Skill Level Beginner
- I'm David Gassner, and this Android 6.0 New Features for Developers. After configuring Android Studio for this course, I'll describe Android 6 Marshmallow's new permissions framework. I'll then show you how to authenticate device users with their preferred screen lock method, and I'll also describe how to directly control a device's fingerprint scanner. I'll show the latest techniques for backing up app data, including configuring your app for backup and testing backups from a physical device to Google's servers.
And I'll describe other new or improved features, including website associations and app links, handling voice interactions, and controlling data display in activity layouts with the new data binding framework. I hope this course helps you get started with Android 6.0's New Features for Developers.
