Google is about to discuss a new slew of software and product updates that OEMS are fast catching up with. As the Google I/O conference is looming, companies like HTC are updating their devices such as HTC Desire 820, HTC One M8 and M9 to Android 6.0 Marshmallow.


HTC’s Mo Versi confirmed that the Android 6.0 Marshmallow update is finally rolling out to the company’s devices. Other variants already have access to the firmware, so for those under AT&T, it may now be a good time to check for the over-the-air update.

Specifically, Greenbot reported that HTC One M8 users can keep an eye out for the prompt. The same goes for HTC One M9 units. If there is not prompt, then users can check for the update manually. As with other Android updates, they just need to check their Phone Settings to see if the update can be downloaded already.

Good news for other HTC users: the company has also delivered the Android Marshmallow update to HTC Desire 820. The device, which is the world’s first Android with a 64-bit processor, is now in line to receive the Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow update.

According to Techno Buffalo, the update not only offers the usual Android Marshmallow treats but also HTC’s Sense 7.0 user interface. Users should expect improvements both on Android’s and HTC’s front.

Previously, it was unclear whether the HTC Desire 820 will get the Android update, because it is already considered a relatively old device, but it appears HTC wants it to be up to date as well. Some features to expect include Google Now on TAP, Dozem and better battery life. People should also have access to new app permissions, performance improvements and stability. Sense 7.0, on the other hand, brings a series of design tweaks, customize virtual buttons option and theme packs capability.
