Verizon Galaxy S5 gets Android Marshmallow
Although Android Marshmallow will become obsolete in just a few months, there are still handsets fully capable of running it that did not get the update yet. Until this week, Verizon Wireless' Samsung Galaxy S5 was one of them. Fortunately, this flagship that launched back in 2014 now gets Android 6.0 from the US carrier, less than one week after T-Mobile, but almost two months after Sprint.
Samsung Galaxy S5 on Verizon Wireless gets the same new features and improvements to its operating system as its variants on other carriers - Google Now on Tap, Doze mode, granular app permissions, WiFi calling, UHQA HiFi audio, new emojis, as well as the usual fixes, tweaks, and the latest security updates. According to Verizon, this update also comes with full support for Android for Work.
The software version of the update is MMB29M.G900VVRU2DPD1. The firmware rolls out via OTA as usual, and those who did not get the notification yet can check manually as usual - Settings>About Device>Check for Updates.
