With Android M on board, Samsung’s latest Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge have started receiving a new update to improve stability and touch capability. Following this, T-Mobile is now rolling out the Android 6.0 Marshmallow OTA update for Samsung Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge in the U.S.
The size of the downloadable file is 1.2 GB. Hence, Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge owners are advised to have a stable Wi-Fi connection prior to updating the devices. After installation, the Galaxy S6 should show the following software version “G920TUVU3EPD1,” while the Galaxy S6 Edge should read “G925TUVU3EPD1,” Phone Arena noted.
The Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow update will bring Doze Mode to the Galaxy S6 lineup, which helps in saving stand-by battery life. Google Now on Tap will also be available after installing the firmware and this feature brings contextual search based on the data displayed on the smartphone.
Furthermore, S6 owners will also get additional control over app permissions. Google has bundled a truckload of emojis in this software package. To top it off, T-Mobile and Samsung have also added some carrier and OEM-specific features, respectively. However, the changelogs are not very useful to ascertain the exact details, Phone Arena said.
Those Galaxy S6 owners who did not receive the Android 6.0 Marshmallow update-related notification, can navigate to Settings -> About device -> Software update and can manually check for updates.
Verizon, on the other hand, is rolling out the Android 6.0 Marshmallow update for Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge+. A minor Android update has been apparently rolled out to Samsung Galaxy Note 5 in order to fix the connectivity issues introduced because of the original Android 6.0 update sent out in March, GSM Arena noted.
Speaking of Galaxy Note 4, SamMobile reported that the Marshmallow update has been rolled out to model N910C, which is the Exynos-based Note version. When it comes to carriers, only Sprint has updated the Note 4 in the U.S. However, most carriers are expected to follow suit very soon.
