Enable Home screen rotation on Android Marshmallow

Google allows Android phone users to have the device home screen rotated to landscape. This feature is available for Android Marshmallow devices. To enable rotation of home screen,

  1. Go to Settings -> Google -> Search & Now.
  2. Under Home screen, enable 'Allow rotation'.
Of course, you need to have the 'Auto-rotate' enabled for this to work. To enable Auto-rotation, swipe down from the top part of the screen to reveal Quick Settings and click the icon named 'Portrait'. If you have already enabled rotation, the icon will be named 'Auto-rotate' and you need not do anything here.
