android marshmallow update 970 80

Back in 2014, the HTC One M8 was the company’s flagship that was received well by most people even though it sales were not that great.

Besides the original HTC One M8, the company also launched the HTC One M8 Google Play Edition. The Google Play Edition (GPE) is similar to the other version except for the fact that it does not come with HTC’s Sense UI. Since most Android enthusiasts prefer the stock Android nature, Google Play devices tend to be quite popular.

If you have the HTC One M8 Google Play Edition, then you are in luck as you will be getting Android Marshmallow very soon. HTC has just pushed this update to this devices and you should expect to get a notification of the same anytime from today.

The HTC one M8 Google Play Edition is able to get Android 6.0 Marshmallow update before the other variants because the update is handled specifically by Google since the device runs on stock Android unlike the standard HTC One M8 that is heavily skinned with Sense UI. The update has just started rolling out so you should give it time if you don’t have it yet.

With the HTC One M8 Google Play Edition out of the way, we should expect to see Android Marshmallow for the standard HTC One M8 in the next few weeks or month, probably before the end of the year. HTC will probably update the One M8 (2014 flagship) and One M9 (2015 flagship) all at the same time.
