More telecom companies have confirmed that they are rolling out Android Marshmallow updates for several Samsung devices. The network carriers T-Mobile, Sprint, AT&T, Verizon, and US Cellular are expected to release the Marshmallow update for Samsung Galaxy S6 and S6+. Owners of these devices can expect to enjoy the features of the updated Marshmallow OS soon.
In our last update about the Android Marshmallow updates for Samsung smartphones, it was reported that the Galaxy Note 5 is getting a second round of Marshmallow 6.0.1 updates in South Korea. Meanwhile, in North America, news is spreading that the Note 5, as well as the Note 4, Note Edge, Tab S2, and Tab S5 may directly jump to an update with Android N. But the network carriers Verizon and Telus have actually already started implementing the Marshmallow updates for the Galaxy Note 5. AT&T has also confirmed that they are in the testing phase and will roll out the Android update soon, while T-Mobile is expected to do the same soon.
In the meantime, Sprint and T-Mobile are busy implementing the Marshmallow updates for Samsung Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge. In Canada, Telus subscribers also got the update. Verizon, US Cellular, and AT&T are expected to follow suit.
As for the Samsung Galaxy S5, the network carriers Sprint, US Cellular, AT&T, and Verizon have not given a clear release date yet but it is expected that the Galaxy S5 will receive the Android Marshmallow update soon. On the other hand, T-Mobile has confirmed that it will roll out the Marshmallow update for the Samsung Galaxy S5, together with the Galaxy Note 4, Note Edge, and Tab S2, but the release date is also still not clear. However, it is predicted to happen sometime in March or April.
If you want to check if the Android update is already available for your device, you can wait for the OTA notification. When an upgrade is rolled out for a device, the upgrade download notification will appear on the screen of the device. But if you’re already too excited to get the latest Marshmallow OS, then you can check manually. Just go to Settings > About phone > System updates > Check for update.
Because other network carriers have not given clear announcements about the delay of the Android Marshmallow updates for several Samsung devices, it is rumored that they may jump directly to Android N. This could be good news for owners of such gadgets as they get to enjoy the latest OS after waiting to get updated to Marshmallow for quite some time now.
The Android OS Marshmallow is pretty similar to its predecessor, the Android Lollipop, in terms of design, and the navigation and notifications remain the same. One of the most distinguishable changes when updating to Marshmallow is that Google Now is clever than before. It looks the same, but it is pre-baked into every area of the operating system. Google Now is more focused on understanding the user in a better way rather than just being a digital assistant.
