HTC is continuing its latest Android Marshmallow releases for the month, with the HTC One M8 Eye in India and the global version of HTC Desire Eye, being the latest to join the list of devices receiving the updates.The Marshmallow update is currently being rolled out to the users of the HTC One M8 in India and a few countries in Europe. The update will bump up the device's software to Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow, which comes complete with a bunch of new emojis. In addition, the update will upgrade Sense to version 7.0 and also incorporates February's Android security patch. Users will need to install two updates, the first one with a smaller 120MB update with the main 1.0GB update following up. This means the download process might take a while, so a Wi-Fi connection and at least 80% of battery charge is necessary.HTC Desire Eye owners in regions such as Taiwan, UAE and a couple of European countries have cited an almost similar Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow update complemented with Sense 7.0 rolling out. The update is also landing in two different parts, with a combined weight of a hefty 1.6GB. In addition to this global update roll-out to the unlocked handsets, AT&T is also expected to roll out the same update to its Desire Eye later this month.As you already know, Android Marshmallow features a number of new functions including Doze, configurable app permissions, and a lot more. On the hand, HTC's Sense 7.0 upgrade will bring a few improvements to the former 6.0 version, such as customization for navigation controls, a ton of options and themes to personalize your device, and newly introduced Blinkfeed settings.If you are yet to spot the update notification, head into your Settings >> About >> Software updates to manually check.
