Google’s Android 6.0 Marshmallow update continues to be rolled out to other units apart from the Nexus line. As OEMs work persistently to catch up with updates, good news now awaits Motorola users as the firmware has reportedly started seeding to second generation Moto G and Droid Turbo 2.
Second-generation Moto G users in India and Brazil reportedly started receiving the Android 6.0 Marshmallow update last month. This time, it appears the rest of the users in the United States will finally have access to it, according to a report from GSM Arena. Users are in line to receive some Marshmallow goodies like the redesigned app permissions, Google Now on Tap and Doze. Consequently, the update will also bring the Android security patch for the month of January.
Apart from the second-generation Moto G, Droid Turbo 2 is also in for a treat as Verizon just announced the release of the update. According to a new report from Android Central, the recent soak test suggests that the update may have two parts. The second part may include pushing the Droid Turbo 2 up to software version 24.14.10 apart from the upgrade to Android 6.0 itself.
As with other Android updates, people will need to make sure they are connected to reliable internet connection before installing the firmware. It is also best to charge the phone to 100 percent to avoid problems. Some users may not be able to have early access to the said firmware because of variations in schedule. Like other Android releases, some networks and regions release late despite the announcements. It is best to check with regional units and carriers.
For those who have not received the notification yet, checking the Phone’s Settings should lead to the firmware. Follow instructions on download and install the update.
