. I just update the Google app & that's when it happened.
    I figured I'd chime in to say it's not limited to nexus 6 apparently.

    Same thing happened to me. I don't mind, just curious why it did this.

    The change probably came with an update to the Google Search app. That app contains the code for the Google Now Launcher.

    same just happened to me, Nexus 5, Germany. Didn't restart, no update on any app. Just used the app drawer twice in a row. First time, ist was "normal", then the second time it had changed. Like it though...

    I noticed some lag earlier today, this is now gone...

    Google's launcher updated, probably along with Play Services. You can at least remove the suggested apps at the top in the Google app settings.

    I have Moto X 2 and the same happened last night. My version of 5.1.1 is LPE23.32-14.2 running from Brasil. If my device will receive Android M soon, I'll be very happy.

    It makes me feel a little sick.

    Actually had a head in hands "oh no" prompting my 2 year old to come over and say "its OK daddy, don't worry"

    Don't like it

    My app drawer changed as well. I'm on a OnePlus one with the most recent version of cyanogen android available. I love the new app drawer.. Only thing is, mine has reverted back to the old and I hate it! How do I get new back
