Motorola has began its push out of the Marshmallow software update to its Moto G 2014 in India. This comes weeks following the company's launch of a beta test of the Android 6.0 in India and Brazil. Prior to this update, the smartphone had received an Android 5.0 Lollipop fimware update in January 2015. This means Motorola chose to forgo the Android 5.1.1 Lollipop update and instead jump straight to a Marshmallow upgrade.
The Android 6.0 update will be available over-the-air (OTA) and will bring the current software version of the device up to v24.41.34. Weighing in at 464.2 MB, owners are advised to create the necessary storage space before proceeding with the download. Aditionally, both the LTE and 3G enabled Moto G device variants will receive the update. The update brings a handful of features such as the Doze mode, a capacity to expand internal storage via an SD card, Google Now on Tap and more.
Motorola has already released the Marshmallow update to its Moto G (3rd
gen), Moto X Play, Moto X Style and Moto G Turbo Edition. Most of the company's handsets have already been confirmed to soon see the update hit them but others like the first Moto E and Moto G editions are barred from receiving the update, especially considering the company halted their production.
