Telecommunications companies are validating people’s suspicions that they’ll be updating multiple Samsung devices with the Android Marshmallow update. Popular network carriers Verizon, AT&T, Sprint, US Cellular and T-Mobile will release the update for the Samsung Galaxy S6 and S6+ Device owners can see this update and partake in the features relatively soon.
It’s already been known that the update on Samsung smartphones would occur twice on the Galaxy Note 5… at least in South Korea. In North America, news is going around that the Note 5, Note 4, Note Edge, Tab S5 and Tab S2 may actually get an Android N update. Network carriers Telus and Verizon have started applying the Marshmallow update for the Galaxy Note 5. AT&T said it’s in the testing phase and is likely to roll the Android update out soon. T-Mobile is likely to do the same thing.
However, T-Mobile and Sprint are already working toward executing the Marshmallow updates on the Galaxy S6 and SG Edge. Telus subscribers (in Canada) are getting the update. AT&T, Verizon and US Cellular are predicted to soon offer the update.
When it comes to the Galaxy S5, AT&T, Verizon, Sprint and US Cellular have yet to announce a release date, but the expectation is soon. T-Mobile has, however, noted it would release the update for its Samsung phones but no clear release date there either. It’s thought it’ll happen in April.
Smartphone Galaxy and Note users can see if they have an Android update by checking their phone manually. They can go to Settings, About Phone, System Updates and Check for Update. Or, they can wait until they receive an OTA notification, which will appear on the device’s screen when it’s ready for download.
Since there’s not been a clear announcement from network carriers regarding the delay in the offering of the Marshmallow update, it’s thought they’ll use the Android N update instead. The news is good for smartphone owners who can use the latest OS, partaking in its fun.
The Marshmallow update has got similar characteristics to the Android Lollipop when it comes to design, notifications and navigation. However, the biggest update with Marshmallow is the Google Now app. While it looks similar, it’s offered in every part of the OS. Google Now is focused on the user – to understand them better. It’s no longer just a digital assistant.
