Android 6.0.1 has only just hit a range of Nexus devices in the past 24 hours, so users are still discovering a few new hidden extras packed into the update. While the chief feature of the update was touted as new emoji support, the update has also brought a double-tap power camera shortcut to the Nexus 5, 6, 7 (2013) and 9, along with tweaks to the Do Not Disturb mode.

This double tap power button camera shortcut originally appeared with the new Nexus 5X and 6P models, but now a wider number of Nexus owners can quickly launch their camera when the screen is off, which is bound to come in useful when you really quickly need to capture a picture.

Another not so new feature in Android 6.0.1 is the reintroduction of “until next alarm” feature to the OS’ Do Not Disturb notification mode. Rather than manually having to mute and unmute system sounds, this mode can be used to automatically unmute notifications once your alarm goes off in the morning. Another pretty useful addition.

    This is great, now just exactly WHEN will my just a couple months old Moto X Pure edition be receiving the Android 6.0 update????? The entire Android OS update situation is just an exercise in laughability and frustration. Maybe only 1% of Android users ever update their phones to the latest OS. More likely it’s because only 1% of Android users at any one moment even CAN update their phones to the latest OS. All this said, I can understand some of why this situation exists. Manufacturers modify Android for each and every phone model they sell, as well as put bloatware that is different for EVERY model they sell on top of that modified version of Android, so to be able to upgrade ANY model phone they have to take months to modify the base version of the new OS as well as modify the bloatware.

    • Be glad that you’ve got a Moto device. Things could’ve been worse.

        Just buy a nexus device next time……
        Google=nexus..bye bye competition!

      Android is open. Don’t ever compare Google Android found on Nexuses to OEM skinned ones. They’re like different distributions in Linux world.

      My prayers were answered, I stuck a Verizon SIM card into the MotoX Pure this morning and now it is receiving the Marshmallow update from them. Whether it will operate any differently when I put my T-Mobile SIM back into it remains to be seen. We will see.

      For best results, direct your frustration to your device manufacturer. Maybe? :

    Well that would be great if doze didnt put the damn alarm to sleep. Which prevents it from going off unless plugged into a charger.

    • Like Antonio responded I am taken by
      surprise that a stay at home mom able to make $5849 in a few weeks on the
      internet. have a peek at this website on my profIle

      My wife and I each have a Nexus 5. Got 6.0.1 OTA same day ~ a week ago. We both set alarms every night and haven’t had that problem at all. Are you using stock Clock or a different alarm app?

      • Latheryin

        Yes. It is a known issue with 6.x. The easy way around it is to have your device plugged in. Google has admitted its an issue and will most likely fix it by 7.0

        • mkelton19

          Damn, this is the first I’ve heard of this. I guess I should be counting my blessings.

          Although… I don’t see why a bug like that couldn’t be resolved in a small 6.0.x update. And isn’t there a way to turn Doze off for individual apps?

          • Latheryin

            There is but it really doesnt work. The doze feature is being reworked. That is the reason it might take a while as they are also changing the volume settings again.

          • mkelton19

            I see. Where are you getting these tidbits of info from, if you don’t mind me asking? I’m obviously out of the loop.. ?

  • Bill Carson

    thank you google for fixing the clock. This was the most annoying bug ever. Got the 6.01 yesterday OTA on my nexus 5 and now network time works flawless since them.
