Mobile's HTC One M9 Set To Receive Marshmallow Feb 16
Feb 15 2016 by Kate Woods
HTC is among the first smartphone manufacturers to be rolling out the Android 6.0 Marshmallow to its devices, with subscribers to Canadian telecommunications companies including Rogers, Sasktel, Videotron and Wind Mobile having received the update already. Now, here's what is currently known about Android M update on Motorola G devices.
Nevertheless, the 2014 Moto G is finally on the list of devices now receiving the new Android 6.0 Marshmallow update.
Other enhancements include audio feedback in watches that have a built-in speaker (not in the Moto 360, but in devices like the Huawei Watch and the Asus ZenWatch 2.) Also coming up in Android Wear 1.4 are support for more languages and more messaging apps.
Marshmallow for the Droid Turbo 2 isn't too dissimilar to Google's stock software on the latest Nexus smartphones.
Verizon can be very slow with delivering Android updates, and the carrier did not break its tradition with the Motorola DROID Turbo 2, a handset that still runs Android 5.1 Lollipop at the moment. Because most of the major manufacturers have already started rolling out the update, the latest being the Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 Edge Marshmallow update.
Users should expect some Moto-specific changes after they install the latest Android OS version. There's no official changelog available quite yet, but One M9 owners can look forward to some of Android 6.0's goodies like improved app permissions and battery improvements thanks to Doze. Some of the improvements are "Do Not Disturb" option under the "Sound and notification" and removal of Moto Assist feature. The app also features the ability to directly add new reminders. However, it had been available only via over-the-air downloads and only on a Wi-Fi connected network, mainly due to the size of the download.
