Bigger and moving icons. How is that better? And I see app drawer there

I wish Google this time give option to enable/disable app drawer..

Both Samsung and LG gave options to enable/disable app drawer
So I'd be surprised if Google didn't

Just download another launcher from the Play Store.

Just curious, why would you want to? If we could hide icons, it would be fine, but I don't need icons on my home screens for stuff I use once a month.

Google already explicitly stated that video didn't reflect official UI changes they made an android n.

If this is a problem, don't update it. Marshmallow is great. Lollipop is a pos. Kk4.4.4 was the best.

This is a render: according to the original source the screenshot couldn't be shared, so this is a render based on what the source saw.

What I meant to say is that the app drawer may or may not have been added into the render.

Another thing Google's stealing from Touchwiz. For getting so much s**t from PA users - touchwiz sure is showing the way forward for Android. Vanilla android sucks.

Vanilla android and Touchwiz both has their own pros and cons, get over it.

What's pros and cons gotta do with stealing ?

In case you didn't fully read his comment, he said "vanilla android sucks", and I was responding to that specific part of his comment. Need further expalanation?

The new contents with additional info is looking good but they should have been embedded with in the Card UI.
15. vincelongman (Posts: 4431; Member since: 10 Feb 2013)
Its still the Card UI
But its merged cards in the first screenshot (see second screenshot for unmerged)
I hope it has this merging animation

Also IMO they should keep the icons on the left and full size

As mentioned by original source (sth PA didnt include), this is merely a render of what source saw in screenshot, which couldn't be uploaded, so this is just a render.

So many devices don't even have the supposed "going to be on every device" Marshmallow yet, and we're already looking at Android N? They need to perhaps seed this to the manufactures BEFORE phones launch, rather than claim they will update existing devices with it.
23. Awalker (Posts: 1501; Member since: 15 Aug 2013)
This is only for devices Google manufactures. With any other device you're on your own.

I'm in love with Marshmallow (completely stock, I must stress) on my Nexus 5... Way better than The Kitkat which looks like it got is aspiration from Nightmare itself, or perhaps The Pegasus...
And seems like Google isn't stopping there!
Just stick with The App Drawer... Or at least make it an option which may be enabled/disabled...
Or come up with something out of the box like Windows Tiles...

They should also use the iPhone style like with notification to reply to a message in any social media without entering the app to do that just swipe it down when a notification shows the keyboard appears you type the message n send it

wow another OS already? most ppl are still on JB and KK and just starting to get LP.....either speed up the phone OEM or google needs to slow down with new OS rollouts

Android really takes its time rolling out the simplest features. Why not just let developers offer replacement notification shades? No, that would make hardcore consumer sense but it would end Android's drug dealer-esque habit of giving you casual-user progress in drips and drabs. In a way, that slow roll-out of new features such as these is necessary so as not to dissuade pedestrian followers with radical changes season to season. However, I would like to see what outside developers would do with that notification shade in more fundamental options. Too bad Android will not relent on notification shade apps until the point where early adapters will have moved on and lost their appetite for it all. (But I realize I could be wrong.)

I'd prefer the notification cards to be separated
