While many Android loyalists are awaiting the Android 6 Marshmallow update, Google has rolled out the latest OS for the Nexus devices out there. This means that all Nexus handsets will now gradually be receiving the Android 6 OTA update.
However, the OTA roll out of the Marshmallow sweetness on all Nexus devices could take a number of weeks and for those who can’t wait there is an alternate option. As noted by Digital Trends, Android loyalists can “download the official OTA update straight from Google and manually install it.”
The site lists two ways to get this done, one of them involves flashing a factory image, which then requires downloading the Android software right from scratch. The other is installing the OTA update directly from Google, which is what will be coming to the Nexus device in the few weeks time.
In any case, users should backup their data and consider this as one of the most important things to do before they began downloading the update. Just in case anything goes wrong, it’s best to have the backup. Users can find the complete guide to download the OTA update from Google here.
In addition to all the other Nexus devices gearing up to enjoy all the Marshmallow goodness, a first major update 6.0.1 for Nexus 6 devices has arrived. As noted by GottabeMobile, Android 6.0.1 comes along with the company’s security update for its flagship devices.
