Verizon is not the best when it comes to fast rolling out of software updates and this can be seen with the latest Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow push to the Moto Droid Turbo.
Every Android user is looking forward to the release of Android Nougat in the coming days, but it is only now that Verizon is rolling out last year’s Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow to the Motorola Droid Turbo – a phone that was released back in October 2014.
The giant American carrier has not released the change log brought about by this rollout on its official page, but the update has already been confirmed for the Moto Droid Turbo phone that was previously based on Android Lollipop. According to the reports, the new Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow will hit the Droid Turbo carrying version number 24.81.5.en-US.
The Marshmallow update is coming to the Moto Droid Turbo as an OTA and as usual with other similar updates, not all devices will be receiving the OS at the same time. Nonetheless, the fact that Verizon has finally availed the OS to the Droid Turbo is a huge relief for many of those who are still using the handset.
Like past Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow updates, the Moto Droid Turbo will be updated with new features that include Wi-Fi Calling where users can easily place and receive calls over Wi-Fi in cases where there is no cellular connectivity. The update also brings Now on Tap, a feature that lets Google Now feed you with contextual results regardless of the app or page you are using. If 3900mAh battery unit used on the Moto Droid Turbo is draining out too fast, you now have the Doze mode to help reduce the amount of power used when not using the phone.
You can also expect to come across a bunch of bug fixes and performance improvements once the new Marshmallow update is installed on your Moto Droid Turbo.
