Verizon HTC One M8 now receiving Marshmallow update

Android 6.0 Marshmallow is now rolling out to the HTC One M8 on Verizon. According to Verizon's support documents, it looks like the bump up to Marshmallow is the second portion of a pair of updates, culminating in software version 6.21.605.3. Do keep in mind that the update has just begun rolling out, so it may take some time to land for everyone. Once updated, however, users will be able to take advantage of features like Doze Mode, Google Now on Tap and more.

In other update news, Verizon's update tracker indicates that a few other, more minor updates are now rolling out to the Samsung Gear S and Nexus 7 on the carrier. For the Nexus 7, you're looking at a bump up to the latest security patches, while the Samsung Gear S update fixes some issues with Wi-Fi and Bluetooth.
