Its release in India last month meant the Android 6.0 Marshmallow for the Moto G (2nd gen) is also set to arrive in the United States and other parts of the world. True enough, Motorola has just released the OS update to Marshmallow. Motorola brings a number of new features and improvements to the not-so-old Moto G phone. Some changes include battery-smart features and new app permissions.
With the Android Marshmallow update, experience less battery drain, App Standby mode, more control over app permissions, set specific actions for app links, expandable storage, Do not disturb mode, more intuitive volume controls, Now on Tap, Direct Share, and native Motorola features like Moto Assist, Motorola Migrate, and Motorola Alert. If you own one, you should be receiving an over-the-air (OTA) notification on your 2nd-gen Moto G. You can always check manually by going to the Settings> About phone> System updates> and then choose “Yes, I’m in”. Next step is to click on “Install now”. Phone should reboot automatically.
It was Motorola who released the Android 6.0 Marshmallow so any variant should be eligible to receive the OS update. After the 2nd-gen Moto G, we’re hoping the next Motorola phones like the Moto G Turbo Edition, 3rd-gen Moto G, Moto X Play, and Moto X Style would receive the latest Android version soon.
