Android's share menu has always been useful and extensible, but Android M will make it even more handy with the addition of direct share.

Google rolled Chrome v42 out to the beta channel a few days ago with website notifications, but there's another interesting feature hiding in there. Sharing has been improved in a neat way—it will automatically include a screenshot when you share to a number of apps.
Android's system-level sharing menu has always been a great asset, making it easy to get content into different apps quickly. Fliktu is a new app created by the lead Android developer of Pocket that adds some more features to sharing and opening links. All you need to do is give your device a little flick.
