Moto G (2nd Gen) Marshmallow Update Commences in India, Brazil Is Next
Although the Moto G 2015 3rd gen took over the market last year, the Moto G (2014) still remains a coveted budget phone. The device was recently soak tested in Brazil and India for the latest Android 6.0 Marshmallow software, but the update is now rolling out only in India.Advertisement
The update is available to 3G and LTE-enabled 2nd generation Moto G variants in India. Right now, there is no news when the roll out will start in Brazil, but it is expected anytime soon. It should be noted that the Moto G 2014 is already listed on India’s support website by Motorola, reports GSM Arena.
The update invites a lot of advanced features for your phone such as Google Now on Tap, Doze and redesigned app permissions. The ability for the Moto G (2014) to adopt SD cards for expanding internal storage is a welcoming feature too. Apart from these, the update is able to remove Motorola Alert, Motorola Migrate and improve Motorola Assist. Users can receive the update via over-the-air (OTA), which can be verified by going to Settings, and checking for the update signal, reports Android Police.
A long trail of discussion followed on Google+ community page where many fans confirmed about the OTA update after the soak test. One notable point made during the discussion is that users should make sure that their phone’s battery is fully charged before upgrading the phone to the latest software.
