American network carrier Verizon has reportedly commenced rolling out Android Marshmallow OS update to the 2014 flagship phone Droid Turbo.
Though, Verizon is yet to revise the company's software support page to officially confirm the release, Droid Turbo owners in the US took to Twitter to announce the arrival of the Marshmallow OS.
The new software update is being rolled out via OTA (Over-The-Air). So, it is expected to take a few more days to reach all corners of the country.
If you have received OTA (Over-The-Air) notification message for this update:
1. Select "Yes, I'm in."
2. After the software is downloaded, select "Install now."
3. After the software is installed, your phone will re-start automatically.
4. Your phone is now updated.
Device owners can also check for updates manually by going to Settings >> About Phone >> System Updates >> check for the new firmware.
Android Marshmallow brings the Doze battery optimisation feature, improved "Now on Tap" search option, support for more international dialects, silent mode to the sound profile, a do-not-disturb option, performance-enhancing optimisations, enhanced boot security system, and many more.
With the release of Marshmallow, Verizon Droid Turbo users will finally heave a sigh of relief, as they waited for this software for more than a year.
However, it will be the last update for the device, as Droid Turbo does not figure in the OEM (Original Equipment Manufacturer) Moto's list of devices eligible for Android Nougat.
So far, Moto has released Nougat update to generic unlocked models of Moto Z Droid and Z Force and also the Verizon exclusive Droid series, as well. Soon, the company will expand the roll-out service to G4 series.
