The update is via OTA for all the Moto G 3rd Gen users in India, if the update notification has not appeared on your device yet, you can check it manually on the settings menu. Go to Settings > About Phone > System Update on your smartphone. If the update still doesn’t show up, wait as it takes some time to reach every device. We just checked our Moto G 3rd Gen, and we had received the update. ( We will review it soon)
Here is a quick note about the Android 6.0 (Marshmallow) update for the Moto G (3rd Gen). The version for this update has been marked as v24.11.25, which is 2GB in size (it’s huge right..? you will need to clear up some storage on your phone to make space). The update brings along Android security update (patches) for December. It will also introduce a host of new features such as overhauled app permissions, Doze, Google Now on Tap, Android Pay, and many more.
Of course, since this is a Motorola device, your phone will continue to run a near-stock version of Android even after the Marshmallow update. Motorola’s Migrate and Moto Assist apps have been removed, as similar features are now built in on Android 6.0. It’s impressive how the Lenovo-owned company has rolled out Android 6.0 to so many devices in such a short time. The latest version of the operating system has also been released to the Moto X Play; it hasn’t made its way to India yet, but it shouldn’t be long before that changes.
Does your Moto G got the update..? Do tell us in comments.
