T-Mobile’s LG V10 smartphone will receive the Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow OTA update sometime this week.
T-Mobile’s Product Manager Des Smith tweeted the rollout information last Friday. Apart from T-Mobile, Verizon started sending out the Marshmallow goodness to LG V10 users in the U.S. recently. The international variants of V10, on the other hand, have already received the firmware update, Phone Arena noted.
The Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow update will offer a bunch of powerful features like Doze Mode, which helps in saving the stand-by battery life, along with Google Now on Tap option that allows contextual search based on the content displayed (or active) on the phone.
In addition, LG V10 owners will have more control over app permissions after they update to the latest firmware. Google has added support to a slew of impressive emojis in this software and there’s a good chance that the V10 will get the monthly Android security update along with the firmware.
Here is the tweet confirming the Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow update for LG V10:

Speaking of LG G4, carriers Verizon, AT&T and T-Mobile started rolling out the latest firmware across the globe last month. As always, carriers send out the updates in phases and hence, it might take a while before the updates reach all the eligible devices. Sprint and U.S. Cellular have already updated the G4 with the latest software.
Meanwhile, the LG G3 has been updated to Android 6.0 Marshmallow by Verizon, while other carriers are expected to roll out the update soon. The mid-range LG G Flex 2, LG G4 S and LG G3 S are eligible for Android 6.0 update. So far, the rollout date has not been announced.
The LG G2 from 2013 is technically not eligible for Android 6.0 Marshmallow update. But this device made a quiet visit to a benchmark test site with Marshmallow on board. This does not guarantee an official rollout. Nevertheless, it is a promising sign.
