Nexus 5 Android 6.0 Update Roll Out
If you've owned the Nexus 5 for awhile, then you probably know what to expect from Google and its Android Marshmallow roll out. If you're new to the Nexus 5 and Android, here is what you can expect from Android 6.0's roll out:
Step 1. Google releases the Nexus 5 Android 6.0 factory images into AOSP.
Step 2. Soon after this release into AOSP, the Nexus 5 Android 6.0 update should start rolling out Over-the-Air.
Step 3. The file should get discovered on Google’s servers which will allow Nexus 5 users to sideload the software ahead of the OTA.
Step 4. Google’s OTA roll outs typically take one to two weeks while Google monitors it for issues. Android Marshmallow is a major update so we'd expect it to start off slow before pushing out with greater frequency after a few days.
The key takeaway is that you probably won't see the Nexus 5 Android Marshmallow update on its first release day. Only a small batch of Nexus 5 users will see the update that day. You'll want to stay patient.
