HTC One M8 GPE now getting Android 6.0 Marshmallow

One M8 GPE

Just as promised a few days ago, #HTC has now started sending out the #Android 6.0 update to the Google Play Edition #OneM8 smartphone. Being a GPE device, the handset is promised Nexus like software support and it’s good to see the company sticking to that promise. The One M8 GPE is one of the last known GPE devices in the market, so this update is quite crucial for the company.

The update is said to be a hefty 472MB for the owners of the GPE One M8, but that shouldn’t be a problem given what it’s bringing to the table. Knowing that the handset runs a stock version of Android, you can expect the same changes that we saw with the Nexus Marshmallow updates. This includes Google Now on Tap, Doze mode for enhanced battery performance and some improvements to Google Now functionality.

If you’re impatient to wait for the update, you can install it manually by downloading the link below which comes directly from Google.
