Google may have put the kibosh on the Google Play Edition phone program a while ago, but for owners of the few devices that came out of that program, you’re probably wondering if and when you’ll get some Marshmallow lovin’. For HTC One M8 GPE owners, the update was supposed to hit sometime in October but, unfortunately, HTC would later reveal that the update had been delayed.
For the few out there with the M8 GPE, the good news is that Android 6.0 Marshmallow is finally starting to roll out! The 450.4MB file brings all the stock Android goodness you’d expect from a proper Nexus device, including new permission settings, Doze power savings, Google Now on Tap, tons of bug fixes, and other new features and general improvements.
Android 6.0 Marshmallow – New features explained
The arrival of Marshmallow to the HTC One M8 GPE means that HTC now offers two devices with support for Android 6.0, the first being the HTC One A9, which recently arrived with Android 6.0 and the latest version of Sense in tow. Those with older flagships like the One M9 and One M8 (non-GPE) should see the update sometime by the end of 2015, though no other specifics have been revealed just yet.
For those HTC One M8 GPE owners, have you upgraded to Marshmallow yet? If so, what do you think so far?
