Moto G (Gen 2) Reportedly Starts Receiving Android 6.0 Marshmallow Update

Motorola has reportedly started seeding Android 6.0 Marshmallow update to its second-grneration Moto G smartphone. It is worth mentioning that the company has already rolled out the update for its Moto G (Gen 3) smartphone.

The Motorola Moto (Gen 2) users can go in to the Settings app of the smartphone and check for the updates by going in to About Phone > System Updates. The OTA update is being reported by users via GSMArena to be available for both 3G and LTE-versions of the handset in India.

Android 6.0 Marshmallow (previously just Android M) brings features such as revamped app permissions; Google Now on Tap feature; Android Pay mobile payment system, and new fingerprint APIs for developers among others. It also features some Google's security patches as well.

While announcing the Android 6.0 Marshmallow update plans, Motorola listed Moto-specific changes that users will see after updating to the new Android OS version. Some changes to Moto enhancements include removal of Moto Assist feature as part of upgrade to Android M. The company explains that the latest OS includes an option for 'Do Not Disturb' under the 'Sound and notification' settings that performs similar function what Moto Assist does.

The company in October last year detailed its Android 6.0 Marshmallow update plans for its handsets. The company said that the Moto G (Gen 2), Moto G (Gen 2) LTE, Moto X (Gen 2), Moto X Pure Edition, Moto G (3rd Gen), Moto Maxx, Moto Turbo, Droid Turbo, Moto X Pure Edition (3rd Gen), Moto X Style, Moto X Play, and Google Nexus 6 will be receiving the Android 6.0 Marshmallow update.

It is worth noting that Motorola hasn't included the first generation Moto E, Moto X, or Moto G in the list, which further lowers the odds of these devices ever getting Android 6.0 Marshmallow software version from the now Lenovo-owned company.
