Marshmallow arrives for the Indian HTC One M8 Eye and global Desire Eye
The update that is currently rolling out in India and in some European countries for the HTC One M8 brings the handset up to Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow, so that’s complete with the new emojis. The update also upgrades Sense to version 7.0 and includes February’s Android security patch. There are two updates to install, the first is a smaller 120MB patch followed up by the main 1.07GB update. So downloading might take some time.

HTC Desire Eye customers in the UAE, Taiwan, and a number of European countries have also spotted a very similar Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow update complete with Sense 7.0 rolling out this week. The update is again arriving in two parts, which combined weighs in at a substantial 1.6GB. So it might be wise to connect yourself up to a Wi-Fi network for this one. As well as this global roll-out for unlocked handsets, AT&T Desire Eye customers are expected to receive the same update later in the month.
As you’re probably aware, Android Marshmallow includes a number of new features, such as Doze, Google Now on Tap, configurable app permissions, and plenty more. HTC’s Sense 7.0 update also packs in a few tweaks to the older 6.0 version, including customisable navigation controls, new Blinkfeed settings, and plenty of options to personalise the look and theme of your device.
If you haven’t spotted the OTA notification yet, you can always head on over to Settings -> About -> Software updates to force a manual check. Let us know if the update has come through for you.See also: Android 6.0 Marshmallow updates roundup – March 4, 2016
