With the next OS from Android announced in the Google I/O conference named Android M which stands for Marshmallow and according to the then Senior VP Sunder Pichai who is the CEO of Google now, said that the company has spent time and effort on improving the performance rather than in terms of design and features which we saw in the Android Lollipop which showed a drastic change in the design and features aspect from Android Kitkat.

Which devices will get Android M update after its release

With users still waiting for the Android  Lollipop in many devices it is a very big question from everyone if their device will get the latest Android M OS or not and what are the devices which will be receiving the devices first compared to others. Many users have asked what are the devices which will be getting the Android M OS to plan and buy those devices.

This is not a surprise as the Nexus series is made to get stock android to these devices without any skins over it. And as announced in the Google I/O conference the Developer Preview is already out for Nexus 5, Nexus 6, Nexus 9 and Nexus Player devices. You can install the Developers preview if you want to have a taste of what the Android M might be like, but beware as it might have some bugs and issues as it is a preview and not the final finished OS. With the Andorid 6.0 Marshmallow OS announced the official update is available for Nexus devices.

Motorola Devices:

Motorola is right after the Nexus series in providing latest OS updates to its devices, we could see that with the launch of Android Lollipop release when Moto X and Moto Turbo were one of the first devices to receive the Lollipop update and the same seems to be the case with the Android M update with devices like the Moto X 1st Gen and 2nd Gen along with the Moto Turbo being first in line to receive the Android M update. And devices like Moto G might get the update but Moto E might not get the update sadly.
