If you have a Moto X (2014), there’s good news for you. Motorola has announced a new update, Android v6.0 Marshmallow, across the device. The device is also referred to as Moto X 2nd-Gen. But the Moto E 2nd-Gen will not be receiving the new update.
Motorola Canada made the announcement that Moto X (2014) will be the device that gets the Android Marshmallow update. With regard to Moto E 2nd-Gen, the decision is not final. The company said it will be regularly updating with further developments.

What makes things intriguing for Moto E users is that their 6-month old devices are not getting the update even when an older device is. This comes as a surprise because the company had claimed at the time of Moto E’s release that it will keep getting updated on a regular basis.
The Moto Experience
Motorola has long been known to deliver a purer Android experience than adding its own UI layers. It has always added fewer of its own Enhancements, and only for the purpose of improving the functionality and experience rather than intruding with it.
As part of the new update, the company has also announced that it will be removing some of its ‘enhancements’. These additions are considered to be close to the already existing features in Android v6.0.
Sound & Notification and Do Not Disturb settings have lots of similarities to the company’s own Moto Assist. The company will be scrapping these settings in the new update.
Another new feature that is going to go is Motorola Migrate. This is because Google itself has introduced a new way for taking backups and restoring user apps and programs. Thanks to this feature, it has become easier to move data between different devices.
The Google Chrome Store has several products that offer features like the Motorola Connect. So it is also poised to make an exit.
