You may remember that we published a story talking about Google’s YouTube video that explored the possibilities of the name for Android M. There were a number of contenders, but at the end of the day there could only be one and that one was the long-rumoured name ‘Marshmallow’.

Google confirmed this today with the unveiling of a new Android lawn sculpture outside its Mountain View headquarters, depicting the Android mascot holding a rather large marshmallow.

This comes after Dave Burke, Google’s vice president of engineering, was seen to have a milkshake on his smartwatch at the preview of Android M at Google I/O 15.

We suspect that Android Marshmallow will make its debut on the next Nexus device, currently that is said to include two new handsets, one made by LG and another from Huawei, these will replace the current Nexus 5 and Nexus 6 devices.

Google also released an updated SDK for Android 6.0 today, allowing developers on Android to update their apps ready for the official public roll-out of Android Marshmallow.

As of yet Google has not confirmed a specific date as to when we will see this public release date.
