After weeks of testing, Motorola today confirmed the Android 6.0 Marshmallow update begins for its Moto X Pure Edition for most U.S. owners. The Moto X on Verizon, US Cellular and Sprint are the first to get the updates. Other carriers will follow soon.

Last month, Motorola announced the Android 6.0 Marshmallow updates will be rolled-out for many of its devices. And a few weeks back, the company confirmed the soak test for the new 2015 Moto X Pure Edition. Now that testing has finally come to an end, the updates are ready to roll-out.

This year, carriers didn't sell Motorola’s Moto X because it’s been unlocked and works on all carriers. So, it’s expected the update will be distributed for all versions at once. For some inexplicable reason, AT&T and T-Mobile have been left out.

In November, Motorola outwitted several other manufacturers to get Android 6.0 Marshmallow first while the Android 5.1 Lollipop was rolled-out for older devices. Similar to the Moto X 2nd Gen and Moto G, the 3rd Gen Moto X Pure Edition is scheduled for the update.

The 2015 Moto X Pure Edition will getting the Android 6.0 Marshmallow update and will see tons of changes, new features, better battery life and a host of fixes.

Apart from that, the update comes with changes such as Doze for battery life improvements, Android Pay, Google Now on Tap, Direct Share and improved volume controls.

It’s expected the other three carriers will receive the Android 6.0 Marshmallow update before the end of the week.
