Users of Motorola's fairly new Moto X Style globally unlocked smartphones residing in the UK can now check for Google's Android 6.0 aka Marshmallow OS update. The new software should be in the form of a bulky 650 MB file.
According to an Android Police report, as the rollout will be in a phased manner, it should take some time for the update to reach all Moto X Style owners across the UK and the EU.
Key features to check out for after installing Android 6.0 OS update
Google Doze: Google Doze theoretically reduces numerous background processes/tasks started by Android automatically, enhancing overall battery life of the smartphone when it is left unattended.
• Fingerprint scanner: This functionality is claimed to boost the overall security of the entire smartphone and Android Pay, by introducing biometric sensor technology.
• Google Now: Google Now functionality has been tweaked in Android M to allow users to initiate input with a tap. With this, additional information about any keyword can be obtained by a long press of the home button. More than one reference to content queried by users is provided by Google Now by accurately collating related data.
• Android Pay: Google's contactless mobile payment system enables Android users to make payments at supported retail stores through a virtual account number that represents users' account information on their credit/debit cards. This system does not transmit actual debit/credit card details.
