These two flagships are finally ready for the Marshmallow update, but other Galaxy devices will follow soon as well, depending on location and carrier.

Samsung Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge got the beta version of Android Marshmallow about a month ago, and the final release has just become available.

The update began its rollout yesterday and, according to Samsung, the other Galaxy devices will get Android Marshmallow soon, depending on "market situation and carriers' requirements." This update improves the edge screen feature of the Galaxy S6 Edge, stretching it from 260 pixels to no less than 550, thus allowing users to add much more apps than before.

The regular Marshmallow features are also included in this update, including Google Now on Tap, app standby, Doze mode, improved permissions, fingerprint support, and more. This update can only help increase the market share of the latest major Android release, which currently controls less than 2 percent while Android 4.4 KitKat remains the most popular version, closely followed by Lollipop.

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.
