Motorola Droid Turbo 2 is finally getting its Android 6.0 Marshmallow update

Motorola Droid Turbo 2 is finally getting its Android 6.0 Marshmallow update
Verizon and Motorola have taken their sweet time to release an official Android 6.0 Marshmallow update for the Moto Droid Turbo 2, but, as of today, the update is finally, definitely rolling out.

David Schuster, Senior Director of Software Product Management at Motorola Mobility, says that they're still "soak testing" the upgrade, "monitor it for a few days and, with good results, proceed to full deployment." However, the folks over at Droid-life are confirming that the update is already available to regular users - thus, we assume that everyone is about to get it. This is a two-part update, and you can manually check if it's available for your Droid Turbo 2 by going to Settings -> System update -> Check for system update.

Android Marshmallow is bringing a lot of new features to the Droid Turbo 2, including a new app permissions model, Doze (a feature that increases battery stand-by time), Now on Tap (providing Google Now contextual results), enhanced settings and controls, and so on. You can find out more details about the update at Motorola and Verizon (see the source links below).

In case you want to buy a Droid Turbo 2, the handset is currently offered by Verizon starting at $24 per month for 2 years, or for $624 outright. For a closer look at the smartphone, make sure to check out our Droid Turbo 2 review.

Does the Turbo have significant sales? Great phone. Hopefully this will bump up the latest and greatest Android OS over a 3-4% instal base if it does.

It seems like everyone was jumping on Lollipop and it gave me hope for OEM's. But here we are again with OEM's and carriers dragging their @$$ on updating their devices.

Mine got pretty hot too. I waited a few minutes in between the two updates to allow it to cool. I didn't have any problems.

Been checking my phone everyday for this update for the last two months. It just showed up this morning! Just click 'Check for updates', takes about 45 mins for both updates.
