Whenever there is an upgrade to Android, there is always a period of waiting before users actually get a hold of it, and it is starting to become a tradition. Last year, Google made an announcement for Android 6.0 (also known as Android M or Marshmallow), but it didn't appear until the fall, first on Google's own Nexus devices. Now, it is finally beginning to appear on newer devices, like the type from Motorola. This is the latest news on Android M Version 6.0 Marshmallow Release Date on Motorola Moto X, G, E Series for US Cellular, AT&T, Sprint, Verizon, and T-Mobile.
Tech Times reports that users of Motorola's Droid Turbo 2 are reporting that they are receiving Android 6.0 on their devices. Some believe that the update could be a "soak test", and this could be as there has been no official announcement in the Motorola changelog showing otherwise.
Other than that, the news about Motorola's Android upgrades hasn't changed much in the past week. The report from Tech Radar states that the Moto X Pure Edition (2015) is currently getting the upgrade on Sprint, Verizon, as well as US Cellular. It is actually quite common with Android upgrade rollouts to have some carriers receive the upgrade before others.
It looks like Motorola is really making strides in upgrading its users with some new Android goodness. For example, there are also reports of the Moto X Style, Moto X Force, and Moto X 2014 receiving the update in various parts of the world like the UK and the Moto X 2014 in the United States. The Moto G 2015 is now receiving the update to Marshmallow depending on where you live.
Pocket Lint has a list of Motorola devices set to receive the upgrade:
- 2015 Moto G (third-gen)
- 2014 Moto X Pure Edition in the US (second-gen)
- 2014 Moto X in Latin America, Europe and Asia (second-gen)
- 2014 Moto G and Moto G with 4G LTE2 (second-gen)
- 2015 Moto X Pure Edition (third-gen)
- 2015 Moto X Style (third-gen)
- 2015 Moto X Play
Another Motorola device that wasn't originally on the list to receive the Android update is the Moto E 2nd Generation. However, the International Business Times reports that the Android M update is rolling out to users in India. The Moto E (2nd Generation) is only going to be receiving the upgrade in Europe, Latin America, Canada, and Asia.
Unfortunately, Motorola has made a recent announcement that the Droid Ultra, Maxx, and Mini will not be receiving the Android 6.0 upgrade, according to Android Central. Motorola formally apologized for the lack of upgrade, and dropped the price on previously mentioned Droid Turbo 2 and Maxx 2.
