On another tweet, Mo Versi has declared that the T-Mobile variant of the HTC One M8 will be getting the taste of Marshmallow at the end of January. To be more specific, the Marshmallow update is executed to roll out in just one week from now.
Mo Versi who is the vice president of product management of HTC has declared that their aim for the Marshmallow release is 25 January 2016. In other words, HTC One M8 owners should be getting the update next week.
This is the next update for the One M8, going from Android 5.0.1 Lollipop to Android 6.0 Marshmallow. This is the second update for this phone after Lollipop and 4.4.2 KitKat. This update is valid for carrier-branded units only. Unlocked HTC One M8 devices have enjoyed Marshmallow since December of 2015.

The Marshmallow update is expected to bring a list of key changes and software enhancements.

Permissions: The permissions system has also changed. Now you get to choose what kind of permissions each app can access. You can decide if you want to allow or deny access to certain permissions. This is a key feature for improved security.
