Verizon Wireless announced the rollout yesterday and today they being to deliver Android Marshmallow to the LG V10 handsets on its network. Although this premium smartphone arrived in October 2015, it launched loaded with Android 5.1.1 Lollipop. Now, its users will go straight to Android Marshmallow and will be able to experience all the improvements provided by this major update to Google's mobile operating system.

According to the official software update page, the new firmware carries version VS99022A and "improves your mobile experience with new battery-smart features and enhanced app permissions that give you even more control." As everyone should know by now, Android Marshmallow comes with significant changes, including Google Now on Tap, Doze mode, granular app permissions, advanced notification controls, and more.

Since this is an OTA update, not all LG V10 handsets on Verizon Wireless will get it at once. Those in a hurry can check for it manually via Settings>About phone>Software updates>Check for update.

Although I have been writing about new software and hardware for almost a decade, I consider myself to be old school. I always enjoy listening to music on CD or tape instead of digital files and I will not even get into the touchscreen vs physical keys debate. However, I also enjoy new technology, as I now have the chance to take a look at the future every day. I joined the Notebookcheck crew back in 2013 and I have no plans to leave the ship anytime soon.
