Motorola Droid Turbo 2 Soak Test For Android 6.0 Marshmallow Begins
Good news for Motorola's Droid Turbo 2 smartphone owners as many users are reporting they have begun receiving the Android 6.0 Marshmallow update.
Users of the Droid Turbo 2 who have already received the software update will now be able to enjoy a slew of enhancements and new features Android 6.0 Marshmallow will bring in its folds.
However, while many believe that the update which is rolling out for the Droid Turbo 2 could possibly be a soak test, a possibility exists that it is the official release. Chances of this being a soak test seem more probable as no official announcement has been made by Motorola and there is no changelog either.
Moreover, Droid Turbo 2 users who have received the software update reveal that it is composed of two parts. The second part of the update reportedly takes the software's version to 24.14.10.
The news of the Droid Turbo 2 getting Android Marshmallow was first revealed by Android Central.
"Android 6.0 Marshmallow is now rolling out to at least some Droid Turbo 2 users as part of what appears to be a soak test. According to a screenshot posted by an Android Central forum user, the update looks to be composed of two parts, with the second moving the Turbo 2 up to Marshmallow and bumping the software version up to 24.14.10," reports the publication.
However, the screenshot in question has now been removed from the forum. The publication asserts that it also received some tips from other users of the Droid Turbo 2 smartphone, who revealed that their handset has also benefitted from the Android 6.0 Marshmallow update.
With the arrival of Android 6.0 Marshmallow, Droid Turbo 2 users will benefit from the Doze feature. So basically, when the handset is inactive for a while it will go into the sleep mode automatically, which will shut down all apps running in the background. This functionality will help increase the battery's standby time, as well as improve its overall life.
Droid Turbo 2 users will also benefit from Google Now On Tap, which will offer information pertaining to the content on the screen. Users will also be able to deny or allow app permission on a feature-by-feature basis.
Whether the software update for the shatterproof screen-equipped Droid Turbo 2 is being pushed out by Motorola as part of a soak test or if it is indeed the official rollout is not clear at this juncture. Either way, it is good news for users. If this is a soak test then it means the release is not far away.
Hopefully, Motorola will solve the mystery and mail an official announcement soon.
