Sprint's HTC One (M8) to receive Android 6.0 update starting tonight
Sprint owners with the HTC One (M8) will be happy to know that starting tonight, Android 6.0 will start getting pushed out to the device via an OTA update. This news comes from none other than Mo Versi, HTC's VP of product management, who often tweets the latest on HTC's update plans. Versi sent out a tweet today, revealing that technical approval has been received for the Android 6.0 update on the HTC One (M8) and the special Harman Kardon edition of the handset.

Android 6.0 includes new features like Doze. This helps improve standby times and battery life by putting the phone into a deep sleep when it is not being used. The update also brings the ability of users to approve or deny permissions for apps on a feature-by-feature basis. And Google Now On Tap will provide search results based on content found on the screen.

Once you receive notification that the update has reached your HTC One (M8), make sure that your phone is connected to a Wi-Fi network. Also, you should check to make sure that your battery is charged to at least 50%. Remember, the update is sent out in waves. This means that your phone might not be among those that receive the update today, tomorrow, or even over the next few days. Be patient and before you know it, you will be rockin' Android 6.0 on your One (M8).

I received mine last night. After doing the power button/ up volume button reset, it's running smoothly. Thanks HTC for the fast update.
