Samsung isn’t one of the companies that provide Android updates very fast, but surprisingly, the Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow Beta came quick for the Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge. This beta update started rolling out today, after yesterday, these smartphones started receiving the Android 6.0 Marshmallow update. If you own one of these devices and want to install the latest beta update of Android Marshmallow, you should expect to notice many changes, as the Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow Beta has many interesting additions.
Android 6.0 Marshmallow came in October 2015, being introduced on the Nexus 5X and 6P, then the update rolled out to older Nexuses and latest flagships from the most known manufacturers. The Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge were included on the list to be upgraded to Android 6.0 Marshmallow, but now Samsung is rolling out the Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow Beta, and it has a very large change-log.
We’ll start with the new emoji characters, new Quick Settings toggles for Private Mode and the notification panel icons are more visible. Another change is the vibration that the device will make when the fingerprint sensor won’t recognize the fingerprint of the person who will try to unlock the phone.
The users will see a new Install overnight feature which will prevent the phone from installing updates during the day, when the user is very active and doesn’t want to be interrupted by annoying installations. These updates will be installed at night, preferable between 2 AM to 5 AM.
Also, the Edge screen settings will get a new interface, the Edge screen panels will be enabled and disabled using the new Edge panels options. Also, the users can customize the size and transparency of the Edge panel, shortcuts can be created inside applications, supporting functions such as adding new contacts, composing emails, messages etc., and this can be done thanks to the new Tasks edge panel. There are many other things the users are now allowed to do, such as muting all sounds when they don’t want to be disturbed, because they’re at work, or when they’re commuting, the phone can be put on the power saving mode.
If you’ve upgraded your smartphone to Android 6.0 Marshmallow beta, then you’re able to install the Android 6.0.1 and this can be done by going to Settings > About device > Software update.
