Motorola on Thursday announced the Moto X Pure Edition should receive the Android 6.0 Marshmallow update over the next few weeks—assuming the approval process goes off without a hitch.
The company shared an entire change-log in hopes of hyping people up about the update, which includes improved volume controls, Now on Tap, and the ability to use expandable storage in either portable or internal storage modes. But that’s not all; you can see more of the major changes in the list below, which comes straight from Motorola’s David Schuster, who works as product manager at the company.
In addition to news about Marshmallow hitting the Pure, Schuster also revealed Brazilian customers who own the Moto X (2014) will get Marshmallow in the coming weeks, as will owners of the Moto X Style in Brazil and India.
Here’s a look at some of the included changes:
- A new Memory Manager that lets you check memory usage of all your installed apps
- Volume controls have been greatly improved
- Do not disturb button has been added to the quick settings panel for easy access.
- System UI Tuner will appear in the settings menu at the very bottom once enabled. It provides a few simple UI tweaks.
- Google Now on Tap allows contextual information to be delivered based on content on your screen with a long press of the home key.
- Doze is a battery management feature that detects when your device is not in use and it will automatically go into a deep sleep state which saves your battery.
- App Standby reduces battery drain by putting seldom-used apps into a reduced activity state.
- Expandable Storage support allows for microSD cards to be used either in a portable storage or an internal storage mode. Portable storage allows your pictures, videos, audio and other media files to be stored. Internal storage allows both media storage along with apps and games but can not be used by other devices.
- RAM manager in settings which allows a consumer to view memory used by the system or an individual app over different time frames
- Automatic App backup not only backs up your apps but their associated data so when restored they will be the same as they were before
- Text selection has been improved
