One more Android Marshmallow update is today being pushed out to selection of Motorola handsets. Owners of the Moto G (3rd Gen) in India are the lucky Android users to get an upgrade to Android Marshmallow, this time being the 6.0.1 version. This new update looks particularly similar to the over the air update that only a week ago rolled out to the Moto X Play device in the same region. The Android 6.0.1 update will feature a v.24.61.55 version number and will weigh a non-substantial 371.4MB, meaning it will not really bring a lot of new features or enhancements. Nevertheless, ensure that you are connected to Wi-Fi before you can begin the update process, to avoid draining all your data. Earlier in the year, Motorola rolled an update to the Android 6.0 Marshmallow in India as well as other regions. But at least now users will access the new set of Unicode 8.0 emojis along with the latest Android 6.0.1's shutter sound integrated into the camera app. According to Motorola's change log, this latest update will bring with it an array of stability improvements along with the Android security update for March complemented within the download as well. The update which is expected to roll out in phases will be distributed across regions in India, so keep an eye out for the OTA update notification which should shortly hit your device. If you are concerned about being left out, you can always go to your Settings >> About Phone >> System Update, to check for it manually.
