Android Marshmallow now rolling out wide for Moto G 2014

Motorola wasted no time getting Marshmallow updates going for its latest smartphones when Google’s latest platform revision landed last fall, and by November we were already seeing updates hit multiple Moto handsets. And while the manufacturer was quick to start the flow of updates, it’s taking a while to make sure that Marshmallow’s ready for as much Motorola hardware as possible. One handset that’s taken a little while to get its taste of Marshmallow has been the 2014 edition of the always-affordable Moto G, but three weeks back we finally saw progress as the company started getting updates ready for users in India. A full global rollout has taken a little longer than we’d like, but it finally looks like it’s happening, as we get word that users everywhere are gaining access to the update.

We can’t say yet if that means everywhere-everywhere, but reports suggest that Motorola has really take the reins off the second-gen Moto G’s Marshmallow updates, and availability is no longer limited to users residing in select nations. Instead, a growing number of Moto G owners are reporting that updates have just arrived for their phones, with distribution looking like it really started hitting its stride sometime last night.

If you haven’t seen your update arrive yet, don’t worry too much, as even with this expanded support, Motorola could still be taking its time in hitting everyone. Just to be sure, though, you may be able to head into your phone’s settings and manually check for an update.

Let us know in the comments when you’ve got yours, and let us know how Marshmallow’s treating your Moto G.
