    The beta version of Xperia Marshmallow is rolling out to Sony Xperia Z2, Z3 Compact and Z3 in Italy, Spain and Netherlands. The global rollout is also expected to begin shortly.

    Sony Mobile recently announced their version of Android Marshmallow, which is the Xperia Marshmallow. This beta operating system is designed to give a chance to a few registered customers for testing the pre-release version of Android Marshmallow.

    When this operating system was in its design phase, the South Korean tech giant was taking registrations for volunteers who wanted to test it. The beta update is available for Sony Xperia Z2, Xperia Z3 and Xperia Z3 Compact owners only, according to GSM Arena.

    The Xperia Marshmallow is a different thread of software, and it is not based entirely on the Marshmallow concept. It includes Sony's own take of the latest Android OS. The Xperia Marshmallow is just a pre-release software, which is designed purely for experimental purposes.

    The Xperia Marshmallow Beta is designed to directly communicate with Sony Mobile's developers in order to refine the Marshmallow update for all the devices in the coming months.

    According to Xperia Blog, the update will begin to roll out for those in the Xperia Beta programme who are using the Sony devices with build number 23.5.A.0.486. The beta upgrade will update the handsets to Android Marshmallow 6.0.1, which is a slightly higher version than the Android OS version, which is currently seen Sony the Xperia Z3 Plus and Sony Xperia Z5 series. Both of these devices were recently upgraded to Android Marshmallow.

    The beta update will bring with it a new Camera 2.0.0 user interface, which was initially seen in the Sony Xperia Z5 models. This means that the users will now be able to swipe between different camera modes like video and manual.

    Additionally, there will also be sliders, which will allow the users to adjust factors like brightness in real time, before they click a photo. This upgrade will also bring a search option in the app tray. Users will get a very short period of time to use the Xperia Marshmallow, but initial reports claimed that the OS is very smooth and responsive.
