Motorola pushes out Marshmallow for the Moto G (2015) in Europe


Motorola has started rolling out the much-anticipated Marshmallow update to all unlocked variants of the Moto G (2015) located in Europe. Strangely, the upgrade carries a slightly different version number to the firmware that was released for the handset in India and North America, but it appears to bundle the same functionality, as well as a handful of regional bug fixes and stability improvements.

As previously mentioned, this update transports the latest build of Marshmallow to the handset, and for those unaware of the differences between Android 5.0 and Android 6.0, the newest edition brings greater control over application permissions, an enhanced battery-life through Doze, a redesigned application drawer, and last but not least Fingerprint-authentication for payments.

To see if the upgrade is ready for your device, 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.
