Android Marshmallow is the latest version of the Android that was launched by Google in the month of August and Nexus 5, Nexus 6 and Nexus 9 are the first three devices to get the developer preview of this version. Later Google has launched two new smartphones, i.e., the LG Nexus 5X and the Huawei Nexus 6P which were the first device to come with Android 6.0 out of the box. If you are using any of the Nexus devices and running out of space due to the bunch of applications installed on your device, then removing the unwanted applications will help you in enhancing the storage on your device. Android marshmallow is designed in such a way that it comes with a lot of hidden features and uninstalling an application from the home screen is one of those.
