The 1.5 GB firmware update finally brings Android 6.0 to the Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge on AT&T, next to various minor improvements, fixes, and a revamped TouchWiz interface.

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.

Although I have been writing about new software and hardware for almost a decade, I consider myself to be old school. I always enjoy listening to music on CD or tape instead of digital files and I will not even get into the touchscreen vs physical keys debate. However, I also enjoy new technology, as I now have the chance to take a look at the future every day. I joined the Notebookcheck crew back in 2013 and I have no plans to leave the ship anytime soon.
