Motorola has become known for pushing updates to its Moto phones is a pretty speedy manner, and the good news is that it looks like that’ll continue with the Moto X Pure Edition.
Motorola’s David Schuster says that the Android 6.0 update is now rolling out to Moto X Pure Edition phones on AT&T, Sprint, US Cellular, and Verizon. The update brings all of the Marshmallow goodies that you’d expect, like the Doze Mode battery saver, granular app permissions, Google Now on Tap, and more. The full Moto X Pure Edition Android 6.0 changelog can be found here.
Motorola says that it’s also pushing Android 6.0 to the Moto X Style in Latin America and that it’s currently soak testing the update on the Moto X Play in Brazil and India as well as the Moto X Force in Brazil.
Rounding out the Motorola update news, the Moto E (2015) with 4G LTE has been added to Motorola’s Android 6.0 upgrade plans. When Motorola originally announced its Marshmallow plans in October, that phone was missing and a lot of folks were upset about that because the Moto E is less than one year old. Motorola now says that the Moto E will be updated to Android 6.0 in Canada, Latin America, Europe, and Asia (excluding China).
Motorola made a good decision when it decided to bring Android 6.0 to the Moto E. While it only promised “at least one software upgrade to the current Android 5.0 Lollipop operating system,” which it gave in the form of an Android 5.1 update, the Moto E is still less than one year old. If Motorola stuck to its guns and didn’t update the Moto E to Android 6.0, it could upset the folks that bought the E and turn them off of future Motorola devices. Unfortunately, the US is currently not included on the list of countries that’ll get the Moto E Android 6.0 update, so those consumers are going to remain Marshmallow-less, at least for now.
