Motorola has started seeding Android 6.0 Marshmallow to Droid Turbo 2 users who are on Verizon's subscriber base in the US. In December 2015 the Android 6.0 was released for selective devices for a soak test as well as for some Verizon employees who were using the Droid Turbo 2.

The Turbo 2 will notify you when the update is available automatically, but just in case you need to manually check, go to Settings>System updates. In case the update is available, your Droid Turbo 2 will now be on build 24.14.9.

Droid Life reports that one of the significant changes after the update noticed by users was the disappearance of the "ambient display" mode that seems to have been removed and pushed back to Motorola's own Moto Display technology. The update will bring new Moto Assist functions as well. Owners can also expect the latest February security patch from Google.

Android Marshmallow comes with an array of features like Now On Tap, App standby, Doze mode, the new and improved app permissions system, adoptable storage, slightly revamped Do Not Disturb mode, expanded volume controls, Direct share, and Attentive Display now part of Moto Actions.

What is set to be beneficial for the Droid Turbo 2 in specific is the Doze mode that saves battery. The device already has one of the best power capacities, a 3,760 mAh battery with a solid one-time charge lasting for up to 48 hours with regular use. The Doze mode will only enhance the power saving capacity for the device.

Recently, the Motorola Moto X Pure Edition, a handset that shares much of its hardware with the Droid Turbo 2 received its Android 6.0 Marshmallow update. Motorola has also successfully started to roll out the Marshmallow update for all of its Android Wear devices like the Moto 360, Moto 360 (2nd Gen) and the Moto Sport.
