Great news for the Indian owners of a Moto G 2015! After Motorola has upgraded its Moto X Play to Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow, this update is now rolling out to the budget handset, over the air. On the other hand, Huawei has announced on its Twitter account that the Honor 7 will receive 6.0 Marshmallow in Europe, also via OTA.
According to the changelog for the Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow update, the Moto G (Gen. 3) will benefit from the same changes and additions: the security update for March and Unicode 8.0 emoji support. In addition, this handset has a new camera shutter tone switch so that users can turn on/off the shutter sound.
Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow rolls out over-the-air, but the users who don’t receive the update notification, they can manually check for it, by going to their devices’ Settings app and navigating to About Phone > System Updates. Users should connect to a WiFi network before downloading the 24.61.55 update, because it weighs 371.4MB.
Back in January, the Moto G (Gen. 3), which was released with Android 5.1.1 Lollipop out of the box, was upgraded to 6.0 Marshmallow and besides the new features such as Google Now on Tap, Doze, revamped app permissions etc, the phone has received Google’s security patches and Motorola’s own features and changes. Therefore, the Moto Assist feature has been removed, because Marshmallow already includes the Do Not Disturb mode, under the Sound and notification settings.
As for the Huawei Honor 7, this handset is finally being upgraded to Android 6.0, a month later as it was scheduled. Huawei has announced on its Twitter account that “The Marshmallow update for Honor 7 is out from today forward via OTA. #honor #forthebravepic,” so users from Europe should receive the update notification in the next days. Also, if Android 6 Marshmallow doesn’t arrive on time, users can access the About Device submenu and, there, they will see the option to update their software.
