    Those on T-Mobile who pulled the SIM to download - any gotchas to know about? Is Band 12 working or no? WIll do it tonight if all is well.
    How do I check??
    There's some discussion about that here with a code and app name. There might be some other apps mentioned but scattered about other threads.

    Push Bullet works great. I even had a friend who bought the XPE, too, start using it. It is a very cool app but I just can't see myself spending $40 for it.
    Referring to the Motorola Connect Chrome Extension - that was never available for the Moto X Pure Edition.

    #3 annoys me the most. Step backwards IMHO. May have to revert to an app I used on an old phone. When I received the Pure (5.1.1), it was great to see those controls in the Sound settings so I could eliminate another unneeded app. (sigh)
    Not sure if this helps but when you open Play Music and go into settings there is an "Equalizer" wherein you can adjust EQ settings for the phone speakers as well as wired headphones. I just tried it and it works just fine!

    So far, this update absolutely sucks for me:

    1. exFAT 200GB card did not work and forced to format FAT32: Wrong: exFAT again, but still forced to reformat and start over with it
    2. Windows explorer does not see internal or external storage in any computer or laptop I tried (it did show them before for drag and drop). It shows the icon for the device, but no drives. Wrong: MTP needs to be chosen with MM
    3. Equalizer is gone and sound quality is now flat. No option for headphone or speakers now. Sound not as good without the setting options.
    4. The option to drag up on the circle at bottom and chose an app is gone now. I used that to turn the display off instead of power button.

    Added: Item 2 is a Marshmallow issue and you have to pick MTP now. Jeepers. The other three still suck. Sorry for being cranky, but the 200GB card issue and equalizer setting gone tick me off.

    That is what I have found so far.

    Thanks for the reply! That's OK if I'm using Play Music, but I have other stuff stored on my phone or sd card or that I may want to listen to from a website. Just seems like an unfortunate loss of function to me.

    What are some of the issues people are experiencing since updating to Marshmallow? Volume fades in and out on full volume youtube video. Also looks like there is a pixel issue running down the screen. You can see it more while looking at a text message. Anyone else seeing these issues?
    The EQ settings are gone (impacts sound quality in bad way).

    The ability to swipe up the circle to activate an app is gone.

    EQ settings is probably a firmware break, but the swipe loss is probably MM.

    Everything works flawlessly for me. Can't wait to get some battery stats on DOZE.
    Doze only helps when the device is still and not being used. Both mutually inclusive for Doze to doze. Seems it will be more an improvement for tablets since left alone more than a phone.

    AT&T here, powered down, pulled the sim, powered back up on WIFI only - no update. Tried repeatedly - no update.
    I left the Sim out of the phone overnight, nothing in the morning when I woke, but I did another reboot of the phone and now it is downloading the update, hopefully it installs OK.

    I think the app has to have a link to the EQ. I know spotify has one not sure about Slacker.

    Another thing to note with doze: Active Display will not interrupt doze. The only time that Doze fully cuts out is when the phone is moved in any way. Waving your hand over the display will not turn off doze, nor will doze shut off when a notification comes in and the display kicks in.

    I've also seen some times when my phone is sitting on the desk and the notification comes in I can press on the icon to get the preview and Doze still keeps going unless I unlock the phone or move it enough.
    How do you know Doze is still active? I had a Nexus 5 2013 with 6.0 and I have a Nexus 9 and I can't tell when Doze is active.
    Yes, I'm curious too. How does one know when Doze is active? It's like Heisenberg's Uncertainty Principle...once you check to see if Doze is engaged, you've modified the subject.

    Looks like that won't be an issue for this phone, I have the moto x pure (2015) on AT&T and just got a notification that 6.0 is available for my phone.

    My AT&T just got the notification, so it's official, Moto X Pure got MM on AT&T before the Nexus 6. That's crazy.

    Ah. Correct. They killed that prior to release of the XPE (but forgot to remove it from their marketing material LOL), so I tried Push Bullet thanks to a tip from another forum discussion about it.

    I might have to ask Santa to get me a subscription to their paid version. It really is a great app. Just priced too steep for my comfort.

    So far I am not impressed with MM and notice no improvements, but do notice:

    1. Connecting to a PC is more of a pain now
    2. The surprisingly good sound and EQ settings are gone
    3. Doze is still inferior to the iOS version (iOS device does not have to be still to work) for sleep mode. The power saving mode in Lollipop already basically covered this function when not plugged in.

    Each update appears to take away more than add: L took 15% to 20% of storage space for ART and MM has taken stuff too. I am not an Android fanboy (or anything else, really), so not blinded by Android's aura of light Hopefully Star Wars will not fall to the same hype

    I am looking forward to all the sugar pill induced "battery life is 50% to 100% better" posts though!

    The global settings were key. I do not use Play Music since find it intrusive and inferior to PowerAmp. Plus, I only use Amazon for MP3 downloads since are not device restricted like iTunes or Play. No global settings means any app you use must have EQ settings or the speakers and headphone out sounds flat. That is my experience so far.

    PowerAmp has both audio gain and EQ settings. It is all the other apps I use that are out of luck due to Moto's WTH omission here.

    On Lollipop, Play Music just opened the global equalizer when you chose that option, what's it opening in Marshmallow?

    I got the update. I don't think it had anything to do with carriers. I suspect it was regional. I have AT&T, and the OTA showed up with my SIM in my device. Optimizing apps now.

    I'm on Straight talk using AT&T sim. I got the update notification today. After reading the features of the update, I think I'll pass for now. I just got my phone set up and need nothing further at this time but a custom rom..hehe

    Looks the same when you open it from play music.

    So you open from inside play music, but maybe it will still change global equalizer settings?

    It was a carrier thing though. David Schuster updated his post to add:

    UPDATE: I am happy to report that we are continuing the full deployment of Android Marshmallow 6.0 upgrade on 2015 Moto X Pure Edition (3rd Gen) on AT&T and for 2015 Moto X Style for Latin American retail.

    Haven't had a chance to test it but, yeah, that's what it looks like.
