Motorola announced that it is finally rolling out the new Android 6.0 Marshmallow to the second generation Moto E.
Back in October, Motorola revealed a list of devices that are getting the latest Android OS. However, a number of users must have been disappointed after learning that the second generation Moto E wouldn’t be getting the update, since it wasn’t included in the list.
Motorola published the list of devices that are set to get Android 6.0 Marshmallow on Oct. 2, 2015. It was highly expected that the Moto E will be one among those devices to get upgraded since the company had promised to keep it up to date with the latest software.
It was then speculated that Motorola published an incorrect list and failed to include the 2015 Moto E model by mistake.
With the second generation Moto E now on the list, it means that it is indeed getting the Android OS upgrade. It is therefore safe to assume that it will be one of those devices to receive some exciting changes that Motorola is rolling out with Marshmallow.
“We think Android is one of the best phone ingredients out there, and there are some sweet enhancements with Marshmallow that we’re excited about,” Motorola previously said in a blog post.
Some of the new features Motorola will be launching include the Doze Mode, Google Now on Tap, Android Pay, Direct Share and Simpler Volume Controls.
The company is also enhancing its support in terms of backing up user data through Android M. Likewise, the company plans to discontinue other features such as Motorola Migrate and the Google Chrome extension in Motorola Connect.
“The world has moved on and they no longer add enough value to justify taking up space in your device,” added Motorola.
Here is the updated list of devices that are getting the latest Android 6.0 Marshmallow.
1. 2015 third generation Moto X Pure Edition
