Motorola has teased its intentions to use the latest Android software and incorporate it in its line of devices. Recently, that plan materialized when Motorola's latest unit receives an Android 6.0 Marshmallow update.

The Moto G device that was initially released last July in India first received an Android 5.1 Lollipop update before getting an option to upgrade it to Android 6.0 Marshmallow. This newest software version that was previously known as 'Android M' comes with new features such as revamped app permissions. Some of these new tools are enabling Tap method for Google Now, Mobile Payment System available for Google Play and fingerprint APIs. It also fixed some security issues that the older versions weren't able to do so.

When Motorola first announced the arrival of Android 6.0 on Moto G, the mobile company also made its own specific changes that its customers will notice once they upgrade to the newest software update. Two of the changes that Motorola users can expect are the removal of both Moto Assist and "Migrate" features. It also has been revealed that a new option called 'Do Not Disturb' will be available under the 'Sound and Notification' settings tab, where it will work the same way as what Moto Assist does.

The released statement also included that these changes should not come as a surprise since the mobile company owned by Lenovo has previously announced a few months ago that these features will be a part of the Android M. Therefore, it will be removed from the device to avoid redundancy. The Moto G Android 6.0 update was first spotted by the site Android Beta, where it shared pictures and screenshots showing the successfully running Marshmallow 6.0 software present on the Motorola phone.
