OEMs continue to work on the delivery of the Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow update to their devices. According to reports, the latest version of the Android Marshmallow series has started seeding to Moto G users.
Motorola has reportedly started seeding the Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow update to its Moto G (Gen 3) users in India. Earlier in March, Moto X users got access to the update.
According to NDTV, the change log for the Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow update for Moto G is similar to that of the Moto X Play OS update. The update should feature Google’s monthly security update, including Unicode 8.0 emoji support.
Users can choose to upgrade their handsets via over-the-air (OTA) update or manual installation. They can install the firmware manually by opening About Phone > System Updates. The software comes with a version number v24.61.55 and weighs 371.4MB. Users should connect to a reliable connection before attempting to install. As with all other Android updates, devices should also be charged fully to avoid any interruptions and problems.
According to Android Headlines, the Moto G has been released in 2015 to different markets including India. Originally, it shipped with Android 5.1.1 Lollipop before it was upgraded to Android 6.0 Marshmallow. The device comes with a 5-inch 720p (1280 x 720) display plus 1GB or 2GB of RAM, and 8GB or 16GB of internal storage (expandable up to 32GB via a microSD card).
The update is only just available in India for now. However, it should just be a matter of time before other markets will have access to it. Users should wait for the notification. As with other Android updates, the access may come early or a bit delayed depending on the region or the carrier. It is best for users to confirm with their networks and regional units. There are also custom ROMs that can be tried readily. However, it is best to know more about flashing devices as wrong installation can lead to a bricked phone.
