Android fans who rock Nexus devices, rejoice: Android 6.0 Marshmallow is available for download right away though you’ll have to install the OS manually for the time being.

As Droid-Life reports, the factory images for the Nexus 5, Nexus 6, Nexus 7 (2013), Nexus 9, and Player are now live (at this link) and so are the binaries (at this link).

In case you own any of the Nexus devices that support Marshmallow, you can download the appropriate software builds right away and flash them yourself, assuming you know how to do it – check Google’s flashing instructions at this link.

Google will roll out over-the-air (OTA) updates to all these devices pretty soon, however, which means you can sit tight and wait for the update notifications to hit your devices rather than installing the software yourself.
