Technology blog Fone Arena has claimed the new Android Marshmallow is now available OTA (Over The Air) to Moto G Turbo. It is 435MB in size and brings the new security feature "verified boot system", a leaner and faster Chrome browser, a more intuitive Now on Tap feature, support for more international languages, new contextual assistance feature, Google Photos, and auto backup from where all apps user data (less than 25MB) will automatically be stored in Google Drive.

Besides the Marshmallow features, the new firmware will bring the December security updates developed by Google.
