Last month, Motorola released the Android 6.0 Marshmallow OS update to the 2015 series flagship Moto X Style in India and now the update has been deployed to its predecessor.
Moto X (2014) owners are receiving the Android 6.0 Marshmallow update OTA (Over-The-Air). It is a little over 880MB in size and brings a new Doze battery saver feature, new security-feature-verified boot system, support for more languages, new contextual assistance feature and other value-added features to enhance user-experience on Moto X (2014).
How to install Android Marshmallow OTA update on Moto X (2014):
[Note: Moto X series owners are advised to make sure the device has at least 70% battery so that the installation doesn't get interrupted mid way. Also make sure to download update on Wi-Fi connection for smooth installation experience and to avoid hefty data bill]

So far, Motorola has released the new OS update to Moto X Style in India, Moto X Pure edition in US and now to Moto X (2014) in India and Brazil.
Other Motorola devices eligible for Android Marshmallow include Moto X Play, Moto Maxx (2014), Moto Turbo (2014), Nexus 6 (2014), Moto G (3rd gen & 2nd gen), Moto E (2015) LTE models only (in select markets).
