Sony has started rolling out Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow upgrade for all the smartphone and tablet variants of Sony Xperia Z2 and Xperia Z3. The Japanese tech giant has already released Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow update for its newer devices like Xperia Z5 series, Xperia Z4 Tablet and Xperia Z3+.

According to Xperia Blog, the Android 6.0.1 OTA update with build number 23.5.A.0.570 is now available for Sony Xperia Z2 series that includes Xperia Z2 (D6502) and Xperia Z2 Tablet (SGP511, SGP512, SGP521). The Sony Xperia Z3 series that includes Xperia Z3 (D6646 and D6653), Xperia Z3 Dual (D6633) and Xperia Z3 Compact (D5833) is also receiving the Android 6.0.1 software update. The size of the update is 900 MB.

Earlier this month, Sony had released Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow update only to D6603 model of Xperia Z3, D5803 model of Xperia Z3 Compact and D5603 model of Xperia Z2. It had released software update with the same build number of 23.5. A.0.570. The update also included the security patch for the February month.

Sony has now released Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow update to almost all the variants of Xperia Z2 and Xperia Z3. However, it is yet to release Android Marshmallow update to Sony Xperia Z3 Tablet Compact.

In October last year, Sony had launched the Xperia Beta Program exclusively for Xperia Z3 and Xperia Z3 Compact owners. It allowed users to try the beta version of Android M before they received the final build. This year, Sony also allowed Xperia Z2 owners to join the beta program as it received overwhelming response from its testers.

In March, Sony released Android 6.0.1 update with build number 32.1.A.1.163 to last year’s flagship smartphones namely, Xperia Z5, Xperia Z5 Premium and Xperia Z5 Compact. The update was also made available to Xperia Z3+ (model numbers E6553 and E6533) and Xperia Z4 Tablet (model numbers SPG712 and SGP771).
