This handset that launched exclusively on Verizon back in October finally gets the Android 6.0 update.

Motorola Droid Maxx 2 arrived back in October exclusively on Verizon Wireless. Back then, the handset was loaded with Android 5.1.1 Lollipop. Now, the time has finally arrived for it to receive its first Android Marshmallow-based software update.

According to Verizon Wireless, a new software update for Droid Maxx 2 is ready. As usual, the carrier has tested the firmware "to optimize device performance, resolve known issues, and apply the latest security patches." The new features that Android 6.0 Marshmallow brings include Doze Mode, Google Now on Tap, granular app permissions, the ability to extend internal device storage to SD cards beyond media files, Direct Share, Moto Assist integration, multiple tweaks and fixes, as well as the usual security updates.

While the OTA should begin its rollout as soon as possible, Verizon Wireless did not mention when is this going to happen. However, since the official update page is up, it should only be a matter of days now. As usual, those eager to get their hands on Marshmallow before more patient users can always perform a manual check.
