First update: Android 6.0.1

Android One devices were the first to receive the 6.0.1 update, and Nexus devices followed soon after. Information on what the update adds and fixes is still rolling in. So far, we know that it adds 200 new emojis and brings a feature to the Nexus 5, 6, 7 and 9, which already existed on the Nexus 5X and 6P: pressing the power twice in quick succession can be used to launch the camera. Whether the double press results in the camera loading or your device going to sleep remains a gamble, however.
It is now known that 6.0.1 also bring fixes for two irritating problems. The first is related to the Direct Share menu, which had a loading issue, resulting in users frequently pressing the wrong button when the app share menu got pushed mostly out of view. It remains imperfect, but the improvement is marked. 
The second fix is more significant, saving many users' from immense frustration resulting from MMS message downloads hanging. The issue was related to apps having access to the MMS database. While a reboot provided a short-term solution, the 6.0.1 updated fixes the issue for all eternity.
