Questions:

Is there any information available on whether Samsung’s Marshmallow update will use Google’s new fingerprint API or keep to using their custom SDK or both?

I see that they have started rolling updates to beta testers, but these are not available in my country and I cannot find other information.

How to&Answers:

From samsung developer forum, someone did try the android fingerprint api with samsung galaxy s7 edge. and it works!

Answer:

The S7 supports both Android M fingerprint API and Samsung’s Pass SDK.

S5 and Note4 don’t support the Android M API, as indicated in post1 and post2..

Not sure about S6
