The update weighs in at a hefty 1.14GB, so the download might take a while and the installation time is estimated at 60 minutes.

The update to Android 6.0 Marshmallow means that HTCOne M8 customers will be able to make use of more definable app permissions, Doze battery optimizations, and Now on Tap for additional display contextualised information. Not to mention the security patches that HTCwill have implemented.

HTC is continuing to push Android Marshmallow updates to its flagship handsets this year. Additional regions and some carrier branded models of the One M8 are expected to see similar updates arrive this month or next.

If you haven’t received an OTA update notification yet, now might be a good time to force a manual check through the settings menu.
