Android Marshmallow Update Released For Motorola Moto X Style In India, Cyanogen CM13 Will Release For LG G4, LG G3, Moto X, OnePlus One, And More

The Android 6.0 Marshmallow Update is being released for the Moto X Style in India as well and this frees some space for users. The new update for the Moto X Style will come with new features like app standby, expandable storage, Doze Mode, Google Now on Tap, Direct Share, Do Not Disturb and much more.

While installing the update, Motorola has recommended that the phone should have 50% battery life and it should be connected to Wi-Fi network. At the same time, there will be some Moto Enhancement features provided under the Android M update as well.

The Moto X Style Phones will have the Moto Assist features removed as it is quite similar to the Do Not Disturb feature. Android M already enhances support for backing up user data and this is why Motorola is already getting rid of the Moto Migrate feature. The Google Chrome extension found in Moto Connect will also be retired by Motorola.

Motorola declared that people have moved away from Messaging to other OTT apps, and therefore, there is no need to continue with the application and thankfully, this will free some space on the device as well.

Google promises better battery optimization with the latest Android M and app permissions can be managed perfectly with this application. The Google Now on Tap will show contextual results around a place, movie, etc. and the Nexus Imprint fingerprint scanner will be included as well.

Most of the Android smartphones are presently waiting for the official OTA update of Android 6.0 Marshmallow which is the latest operating system for Android, released from Google. According to the latest reports, CyanogenMod CM13 is already running Android 6.0 Marshmallow and is further available for a handful of Android devices.

CyanogenMod announced the release of Android Marshmallow on its blog and declared that they are keeping it quiet on the CM13 progress. However, there is a lot of work going on behind the scenes.

The first wave of devices to receive Cyanogen Mod CM13 has already been enabled by the company, referring to the nightly-updated builds of CyanogenMod’s latest custom Android ROM. Meanwhile, there are seven lucky first-wave devices that will receive the CM13 Android 6.0 release from Cyanogen Mod. They are as follows:-

  • Moto X 2014 – “victara”
  • Nexus 7 – “deb” and “flow”
  • LG G4 – “h815”
  • OnePlus One – “bacon”
  • Galaxy Tab Pro 8.4 – “mondrianwifi”
  • LG G3 Verizon – “vs985”
  • LG G Pad 7.0 – “v 400” and “v410”

It was further revealed by CyanogenMod that their device roster is starting small it was promised that the list will keep growing with time, over the next few weeks.

Cyanogen announced that it is a decent spread of OEMs and they have kind of spread all over the place. The company indicated that they are working on other CM 12.1 devices and the list should keep increasing with time. In case you are not familiar with updating your device through CyanogenMod, this is an installation that you should approach with caution.

The bootloader needs to be unlocked on devices before beginning with the installation. This will result in warranties being voided in various cases.

However, in case your device is already running CM nightly, you can update to CM13 with a simple OTA update as soon as you notice the CM13 notification. There is also an option for you to manually download the update and then flash CM13.
