Samsung Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge get Marshmallow on Verizon

Verizon Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge and Galaxy S6 Android flagships get Marshmallow

These two flagships are finally receiving the Marshmallow update on Verizon.

Samsung released the Android Marshmallow update to carriers more than a month ago, so it seems Verizon Wireless took a while to tweak and test the firmware for the Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge on its network. Fortunately, everything is finally ready and Verizon has started to deploy Android 6.0 to the Galaxy S6/S6 Edge.

The Big Red has updated the support pages for both flagships, but there are no surprises. As everyone already knows, Android 6.0 Marshmallow comes with Google Now on Tap contextual search, Doze mode for improved battery life, granular app permissions, as well as many minor tweaks and fixes. The latest security updates are also included. On the other hand, Samsung updated its TouchWiz UI to match the visual changes delivered by Marshmallow, including the new notification panel and the Web browser with an integrated ad blocker.

At last, we should also recall that Galaxy S6 Edge receives multiple options for customizing the edge panel. The update has begun its rollout earlier today, but those in a hurry can always perform a manual check in Settings>About device instead of waiting for the OTA notification.

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.
