Motorola has started rolling out Android 6.0 Marshmallow update to the Moto X Style smartphone in India. The new update will offer features such as Doze mode, app standby, expandable storage, do not disturb, Google Now on Tap, direct share and more.
Motorola says that users should keep the battery at least 50 percent charged and the phone connected to a Wi-Fi network when installing the update. There will be some changes to the Moto Enhancement features under the Android M update as well.
For starters, Moto Assist will be removed from Moto X Style phones as it is similar to the ‘Do Not Disturb’ feature. Motorola is also getting rid of the Motorola Migrate as Android M enhances support for backing up user data.
Motorola will also retire the Google Chrome extension found in Motorola Connect. Motorola says that given that people have moved beyond SMS and to other OTT messaging apps, it sees no need to continue with the app and will free up some space on your phone.
With Android M, Google promises better battery optimisation, the ability to manage app permissions natively, the Nexus Imprint fingerprint scanner, and Google Now on Tap which shows contextual results around a place, movie, etc.
