The Android Marshmallow update will increment the Android version on the Era 4G from 5.1.1 to 6.0. Marshmallow brings in the battery saving feature Doze, which will automatically hibernate apps in the background and it will put the device in a deep sleep state when the phone is idle to prevent battery drain. Also included are the ability to control app permissions and Google Now On Tap.
As shown in the screenshot above, with the help of app permissions, you can either grant or deny WhatsApp the access to camera, GPS, contacts, SMS, microphone and storage.
With the help of Google Now On Tap, you can summon Google on any screen just by long pressing the home button. Google will then automatically scan the screen contents and will deliver rich cards which may either contain more information about the screen contents or may be used to open apps and to carry out other actions.
The update will also bring in various UI changes, bug fixes and performance improvements.
