Motorola DROID Maxx 2 gets Android 6.0 Marshmallow

Verizon has begun rolling out Android 6.0 Marshmallow for the Motorola DROID Maxx 2. The massive upgrade includes features like Google Now on Tap, plus a whole host of improvements for greater performance, stability, and battery life.

Thanks to its near pure Android experience, Marshmallow on the DROID Maxx 2 isn’t too dissimilar to Marshmallow on a Nexus smartphone. Users can look forward to Now on Tap for instant access to useful information anywhere, and a simpler app permissions system.

Marshmallow also brings Doze, which puts your smartphone into a deep sleep when you’re not using it to prevent apps and services from draining its battery. Most devices see pretty significant battery life improvements with Doze, which are always welcome.

Direct Share is another new feature with Android 6.0 on the DROID Maxx 2, and there are various fixes and improvements under the hood that should make your handset snappier and more stable.

Bear in mind that not all DROID Maxx 2 handsets will receive this update immediately, so don’t worry if you don’t see it yet. Just keep your eyes peeled for that update notification, which should be arriving any day now.
