When it comes to updating phones to Android 6.0 Marshmallow, Motorola has this to say: “We believe your phone should look and behave like you want it to. That means our approach to software is ‘less is more’, so you can focus on the choices that are right for you. In fact, we’ve made it a priority to avoid bloatware and skins, and focus on identifying and tackling areas where we can enable more meaningful exchanges between you and your phone, such as simple voice controls and notifications that you can interact with even when your phone is asleep.”
Motorola users can expect the following features from the Android 6.0 Marshmallow update: Doze Mode, Now on Tap, Android Pay, Direct Share and Simple volume controls. There should also be changes to Moto Enhancements.
