Samsung unleashed the Android Marshmallow update for the Galaxy Tab A 9.7 tablets last month, and now the time has come for the smaller Galaxy Tab A 8.0. The long-awaited firmware targets all WiFi variants of this slate and has just begun its rollout across Australia.

The new firmware for the Samsung Galaxy Tab A 8.0 has about 1.1 GB in size, and its changelog includes the following:

  • Android 6.0 Marshmallow (featuring Google Now on Tap, Doze mode, granular app permissions, new emojis, multiple tweaks and fixes)
  • full support for fingerprint scanning/Samsung Pay
  • improved TouchWiz UI
  • the latest security updates
  • redesigned App Drawer

The update rolls out via OTA as usual, but those who did not get the notification yet and are in a hurry can simply go to Settings > About Device > Software Update > Update Now and sit back for a while until the process is complete. However, users of this slate located in other areas of the world might have to wait a few days until the new firmware reaches their region as well.

In my early school days, I hated writing and having to make up stories. A decade later, I started to enjoy it. Since then, I published a few offline articles and then I moved to the online space, where I contributed to major websites that are still present online as of 2021 such as Softpedia, Brothersoft, Download3000, but I also wrote for multiple blogs that have disappeared over the years. I've been riding with the Notebookcheck crew since 2013 and I am not planning to leave it anytime soon. In love with good mechanical keyboards, vinyl and tape sound, but also smartphones, streaming services, and digital art.
