Ever since Google announced the new Android 6.0 Marshmallow, many users have been asking whether their device will be getting the update or not, and if yes, then when the update will arrive. The answer, however, depends on whether your device’s manufacturer and carrier are interested in offering you the update.

A few manufacturers have already announced their plans regarding which devices will be getting the update; and for those that are not getting the update, they can always go the custom ROM way. However, installing a custom ROM is a bit tricky and not for everyone.

Here’s the current  list of devices that will be getting the Android Marshmallow update.

Google Nexus

Google’s latest Nexus devices, the all new Nexus 5X and Nexus 6P, will ship with Android Marshmallow pre-installed. Apart from that, see below for the other Nexus devices that will get the Android Marshmallow update:

  • Nexus 7 (2013 edition)

  • Nexus Player

If you are using Nexus 4, the original Nexus 7 and Nexus 10 devices, then unfortunately you won’t be getting the update.
