Motorola Moto G (3rd gen) gets Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow

Motorola Moto G (3rd gen) Android smartphone gets 6.0.1 update
Motorola Moto G (3rd gen)
Although this handset received earlier this year Android 6.0, it now starts to get Android 6.0.1 already, but only in India for the time being.

Motorola seems to be taking Android updates very seriously since they usually update their handsets more frequently than other manufacturers. The third-generation Motorola Moto G got updated to Android 6.0 Marshmallow in India and other regions back in early 2016, but now this handset gets Android 6.0.1-based firmware.

The update looks similar to the one unleashed earlier this week by Motorola for the Moto X Play in the same region. The size of the update package is 371.4 MB, the version number is 24.61.55 while Android 6.0.1 comes with new emojis and a new camera shutter sound. The list of highlights mentioned by Motorola includes three items - Android Security updates, stability improvements, as well as the new camera sound mentioned earlier.

The update rolls out in phases as usual, but those in a hurry can always choose the manual check path - Settings>About Phone>System Updates. We will get back to it once it goes out of India, so stay tuned.

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.
