Sprint LG G4 gets Android Marshmallow update
LG G4 got Android Marshmallow back in mid-September, but it looks like Sprint did not rush it. Owners of this carrier-branded flagship finally got Android 6.0 last week.
While this update appears on Sprint's support pages, there is no official changelog available. Obviously, it contains all the changes that other LG G4 handsets get as well, except the Sprint-exclusive feature known as "Sprint Global Roaming." The new software version is LS991ZV9, and the "regular" changes should include the following:
- more secure Knock Code
- enhanced App Permissions
- Silent Mode added to the sound profile
- "Interruptions" is now "Do Not Disturb"
- Allow Peeking - notifications on top of the screen
- QMemo+ renamed to Capture+
In addition to the above, the Android 6.0 Marshmallow update for LG G4 handsets on Sprint also includes Doze battery saving, as well as multiple security patches, minor tweaks and improvements. Since this is an OTA update that rolls out in stages, those who did not get the notification yet should do a manual check or try to use the LG software update tool.
