This update includes changes including the following:

|Quick Settings||You can quickly select different Wi-Fi access points or different paired Bluetooth devices with a new pull-down menu on each tile. Conditional settings tiles that only show if you use the feature - like “Invert Colors” or “Hotspot” - can now be hidden via a long-press on the tile.|
|Performance||Improvements in the Android Runtime (ART) lead to faster application launch times.|
|Lockscreen||If you have enabled Ambient Display, the minimum swipe distance has increased to reduce accidental interactions.|
|Android Security||Includes the updates of Android security patches until 1st March 2016.|
