A report from Tech Radar has it that Motorola will be upgrading Android 6 Marshmallow for several of its smartphones, including the 2014 devices that are not included in the Nougat update list. Among those units confirmed to get the Marshmallow so far are the Droid Maxx 2  Moto E, Moto G 2015, Moto G 2014, Moto X Force, Moto X Play, Moto X Style, Moto X Pure Edition, Moto x 2014, Nexus 6, and Turbo 2.

Marshmallow is also said to be coming to the 2014 Moto Pure X Edition as well as the 2014 Moto G, the Moto G with 4G LTE, the Moto MAXX, the Moto Turbo, and the Droid Turbo.

In its official press release statement, Motorola happily announced that the Android 6.0 Marshmallow comes with battery-smart features and new app permissions that will give users more control over their device. So, if you are using a Moto phone, expect to see the following changes upon installing the software:

App Standby

This feature can help reduce your phone’s battery drain by giving you the option to put into reduced activity state the apps you seldom use.

App Permissions

With the Marshmallow’s new permission model, apps will only ask permission when it needed to use a feature instead of asking you all at once during the time you install it. This gives you more control over the data you share with your apps.

Expandable Storage

How do you like the idea of having your SD card fully extending your device internal storage rather just being used for storing media files?

Well here’s the thing, once you upgrade to Android Marshmallow, you will be given the option to use your SD card as portable storage or internal storage. The latter will allow you to store the games and apps you downloaded in your SD card as it will act is the extension of your phone’s internal storage. So how about that?

By the way, Motorola Marshmallow is not the only thing getting the update. Motorola Nougat is upgrading too. Check this out!
