I believe apps like; Amazon, Facebook, Twitter, ebay, Next Radio or similar. Basically, commonly used apps.
However, in future versions, HTC has taken a new approach and has decided to go with a more Pure version of Android. Meaning, they won;t be installing any of these default apps. They won;t even be installing their browser and messaging apps and instead be using the default android Chrome and Google Messaging to stay as well as other Google specific apps that they may have replaced. Only changes they will make will be the Skin being Sense.
In fact, I believe (from what I've read) when Marshmallow comes out for the M8, which it will, and you do a hard reset after installing, you will find that these apps aren't installed any more by default.
You should have or will shortly will get a Preliminary Software update, I did last night, for Marsh Mallow preparation. My guess is Marsh Mallow will install after that or not long after.
Did you get the Preliminary Update yet?
Yes I got that update but nothing after that. I just wanted to make sure that everyone is getting the same thing. Just the prep update. I did not get the marshmallow update yet
i havent even received it on the M9 yet. they seem to be a tad bit behind
I have been searching and found that last night MoVersi tweeted that the US versions of the M8, M9 and A9 should be receiving in next 24 hrs. So My guess is you might see something tonight.
i thought the A9 already came with it? i remember one of the PA's talking about some changes to app permissions and whatnot with MM.
quite possible. new devices are always running into newly released issues lol.
