What started as a rumor is finally the real thing - Android Marshmallow is now available as a firmware update for the Samsung Galaxy Tab S. The first generation of the Galaxy Tab S family was released more than two years ago, loaded with Android KitKat, so this is most likely the final official update.

Verizon Wireless has unleashed a new firmware with all the Marshmallow goodies (Google Now on Tap, Doze mode, granular app permissions, and so on), but has also decided to remove some of the bloatware that came with the tablet. The list of removed apps includes titles like VZ Navigator, WebEx, Amazon Music, Amazon Appstore, and e-Meeting.

The new firmware is delivered via OTA, so it will not reach all targeted slates at once. Those who did not get the update notification so far can simply go to Settings > About device > Software update > Check for updates and initiate the update process.

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.
