Google’s Android 6.0 Marshmallow update continues to roll out several OEMs and devices. According to new reports, the firmware is now seeding to units like the HTC One M9, Moto Droid Turbo 2 and Moto G second generation.
Several carriers have been working on bringing the Android 6.0 Marshmallow update to several devices. This time, according to 9to5Google, Verizon is bringing the firmware to its HTC One M9 and Moto Droid Turbo 2 units. This signals the wave of carrier updates that Android users will be seeing in the next couple of periods. While Marshmallow is already seeding to AT&T and T-Mobile variants in the previous week, word is that Verizon and T-Mobile HTC One M9 are also in line. HTC’s Mo Versi confirms the release via a post on Twitter:
Happy Friday! Good news for T-Mobile HTC One (M9) owners! We've received technical approval on Marshmallow, with the OTA to start on 2/16.

Unlocked versions of the One M8 and M9 received the update last December while carrier editions of HTC One M8 also started having access to the fimware. Now, Verizon’s Droid Turbo 2 offering or Moto X in the international market has also started seeding the Android update. Users are advised to ensure that their devices are fully charged and connected to Wi-Fi or cellular connection before updating.
More importantly, another report from 9to5Google suggests that Moto G 2nd-Gen devices can now be updated to Android 6.0 via an OTA release. The rollout is in batches so users will need to wait for notifications on their device. Some should receive it earlier while others a little delayed. Moto G users will need to give the latest stock Lollipop 5.0.2 ROM to have access to the Android 6.0 update. For those who flashed their devices via a different ROM, they will have to restore the device.
However, users already running their devices with Stock 6.0 Soak Build (MPB24.65-24/34) should not worry as the build is almost similar to the final release edition.
