Motorola brings Marshmallow to Moto X handsets in India and Brazil

India and Brazil have become the first two countries to receive the Android 6.0 Marshmallow release which Motorola has prepared for its Moto X Style and Moto X (Gen 2) handsets. To be exact, the upgrade for the Style offering is reaching devices in both India and Brazil, while the OTA for the older device has arrived just in Brazil.

Motorola has also said that the Moto X Pure Edition, which is nothing but the X Style’s US version, will start receiving its Android 6.0 Marshmallow update in the coming weeks. As for other current devices from the company, although they have been confirmed to receive the OTA – except for the Moto E – there’s no particular timeframe mentioned yet.

The changelog for this upcoming Android release has been disclosed by the company finally. It has taken care to include all the main features which Google’s software has brought with it this time around. These include Google Now on Tap, Doze, granular app permissions and more.
