Motorola has revealed its Android 6.0 Marshmallow roll out plans. According to Motorola’s Dave Schuster, an Android Marshmallow soak test is currently in its development stages for the Moto G (2nd Gen) in the Brazil and India territories. This Marshmallow soak test is set to roll out to these two regions before the official update is released to a wider user base, which is expected to happen before the month ends. The Marshmallow sosk test will apply to 3G and 4G LTE editions of the Moto G handset.

Along with the soak test, Motorola has posted an update to its support page informing users on all they may need to know about the latest software. It mentions the added app permissions integrated to the Marshmallow software, new Do not Disturb functionalities, as well as Motorola’s very own Assist and Alert features, and many more. The information may come in handy as users download the software update.

Presently, Motorola has already released the Android 6.0 Marshmallow update to a list of its latest models, such as the Moto G Turbo Edition and Moto X Play, both in Brazil and India. So we are already aware of what is to be expected from the update.
