Android "M" was officially announced on at the Google I/O conference on May 28, 2015 and revealed to be 6.0 Marshmallow on August 17, 2015.

You can review the high-level changes at the Android website and the announcement on the official Android blog.

Of course, not all devices will get this update right away and others won't get it at all. Each manufacturer and carrier often choose to add their custom modifications which tend to delay the official release.

When will each device get Android 6.0, either officially or unofficially, if ever?

    I just realized these canonical questions mentioned "unofficially" in "When will each device get Android "M", either officially or unofficially, if ever?". Does it mean unofficial announcement, or unofficial update (e.g. custom ROM)? Recently, it seems that most of the editors (including me) only prefer official news for official update. My concern of "unofficial update" is because it can be too ambiguous. – Andrew T. Jun 2 '15 at 5:50

    @AndrewT.: that's probably a question that should be discussed at Android Enthusiasts Meta. – ale Jun 2 '15 at 11:11
  • @AndrewT. It means an unofficial update, not announcement. – Matthew Read Mar 5 '16 at 18:33
