HTC One (M8) Google Play edition faces a delay on receiving Android 6.0 update

HTC's VP of product management, Mo Versi, is known for keeping HTC customers notified about software updates using his Twitter account. On Friday, he sent out a tweet that disseminated both bad news and good news for owners of the HTC One (M8) Google Play edition. The bad news is that there is a delay in updating the phone.

Versi's tweet reveals that HTC had to "re-spin" the software. The good news is that the executive expects Technical Approval for the update to take place sometime during the next few days. Once that happens, the update is good to go.

The Google Play edition version of a phone removes the manufacturer's skin and all carrier bloatware from a device, leaving stock Android. The HTC One (M8) GPe was released last March, priced at $699. Out of the box, the handset came loaded with Android 4.4.2. If all goes well, your HTC One (M8) Google Play edition will soon be running Android 6.0 Marshmallow.

Thanks for the tip!
