Moto-X-Play-Hands-on-review

The Motorola Moto X Play is receiving Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow updates in Canada and India today. However, the download only comes in at a modest 388MB this time, so we aren’t looking at a huge number of changes here.

That’s because an Android 6.0 update had already been rolled out for the Moto X Play in India back in January and Canada in December, but it looks like the company has found enough time to upgrade the handset to 6.0.1 now too. Android 6.0.1 only really includes the latest emoji pack, but this update also ensures that the handset is kept secure with the latest March Android security patch.

Moto X Pure Android 6.0.1 update

Motorola has made a tweak or two of its own with this update too. The main camera app can now be launched by double pressing on the power button. The sound of the camera shutter has also been changed as well. The update also includes some miscellaneous stability improvements to keep the handset running smoothly.

Have you spotted that OTA update notification on your Moto X Play yet?
