Improved App Linking

Forever annoyed by "Open with" pop-up boxes whenever you tap on a link in Android? Vastly improved app linking in Marshmallow means that Android should be able to figure out whether a link should be opened in a Web browser or an app by itself. This should translate to fewer pop-up boxes and a smoother overall experience on Marshmallow.

The next major version of Android 6.0, Marshmallow, is expected to be announced this week, with the first smartphones that come preinstalled with it to be available shortly after.

While Google has announced that Marshmallow is an incremental update that focuses largely on bug features, it does offer some new capabilities and a number of tweaks that users will look forward to. We've listed 10 of the most compelling features in the following slideshow.
