An OTA update containing Google’s latest Android 6.0 (excluding the minor Android 6.0.1 update) is now rolling out to Sprint HTC One M8 units.

Millions of Android users are still waiting to get their hands on the latest software from Google. Subscribers of Sprint who have HTC’s 2014 One M8 flagship will be happy to know that the update is rolling out to everyone as of this moment. The confirmation came from Mo Versi, HTC’s VP of product management, who announced the plans on Twitter yesterday evening.

The Android 6.0 update will bring you all of the latest features from Google. These include the new Now on Tap capability, doze, simplified app permissions, and lots lots more. Google has received a majority of good feedback regarding its latest update since it launched back in May of last year.

When you receive the update, you’ll want to ensure that you’re connected to a Wi-Fi network to avoid data overages. Since it’s a big update, it will take some time to download and install. It’s also recommended that you charge your One M8 to at least 50% prior to installing the software. The update is rolling out in waves like it normally does, so if you don’t get the update today, or tomorrow, don’t be discouraged. If you haven’t received the notification to update yet, try going into settings under ‘About phone’ and then ‘check for new software updates’, this may speed up the process. Happy updating!
