Motorola will soon update many handsets with Android 6.0 Marshmallow and, at the end of last week, has unveiled the list of devices that would get the new firmware. The company also mentioned a few Marshmallow highlights they are excited about.

According to the post published on October 2nd on The Official Motorola Blog, the company's favorite "sweet enhancements" that come with Android 6.0 are Android Pay, Direct Share, Now on Tap, Doze Mode, as well as the improved volume controls. Right now, the full list of handsets that will get the update is this:

  • 2015 Moto X Pure Edition (3rd gen)
  • 2015 Moto X Style (3rd gen)
  • 2015 Moto X Play
  • 2015 Moto G (3rd gen)
  • 2014 Moto X Pure Edition in the US (2nd gen)
  • 2014 Moto X in Latin America, Europe and Asia (2nd gen)
  • 2014 Moto G and Moto G with 4G LTE (2nd gen)
  • DROID Turbo
  • 2014 Moto MAXX
  • 2014 Moto Turbo
  • Nexus 6

As time goes by, more Motorola handsets should join the list. Unfortunately, there is no ETA for now. "We’ll work fast but we won’t push the upgrades out until we know they’re ready," wrote Motorola's VP of Software Product Management Bjorn Kilburn.

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.
