Motorola's Schuster says Android 6.0 test for Motorola Moto X Pure Edition (2015) is not a soak test

Motorola's Schuster says Android 6.0 test for Motorola Moto X Pure Edition (2015) is not a soak test
Some Motorola Moto X Pure Edition (2015) owners last week, received an invitation to take part in a software test for their device. It would be reasonable to expect that this would be the soak test for the Android 6.0 Marshmallow update. While it would be reasonable, it wouldn't be right. Motorola product manager David Schuster, who has passed along some worthwhile information in the past, posted on his Google+ page that the invitations were not for a Android 6.0 soak test.

While Schuster said that a soak test for Android 6.0 has not started, he did say that a TestDrive for Android 6.0 has begun for the Moto X Pure Edition (2015). This small test will be run for a couple of weeks, and the feedback that Motorola receives from it will determine when the soak test will begin for real. The TestDrive does indicate that Motorola is thinking about the update, which has to be good for those toting a Motorola branded handset expected to be updated to Marshmallow.

If you're interested in being considered for a soak test, you need to be a member of the Motorola Feedback Network. You also have to agree to a confidentiality clause which prevents you from discussing soak tests with the media. As long as Motorola's Schuster keeps us abreast of what is going on, that media blackout shouldn't matter.

I remember once Moto had immediate updates right after the nexus line. Lately it looks like they are taking more and more time.. Or am I wrong?

Yes, but at least it is clear they are working on it. They just seem to be trying to deliver a complete product. I'm ok with that. It's not like we are talking the half year upgrades, or no upgrades at all, like Samsung. Not to mention, the way they are moving to a singular product line away from carriers, it seems like it will be ok over the long term.

So it's a soak test for the soak test. But it isn't a soak test.
