This update arrived a few weeks ago but was suspended before reaching all users, and now is back for a full deployment.

Android Marshmallow became official last year, in early October. Unfortunately, there are still many handsets fully capable to run it that did not get the new firmware yet. Motorola Droid Turbo 2 is such a smartphone that also ran into some issues while upgrading to Android Marshmallow.

Motorola had begun the update process of the Droid Turbo 2 a few weeks ago but suspended the rollout before all users received the new firmware. Now, it looks like everyone will finally get it. "I’m pleased to announce we are in full deployment of the Android 6.0 Marshmallow upgrade to Droid Turbo 2 for Verizon," writes Motorola's Senior Director of Software Project Management David Schuster in a Google Plus post.

According to the official release notes, the update brings the usual Marshmallow changes to Droid Turbo 2 - Google Now on Tap, Doze mode, granular app permissions, new emojis, various fixes, tweaks, and the latest security patches. On the other hand, the firmware also packs various changes to the Motorola-exclusive apps like Moto Display, Moto Assist, Moto Actions.

Although I have been writing about new software and hardware for almost a decade, I consider myself to be old school. I always enjoy listening to music on CD or tape instead of digital files and I will not even get into the touchscreen vs physical keys debate. However, I also enjoy new technology, as I now have the chance to take a look at the future every day. I joined the Notebookcheck crew back in 2013 and I have no plans to leave the ship anytime soon.
