The Android 6.0 Marshmallow update was released on Nexus devices two months ago. Google made certain that they'll get the latest version of Android operating system. After that, other companies like Motorola attempted to bring the upgraded system on their devices.
The company has confirmed that they will be giving the updates to Moto X Play, Moto X Style, Moto X (2014), Moto G (2015), Moto G (2014), Moto G (2014) LTE in Brazil and Moto X Pure Edition in Brazil and India.
According to Motorola's product manager David Schuster, Motorola devices in India and Brazil will have a chance to experience the amazing features of Android 6 Marshmallow. For its global release, the company said it is set to occur gradually in next coming weeks.
According to our previous report, it stated that the Motorola started giving away the Android M update in the Moto X Style and Moto X (2014). The upgrade was released via Over The Air (OTA), and there's no other way to update the device manually. In other words, Motorola subscribers have to wait for a notification to update.
As per International Business Times report, there were other handsets that set to receive the upgrade. The Droid Turbo, Moto MAXX (2014), and Moto Turbo (2014) are the lucky handsets that are officially approved by the phone manufacturer to receive the Android M upgrade. In addition to that, Droid Turbo 2 and Droid MAXX 2 will have the latest OS improvement.
There are also reports that say T-Mobile's Moto X Pure Edition users will have a chance to experience the latest Android M, according to Neurogadget. However, there is still no official confirmation from the company.
When phone manufacturers are upgrading their devices, most of the time, the newer devices will get the latest updates, and then it will trickle down to the older ones. Sometimes, the oldest devices might not get the update at all.
In the case of Motorola devices, the Moto E series will not get the Android 6 Marshmallow. The highest update it can receive is Android 5.1.1 Lollipop, which has nice visual design and low-key digital assistant.
On other hand, reviewers of Android 6 Marshmallow praised the system's functionality and security features.
Android 6.0 Marshmallow does a great job addressing Lollipop's foibles. More importantly, Google is flexing its contextual smarts with the addition of features like "Now on Tap," which gives users a better perspective on what their apps can do.
Regarding security feature, Android M is using the user's fingerprints as authentication. The setup is very simple: you just have to press the sensor until it says OK.
