10,000 Xperia Z3 and Z3 Compact owners can test drive Android Marshmallow

This way for the Marshmallow trial. Sony’s Concept for Android initiative will allow 10,000 Xperia Z3 and Xperia Z3 Compact owners to beta test Android’s new major version.

The new software is built on feedback Sony received from the initiative launched earlier this year. If you want in, you’ll have to check in with the Concept Sign-up app. It’s first come, first serve so there’s an element of urgency.

Note that the test is limited to select European countries: Sweden, Denmark, Norway, Finland, Iceland, Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania, United Kingdom, Ireland or Germany.

If you’re selected for the test, you’ll get a notification in the next few weeks. The software should start rolling out soon after that.

Sony plans to update the Z3 family (including the Tablet Compact), the Xperia Z2 and Z2 Tablet and several other devices to Android 6.0 Marshmallow.
