Motorola has confirmed that Android 6.0 Marshmallow is ready to several of its devices although the date was not mentioned. Among the devices that will receive Android 6 they include: 2015 Moto X Pure Edition (3rd gen), 2015 Moto X Style (3rd gen), 2015 Moto X Play, the 2015 Moto G (3rd gen), 2014 Moto X Pure Edition in the US (2nd gen), 2014 Moto X in Latin America, Europe and Asia2 (2nd gen), 2014 Moto G, Moto G with 4G LTE2 (2nd gen), DROID Turbo, 2014 Moto MAXX, 2014 Moto Turbo, Nexus 6.
Your Motorola device is on the list? Otherwise, do not worry because the company is likely to add more, as it says in the company blog about to make available Android 6.0 Marshmallow for other devices that might not have to be included in the list. In the list we do not see the Moto E, Moto G or Moto X first generation, apparently because this device are very old for Android update. But a new Moto E of second generation arrived a few months ago so it could be a device that could be included in the list soon.
What Android 6.0 offers to Motorola devices? One is that the update removes Moto Assist. Instead, Android offers a Do Not Disturb option that can be found in the configuration of “sound and notifications.” This feature used to be Moto Assist. Moto Assist addition, Motorola Migrate and Google Chrome extensions in Motorola Connect are gone.
Instead of Moto Migrate that was used to transfer photos, videos, SIM contacts and message and call history, it is replaced by a new feature that provides support for user backup data. Motorola follows the lead of two other companies that have announced releases of Android in June. HTC announced that they will release the update soon while LG hinted at the possibility of updating the LG G3 and LG G4 connected to an update to the supporting documents in their Korean site.
