Android 6.0 Marshmallow update for Motorola Moto X Pure Edition to arrive in the next few weeks
As you may know, the Motorola Moto X Style that's sold around the world has a different name in the US: Moto X Pure Edition. But the devices are identical anyway, so, after hearing that the Moto X Style is being updated to Android 6.0 Marshmallow in Brazil and India, you may be wondering when the Moto X Pure Edition is going to get the update in the US. Well, it's going to happen soon.

According to David Schuster (Senior Director of Software Product Management at Motorola Mobility), the Android 6.0 Marshmallow update for the Moto X Pure Edition should be available to end users starting "the next few weeks."

Android 6.0 Marshmallow brings many new features and enhancements, including Google Now on Tap, a new app permissions model, Doze (for longer battery stand-by times), improved volume controls, System UI Tuner, and lots more.

Other Motorola smartphones, including the Moto X (2014), Moto G (2015), and Moto E (2015), are also going to get Android 6.0 Marshmallow (soon, hopefully).

Seems like Motorola is rolling back to some of their old habits with the previous devices.

My Nexus 6 still doesn't have Marshmallow. Still stuck on the AT&T update LMY48Y. Total BS. Nexus "fast updates" are totally bs when a carrier can halt the process.

So a carrier Nexus is not a Nexus. Should consider getting unlock phone in the future.

Try taking the SIM card out and clear cache and reboot a few times and it might update over WiFi. I have read that working for some.

'Pure Edition' sounds more like Handicap Edition. LOL That's why Samsung rule the Android.

Lately all the operating systems just look the same, if you look at it from a distance you can't really tell a difference, i take that back windows phone 10 had a design change, it look similar to windows 8.1 but it's not, it's much more elegant, but every other operating system just look the same from from 2 to 3 years ago, Google and apple need a design change, beside a few features here and there, they look exactly alike from 3 years ago, it's time for a bigger change then few things here and there,

Got marshmallow yesterday. Seemed to freeze some apps. So like with all big updates, I made sure everything was saved to cloud, hit hard reset, since then the new stuff works pretty smooth so far.
