HTC rolls out Android 6.0 update for the One M8 in Asia


After a successful rollout in the United States last month, HTC is now pushing out the Android 6.0 update to all factory unlocked models of the One M8 located in Asia. The upgrade weighs in at a hefty 1.14GB and the Taiwanese company claims it will take around an hour to download and install on your handset. The duration does, of course, depend on the strength of your Internet connection and the download speed your ISP provides.

In addition to all the new functionality Marshmallow brings, including Now on Tap, flexible application permissions, system-wide fingerprint compatibility and Doze, the update also carries a new version of HTC’s Sense user interface, which complies with Google’s Material Design guidelines.

As is customary, the upgrade is being rolled out in stages. To see if it’s ready for your handset, open up the Settings application, scroll right down to the bottom and tap on About Device, select the System Updates subheading, then tap Check for Updates. Alternatively, you can wait until you receive a push notification prompting you to download and install it.
