    After far too many starts and stops, Big Red is pushing out the big Marshmallow to the most recent Droid. Yep... that's right! Verizon has finally started rolling out Android 6.0 Marshmallow to the Motorola Droid Turbo 2.

    You can breathe a sigh of relief as software version 24.14.11 should start downloading on to your device sometime within the next few days/week. Along with the usual core improvements from moving to the latest Android OS, there are several addons and enhancements that Verizon included.

    This includes Now on Tap, Doze mode, App Standby, App permissions, App links, Expandable Storage and more. Expandable Storage is one of the more interesting new features. Here's a quote with a few extra details,

    Be sure to hit up the source link for even more info, and sound off when you get your update! Here's our dedicate section for further discussion: Motorola DROID Turbo 2

    The pain, the agony, that even a Droid is getting marshmallow before my AT&T Note 5.

    It may be close to time to consider making the switch back to VZW. :p

    Don't let VZW pushing a few updates to 2 or 3 devices make you think they are all of a sudden on top of updates. I'd have to see a good solid year of updates to believe they are on the job.

    Both my phone and my wife's are running 6.0. So far so good, seems to be smooth. Verizon apparently decided that they don't want to support WiFi calling on their Droids (it is not included), but other than that no complaints yet.

    Part 2 has to be on WiFi, and then Google Play Services takes a while to update. Enjoy!

    turbo 2 came out end of October. I'd say 4 months is pretty quick.
