    My cat is named Moon Pie, so it's got my vote for the Android M name. This discussion is getting me hungry.

    Android M will probably be released to the S6 by early Q1 2016 no later. I think they may get this out a little faster than Lollipop, at least I hope.
    I'm with you. Faster updates would be a boon to Android users and those thinking of making the switch.

    The first preview builds have just been posted. Still have to wait for M to be announced with their final name by Q3 2015. Then assuming just like lollipop, all OEMS will start building upon M and adding their UI like touch wiz, a couple betas of Samsung testing, and then it'll be sent to carriers to do their testing, once thats complete, release.
    My guess, and I'm pretty confident about my guess looking back at lollipop and how there were leaks of lollipop for the S5, and all the testing being done, I can safely say the GS6 won't receive M until Q1 2016.

    Just stopped at the Moon Pie General Store in Chattanooga. Got a box of chocolate, a box of banana, a box of lemon, and a box of strawberry. Should tide us over the rest of the year until we get Android Moon Pie.

    Android N is for 2016. It has to be before then.
    Ok so maybe AT&T will put out M before the S7 comes out BUT, Remember AT&T didn't let the S5 have Lollipop Till This YEAR. I can't remember the Exact date but, I know I was one of those waiting for it. So yes N may be what is slated for 2016 but that has very little to do with release time for the carriers. That is why I gave the time line that I did.

    Why that late? It's so close to the GS7 launch assuming Samsung launches it then. The GS7 will probably ship with Android M update? 2015 EOY seems plausible, no?
    Not if we use history as our guide. For the past couple of years the timeline has rolled out like this: The new version of Android gets released into AOSP at roughly the same time the new Nexus phone is released, which is late October/Early November (the Nexus 5 and KitKat were released on October 31st, the Nexus 6 with Lollipop was announced on October 15th, with availability on October 29th). It will then take the manufacturers roughly 90 days to update their respective major flagship phones, which puts us in late January to early February.

    I vote for Milky Way and a partnership/promotion with the candy bar. With KitKat they gave away Google Play credits and Nexus phones when you bought a KitKat bar. I'll be buying lots of Milky Way bars!

    ...wouldn't that be nice.

    Unfortunately, the AT&T S5 just got Lollipop last month. So if history is any indication, branded variants of the S6 will get M around this time next year. Here's to hoping Sammy and AT&T significantly step up their update game.

    AT&T was supposed to get the update in January, there were issues and they had to push it back.

    My guess is 100% that the GS6 gets M.

    Before today everyone was banking on Marshmallow. Now a lot of people think Milky Way or Milkshake. I'm fine with any of those three. What are you hoping for?

    I have M on my N6 - will let you know in a couple days how battery is treating me.

    The preview yesterday was quite impressive. I'm also looking forward to determining each what part of my phone each app has access to.

    Could be about the devices and not M.

    It is very stable, not much in the way of bugs. That said, I haven't noticed much in the way of difference on battery life and some of the new features aren't really backwards compatible - so it's easy to intentionally break apps (through permissions for example) - but also easy to put things back to the way they were. I like it a lot so far. Also playing with a Zen Phone 2, so that's a totally new experience for me.

    No it usually doesn't on a carrier phone. Android updates usually go live OTA for Nexus devices around November-ish. OEM's get it and make their changes, then push it to carriers who do their own messing around with it and push it OTA to users somewhere around the February-April range (usually closer to the latter). So carrier phones from all brands will be getting M in the Spring of 2016. Android N or whatever it'll be called will arrive near the end of 2016, rinse and repeat.

    Is there a reason for it not to get the upgrade?

    I might as well ask here, why can't past flagships receive the upgrade. Is it...

    Incompatible? I hope this isn't the case, really a flagship that's only two years old can't get it?
    Lazy?
