Although the first Android N handsets might launch by the end of the summer, there are still a few well-known devices that need to receive the Marshmallow update. The Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge on AT&T are two handsets that were not updated so far, but the wait is finally over.

According to a post by ATTMobilityCare that was published on the carrier's Community Forums yesterday, "As of 5/17/2016, Android Marshmallow has been released for the Samsung S6 & S6 Edge!" and the changes include the following:

  • Android 6.0 Marshmallow update
  • Inclusion of the Video Calling feature
  • Removal of Keeper, AT&T Live, and FB Messenger
  • Amazon added to full preload
  • AT&T Mail and YP Mobile moved to a Virtual Preload

The Marshmallow changes include the usual - Google Now on Tap, Doze mode, granular app permissions, new emojis, as well as the usual tweaks, fixes, and the latest security updates. The Galaxy S6 devices also receive a revamped TouchWiz interface and improvements to the edge panel features of the S6 Edge.

The update has a size of 1.5 GB and comes via OTA. As usual, those who did not get the notification yet can check manually via System Settings > System Updates > Check for new system update.

In my early school days, I hated writing and having to make up stories. A decade later, I started to enjoy it. Since then, I published a few offline articles and then I moved to the online space, where I contributed to major websites that are still present online as of 2021 such as Softpedia, Brothersoft, Download3000, but I also wrote for multiple blogs that have disappeared over the years. I've been riding with the Notebookcheck crew since 2013 and I am not planning to leave it anytime soon. In love with good mechanical keyboards, vinyl and tape sound, but also smartphones, streaming services, and digital art.
