HTC says T-Mobile One M8 will get Android 6.0 starting March 7

Back in mid-January, we learned that HTC was hoping to release Android 6.0 to the T-Mobile One M8 on January 25. That didn’t happen, though, and since then we’ve been wondering when the update might actually be released. Now we know.

HTC’s Mo Versi says that the Android 6.0 update for the T-Mobile One M8 has received technical approval and that the update will begin rolling out on March 7. There’s no official changelog quite yet, but it’s likely that Marshmallow features like Google Now on Tap, improved app permissions, and Doze mode battery saving will be included.

It’s a bummer that the T-Mobile One M8’s Android 6.0 update ended up missing HTC’s targeted rollout date of January 25, but that likely happened because they found some issues that needed to be fixed before the update was released to the public. The good news is that now we’ve got a firm rollout date, and it’s just three days away.

    Finally, my mother in-laws M8 keeps getting soft bricked due to some updates that are “prepping” for 6.0. The only way to get it back to a working state is to do a factory reset in the bootloader. I contacted HTC and they said the only permanent fix was to wait for 6.0 to come, well it’s about damn time!
