The Android 6.0 Marshmallow update specific to “Motorola Droid Turbo 2” under Verizon network has been playing hide and seek for some time now. Last week, we reported that some unsuspecting Turbo 2 users started receiving the firmware. As it turns out, it was part of the soak test.
Yesterday, David Schuster, Senior Director of Software Product Management at Motorola Mobility, made a Google+ update saying: “I’m pleased to announce we have started soak testing with the Android Marshmallow 6.0 upgrade for Droid Turbo 2 on Verizon. We will monitor for a few days and with good results, proceed to full deployment.”
However, now, Droid-life says, the Android 6.0 update for Motorola Droid Turbo 2 has started rolling out to regular users as well. This means, very soon, all Turbo 2 users will receive this update in the U.S.
Device owners should note that the firmware package comes as two-part update. The Turbo 2 users can manually check to see if there is any update available for their device by navigating to Settings -> System update -> Check for firmware update.
Technically, the Android 6.0 Marshmallow update brings in changes to app permissions, battery life enhancement via Doze, which increases the stand-by time by cutting down unused background apps when the device is inactive for a stipulated time period. In addition, this software update also comes with Google Now on Tap feature to provide contextual search results, improved settings and controls and many more.
