Moto G (2nd gen) Marshmallow soak test begins in Brazil and India

An Android 6.0 Marshmallow soak test is under way for the Moto G (2nd gen) in Brazil and India, signalling that an update is right around the corner.

Moto G 2014-21

Motorola’s Dave Schuster has kindly been keeping everyone updated on the company’s Android 6.0 Marshmallow plans and has brought us some good news today. A Marshmallow soak test is now under way for the Moto G (2nd Gen) in Brazil and India before it rolls out the wider user base, hopefully before the end of the month. This applies to both the 3G and 4G LTE versions of the handset.

To accompany the soak test, Motorola has updated its support page with everything that you need to know about the new software. There’s reference to the new Marshmallow app permissions, do not disturb settings, and Now on Tap, along with Motorola’s own Alert and Assist features, among others. It might make for some useful reading while you wait for the update to download.

Motorola has already updated a number of its newer models to Android 6.0 Marshmallow, including the Moto G Turbo Edition and Moto X Play in India and Brazil. So we have a pretty good idea about what’s included in the update.

Motorola clarifies the future of the Moto G

As is usually the case with soak tests, only a small selection of users will see the update early, just to make sure that there aren’t any last minute bugs that urgently need ironing out. But keep an eye out for that OTA notification in a week or two, as Marshmallow for the Moto G (2nd Gen) model isn’t far away.
