Moto X Style, Moto X Gen 2 Start Receiving Android 6.0 Marshmallow Update in Brazil and India

Motorola as promised has started rolling Android 6.0 Marshmallow update in Brazil and India. Announcing the news, David Schuster, Senior Director, Software Product Management, confirmed that Moto X Style users in Brazil as well as India will start receiving the Android 6.0 Marshmallow update in stages, alongside the Moto X (Gen 2) users in Brazil. 

Schuster in a Google+ post said, "Full deployment will proceed in stages over the next few weeks. It is not yet available for pull, you will receive a notification on your phone when you are able to update your phone. We have also started the approval process for 2015 Moto X Pure Edition (3rd Gen) and expect to push it out in the next few weeks". 


Here are a few of the new improvements and features in the Marshmallow upgrade:
  • A new Memory Manager that lets you check memory usage of all your installed apps
  • Volume controls have been greatly improved
  • Do not disturb button has been added to the quick settings panel for easy access.
  • System UI Tuner will appear in the settings menu at the very bottom once enabled. It provides a few simple UI tweaks.
  • Google Now on Tap allows contextual information to be delivered based on content on your screen with a long press of the home key.
  • Doze is a battery management feature that detects when your device is not in use and it  will automatically go into a deep sleep state which saves your battery.App Standby reduces battery drain by putting seldom-used apps into a reduced activity state.
  • Expandable Storage support allows for microSD cards to be used either in a portable storage or an internal storage mode. Portable storage allows your pictures, videos, audio and other media files to be stored. Internal storage allows both media storage along with apps and games but can not be used by other devices.
  • RAM manager in settings which allows a consumer to view memory used by the system or an individual app over different time frames
  • Automatic App backup not only backs up your apps but their associated data so when restored they will be the same as they were before
  • Text selection has been improved
