The latest version of Android, 6.0 Marshmallow, has been officially released by Google along with the company’s new Nexus handsets. This new version of Android brings along a ton of new features, even though the OS looks very similar to Android 5.X Lollipop. One of those features is ‘Doze‘, which essentially lets your device preserve battery while it’s not moving (ie sits on a table). Now, this features is pretty great as it is, but if you’ve rooted your Android Marshmallow-powered device, you can get an app which makes things a whole lot more interesting, read on.
The app in question is ‘Doze Settings Editor’ which lets you dig deep into Doze’s options. This app will let you tweak Doze, like the time when it activates, how much movements is it required to disable Doze, etc. The latest update brought preset profiles to the app, which will actually help you tweak these settings easily, without having to manually tweak everything. You can now add your own custom profiles to the app as well, if that’s something you want. You can read more about the app itself in the source link down below which will take you to XDA Developers forum.
Now, keep in mind that you should definitely stay away from this application if you don’t know exactly what you’re doing because you could mess up Doze and along with that the functionality of your devices. That is understandable, but it had to be said, though you’ll need root privileges in order to use the app, so it’s kind of expected that you know what you’re getting yourself into. Doze is one of many new features of Android 6.0 Marshmallow, but this feature in particular along with ‘Now On Tap’ seems to be the most popular one. Battery life has become precious in today’s smartphones and a feature like Doze can seriously improve it. The ‘Now On Tap’ is a completely different story, and if you’d like to find out more about each of these features, visit our Android 6.0 Marshmallow page where you’ll find a ton of info when it comes to the new version of Android.
