Moto X Play has started receiving the Android 6.0 Marshmallow update in several countries including Canada, Latin America, India and Europe. Most importantly, the device lineup has also started receiving the Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow update in Canada and India, as reported by Gospel Herald.
Previously, Moto X Pure Edition was upgraded to Android 6.0 Marshmallow in the United States, which was considered one of the fastest releases for Android updates. However, Moto X users in other markets still have not yet received access. Nonetheless, reports say that the firmware should seed soon, given that a version was already available in the United States. It should just be a matter of time before the firmware hits other regions.
Additionally, a chart on Motorola devices confirms the update will be available to units such as the Moto X Pure Edition, Moto X Play, the Moto X Style, and the Moto X (2014). Confirmed devices for the G series include Moto G (2015), Moto G (2014), and Moto G (2014) LTE version.
NDTV previously reported that the Moto G third generation unit has already started receiving the Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow update in India. The change log for the said update is similar to the one available for the Moto X Play OS update. The firmware upgrade should feature Google’s March security update, monthly security patch and Unicode 8.0 emoji support. Other expected features include shutter tone setting, shutter sound control and stability improvements. As with other Android updates, users are advised to check with their networks and regional units for actual release. The updates are available via OTA or manual installation.
