Android Pay not working on Android Marshmallow preview

Android Pay will not work on Preview versions of Marshmallow for now, but it does work on other smartphone devices, new reports show. The APK is available for public use at the moment, but you should not try to use it on a flashed Android Marshmallow developer version.

You can go to the APK mirror in the source link to download the APK, but you will need the appropriate Google Play services installed for it to work. You cannot use the feature on a rooted device because it will interfere with the app verification process; you can, however, re-root your device after installing Android Pay and it will somewhat work.


This restriction was intended by Google, as it works out. An employee of Google responded on Google + that their system verification will not function on preview builds, but it will work perfectly once Marshmallow goes live. Not many other details were made public at the moment.

[I/O] Android M developer preview to allow Dark UI mode change

If Lollipop did something wrong, it was the white system theme, as many say, and it appears that Android M is going to change that and offer people more options to choose from. The preview M edition will offer users the option of enabling the new material dark system mode.


Android M theme


This new theme option has selections for light, which are the default, dark and automatic. When you turn on the dark mode, the setting screens will turn to material dark. The automatic mode may be the one that switches to white or dark depending on time.


This is all a preview feature, which means that the dark theme option may be in development or it may not even pass to go live in the final release. If you have a Nexus 5, 6, 9 or Nexus Player feel free to download and flash the preview.
