You can try your apps on this latest Android Marshmallow Developer Preview 3 that has updated APIs to the developers and code base and UI with updated behavior.

What’s new in Preview 3 of Android Marshmallow (Google):
The Developer Preview 3 update includes the up to date Marshmallow release platform code, and near-final APIs for you to validate your app. To provide more testing support, we have refined the Nexus system images and emulator system images with the Android platform updates. In addition to platform updates, the system images also include Google Play services 7.6.
