Google Nexus received the first Android 6.0 Marshmallow update in October, and it’s now official the OS is coming to several more Motorola devices. Among the devices are X Play, Moto X (2014), Moto X Style, Moto G (2014), Moto G (2015), Moto G (2014) LTE in Brazil, and Moto X Pure Edition in India and Brazil.

David Shuster of Motorola said owners of these Motorola devices in Brazil and India are the first to experience the new updates. Owners in other countries will get the updates in the weeks to follow, reported AndroidPit.

We saw the Moto X (2014) and the Moto X Style get OTA (over-the-air) updates, which means owners of the mobiles will have to wait for notifications to appear to know the update is complete. Motorola recently furnished a list of its handsets eligible for updates, but the dates mentioned are prone to change anytime, reports VC Post.

While the whole world’s waits to know when their phones will get the Android M updates, companies that have already started the rolls-outs include Samsung, Xiaomi, HTC, LG, Sony, Google Motorola, OnePlus and BlackBerry.

Different companies have their own policies for the updates, however. Some offer OTA facilities while others require users to sign the company’s official application.

The BlackBerry Priv launched in November is the first keyboard sliding device to run Android. Since Christmas and the New Year are knocking at our doors, we can expect to see others companies joining the Marshmallow update bandwagon.
