Android 6.0 not coming to the Verizon and AT&T Moto X (2nd gen)


The Motorola Moto X (2nd gen) was strangely not included in the list of Motorola phones that will be receiving the Android 6.0 Marshmallow update. Motorola only lists the Moto X Pure Edition (2nd gen) to get the update and not the carrier variant Moto X.

It’s possible they just forgot to include it or made a mistake, but according to Matt, the Motorola forums manager, the AT&T and Verizon variants definitely will not be updated to the latest version of Android.

That really sucks for the Moto X owners because the phone is only about one year old. Technically, this isn’t officially from the high ups at Motorola and they might update it in the future, but it isn’t looking good.

    I’ll be making the leap to Android next year (I stuck with iPhone at my wife’s insistence), and when I do, I’ll be buying a Nexus device directly from Google for this exact reason.

      Not a bad idea. Really, any real major phone will get updates. LG G4, Samsung S6 or Note series, I think HTC promises minimum 2yrs of updates.

        True, but I do like to get a new device every year (I like my toys!), and Nexus devices are affordable enough for me to do that. I almost got the Galaxy S6, but it’s as expensive as an iPhone. Ditto HTC. LG’s G4 was nice enough and cheaper, but I didn’t like how it felt in my hand.
