Samsung Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge get Marshmallow on Verizon

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.
