Next to the usual Marshmallow features, the new firmware also comes with several changes to AT&T Services such as AT&T Locker and Ready2Go.

AT&T unleashed Android Marshmallow for the LG G Pad X 10.1 slates on its network last week. Strange enough, this tablet only receives Android 6.0 for now, so those eager to get new emojis, Do Not Disturb Mode, and the camera launch shortcut will not get them right now.

The new Android Marshmallow firmware update for AT&T's G G Pad X 10.1 comes with the usual features, as well as some AT&T exclusive ones. First, there are Doze mode, Google Now on Tap, granular app permissions, multiple tweaks and fixes, as well as the latest security updates. At last, there are these changes to AT&T Services:

  • AT&T Locker was updated to version 2.0
  • Keeper and the Kindle app have been removed
  • Ready2Go has been replaced with Setup & Transfer
  • AT&T Messages, DirectTV VPL, and myAT&T have been added

If the OTA notification has not appeared yet, those in a hurry can manually check for the update by simply going to Settings > About tablet > Update Center > Software update > Update Now. The update has around 900 MB in size, so be sure to have enough free space available before updating.

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.
