The Android 6.0 Marshmallow update for Motorola Droid Turbo 2 has reportedly started rolling out to a handful of devices in the U.S. However, tech portals are suspecting the roll-out to be a “soak test.”
A forum user on Android Central first uploaded a screenshot of the firmware update. The software package is being sent out in two parts. The second one reportedly upgrades the Droid Turbo 2 to Marshmallow with software version 24.14.10.
The Android 6.0 Marshmallow update brings Doze, the battery life saver, to the Turbo 2. Doze will cut down the number of apps running in the background when the handset is not actively used for a specified period of time. That will significantly improve the standby time of the battery and the overall battery life.
Apart from this, the Marshmallow package also brings changes to app permissions and a bunch of emojis. The Google Now on Tap feature will also be on board to provide search results based on the active content displayed on the screen.
The Moto X Pure Edition, on the other hand, started receiving the Android 6.0 Marshmallow update in December 2015. However, the first factory image for the handset is available for download now, GSM Arena noted.
This factory image is tied to build number “MPH24.49-18_18.” In order to download the image, Moto X device users may have to request access to a Google Drive folder as the first step. Interested readers should log in with either a Motorola or Google account to proceed with downloading the factory image.
Motorola also started rolling out the latest Android security update for the Moto X Pure Edition and hence, the security patch level should show the following date: Feb. 1, 2016.
