Verizon started rolling out the 6.0 Marshmallow update for the LG V10 device, which was released in September 2015 with Android 5.1.1 Lollipop out of the box. Other carriers such as AT&T and T-Mobile will come up with this update a little bit later, but they haven’t given an exact date. The Galaxy S6 Edge+, on the other hand, is getting the 6.0.1 Marshmallow update for the SM-G928GZSA model in India and France.
Verizon has confirmed the 6.0 Marshmallow will roll out to the LG V10 over the air, and it will come with “new battery-smart features and enhanced app permissions that give you even more control”, and the Now on Tap feature will anticipate what you need when looking at something on your phone’s screen and will provide you useful information via cards, as well as and applications that you’d like to install. Doze is a mode that restricts applications’ access to network when the screen is off, and this will extend the battery life.
Also, you have the possibility to decide which parts of your device should be shared with an application, permitting them to use the microphone, location, camera etc. Also, you can use the fingerprint scanner for advanced security. In case you won’t receive the notification for the availability of the update, you can manually check for the software by going to Settings > About Phone > Software updates > Check for Update. Before downloading the update, which is around 1GB in size, connect to a wireless network.
As for the Galaxy S6 Edge+, this flagship started receiving the Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow update in India and France, according to a report from Mobipicker. The update is 1.3GB in size and is available over the air, as well, but Samsung hasn’t provided a change log for it. Most likely, the Tasks edge panel that was introduced in the 6.0 Marshmallow update for the Galaxy S6 Edge will be included in the update for the S6 Edge+.
This feature will allow you to tap on the shortcuts to often used applications and you’ll be able to easily create an event in S Planner, or set an alarm, compose a text message etc.
