Motorola hasn't announced Android 6.0 Marshmallow update schedule for its devices, including Moto X Pure Edition (known as Moto X Style outside USA), Moto G, Moto E, Moto X Play and others but its release is expected to happen sooner than later considering the company's proximity with Google.

The search giant has already rolled out Android 6.0 Marshmallow OTA (over-the-air) update to its devices -- LG Nexus 5, Motorola Nexus 6, Nexus 7 (2013), Nexus 9 and Nexus Player – but it is still released to devices from other smartphone makers, including Samsung, LG, HTC, Sony and others.

It is reported that Motorola, which collaborated with Google for its Nexus 6 that has already received Android 6.0 Marshmallow update, will be one of the first to release the firmware to its devices. A section of the media went to the extent of claiming that the software will be released soon, perhaps in November.

However, nothing is confirmed as of now, as Motorola is yet to reveal the firmware update schedule for its devices. GottaBeMobile has claimed in a report that Motorola has started testing Android 6.0 Marshmallow for its Moto X Pure Edition but there was no mention of its release details. 

Meanwhile, David Schuster of Motorola hinted on his Google+ account that the new firmware could come to Motorola devices soon.

"There have been a couple reports of a Marshmallow "soak test" that has started for Moto X 2015 Pure Edition. Just want to make it clear that we have NOT started a formal "soak test". We have started a small TestDrive for the Marshmallow upgrade on Moto X 2015 Pure Edition," David wrote on Google+

It may be recalled that Motorola has confirmed the devices that will receive the software.

Here are devices that will receive Google's Android 6.0 Marshmallow: Moto X Pure Edition (3rd Gen), Moto X Pure Edition (2nd Gen), Moto X Style (3rd Gen), Moto X Play, Moto X (2nd Gen), Moto Maxx (2014), Moto Turbo (2014), Nexus 6 (2014), Moto G (3rd Gen), and Moto G (2 Gen).
