Earlier this month, Verizon proudly posted in its support pages that the DROID Turbo 2 was about to get the update to Android 6.0 Marshmallow. However, this information was quickly yanked down, to the puzzlement of many. It seems that, although it’s true that a Marshmallow update was on its way to the device, Verizon wasn’t quite as ready to make the announcement as someone in charge of the forum pages was.

Today, however, we’re finally seeing fully official motion on this update. Details of the jump to Marshmallow have reappeared on Verizon’s site, this time with a specific date: tomorrow. That’s right! Android 6.0 Marshmallow is slated to hit the DROID Turbo 2 on March 1. This update is actually a pair of updates. 23.31.24 is a kind of preliminary software update with Marshmallow following close behind in 24.14.10. This one-two punch will bring such popular features as Google Now On Tap and all the new Emoji you’ve been waiting for right to your DROID Turbo 2.

If you want to obsessively check and see if the update is available for your device, head on over to Settings > Software updates and see if it’s available yet. If not, simply waiting around with your device in your pocket will eventually provide you with an update notification.

What do you think of Marshmallow’s arrival on the DROID Turbo 2? This version of Android has suffered a notoriously slow rollout, but many users are rejoicing to finally see it on their device. Let us know your opinion in the comments below.
