Google if he bought it from Motorola, or Google.


If he got it from T-Mobile then it will be Google from my understanding


Sprint, Verizon, and AT&T with the way Google words their policies will be their respective carriers.

Mine works on AT&T, because I refuse to support a company that does not

offer what I want to purchase.

Google handles all updates, but they allow the carrier to determine when

their phones will recieve the update. This appears to be done based on the

Sim Card in the Nexus 6.

So, it doesn't matter where you purchase your Nexus 6, if you use a Verizon

Sim then Verizon has a say in when your phone gets updated.

Google doesn't hand all the update.  Google changed their policies.

Technically, it's from the manufacturer, and/or Google.

Here's the text of their update policy.

"Nexus 4, Nexus 5, Nexus 6, Nexus 7, Nexus 9, and Nexus 10 devices receive

the latest version of Android directly from Google. Once an update is

available, it can take up to two weeks for it to reach your device. Based

on your carrier, it may take longer than two weeks after release to get an

update."

"Updates to Google Play edition devices are managed by the device

manufacturers, not by Google. Google works closely with the manufacturers

to provide system updates shortly after a new version is released. Once an

update is available, it can take up to two weeks for it to reach your

device. Based on your carrier, it may take longer than two weeks after

release to get an update."

It's never from the carrier, but based on your carrier it can take longer.

It doesn't matter if you purchased it from Google, Motorola, or Verizon,

Verizon gets a say in when your Nexus phone gets updated.

Nope. I no longer have an account with Verizon. I took my business

elsewhere.

There's a REASON  why it takes longer based on your carrier... If you can't figure out why I am sorry. If Google did everything and pushed the updates they wouldn't need that.

Best of luck to you.

Google says they provide the updates, and you have proof that they are

lying?

Furthermore, Google Play Editions can not be purchased through the carrier.

They can only be purchased through Google's Play Store.

The updates to Google Play Editions can be delayed based on carrier.
