Albeit having been released months ago, much like all of its predecessors, the latest Android version, Marshmallow, is still running only on a relatively small number of devices. Much of it can be attributed to carriers and third party manufacturers, which often take a lot of time to properly re-skin, release certifications, and eventually give the green light to updates.

Fortunately for Verizon customers, however, it looks like Google‘s latest software is beginning its rollout for the Droid Turbo 2. In a note released on Tuesday on Google Plus, Motorola‘s David Schuster confirmed that the upgrade is in “full deployment”…

The arrival of 6.0 — whose imminent rollout should make it available very soon to everyone — brings all the enhancements you would expect.

Doze, the software feature that manages the battery’s power sipping when a device is idle, is present, as well as App Standby, which combined should give the device quite a noticeable boost in battery life. App permissions are obviously onboard, and so are App links, which allow you to better manage whether links should fire up a specific app or rather simply open in the browser.

You will also find Google Now on Tap, the revamped Do Not Disturb mode and the presence of the new expandable storage management in order to integrate SD cards with the internal storage. As far as Moto-specific updates go, Ambient Display has been removed in favor of Moto Display, and “Sleeping and Meeting” and “Driving and Places” modes have made their way onto the Moto Assist app.

You can check all the other minor updates on Motorola’s own website.
