As promised, HTC and some its Canadian carrier partners have released the Android 6.0 update for the HTC One M9.

Customers of Rogers, Wind Mobile, Videotron and SaskTel can now pick up and roast some Marshmallow on their Snapdragon 810-powered One M9s. Those who purchased the device on other carriers such as Bell and Telus will have to wait a bit longer.

The update, though to Android 6.0 and not the newer emoji-filled 6.0.1, features important upgrades like Google Now on Tap and Doze, along with improvements to HTC’s camera app and general performance enhancements and bug fixes. Though the One M9 was heavily criticized for being too minor an upgrade over its predecessor, itself a problematic update over the One M7, the device still reportedly sold quite well across Canada.

To initiate the update, head to Settings/About/Software update. Most users will need to download a small interim bundle, around 130 megabytes in size, to prepare for the full 1.27 gigabyte Marshmallow payload.

Once updated, let us know how it works out for you.

    This is interesting that HTC is very proactive on releasing latest Android iOS while Samsung phones that are lower than S6 are still unsure if version 5.1.1 will be release let alone version 6.0. Good job Samsung!

      I think you a typo: “latest Android iOS”?

    • El Capitan Morgan

      LOL.. thank u for pointing that out.

      I am thinking both OS at the same time!!!!

    • southerndinner

      Not hard to do updates when you have two devices total, all 12 of their customers will be celebrating today

      In my experience Samsung Android updates in Canada always roll out in March.

    • El Capitan Morgan

      That is in Canada or US but what about the international version?

  • Victor Creed

    All this wait and it’s not even the latest version. Nexus or bust.

    “…the device still reportedly sold quite well across Canada.”

    It did? News to me…I thought it had actually been pulled early from shelves…?

      I can see why. I had to call around to get mine. There was 1 store with 10 of them available in the entire city. They were hidden in the back room and not on display.

      Employees at other locations were not aware of its existence.

    Cool. When it comes to wind I am wondering if anyone in that company verify the software? Probably nobody as that place run by clowns!

    • manpreet singh

    If you use Custom Roms they beat any manufacture to it, I have a Note 3 on Marshmallow and it not even officially supported by Samsung

  • max_l

    It’s actually working very well. The battery life is now much better with Marshmellow. Now wondering when they’ll release 6.0.1 with refreshed emojis.


    And yet the m8 still goes without… Hurry up telus and koodo. Get your stuff together!
