This update brings WiFi Calling to HD Voice users, Live Broadcast improvements, removal of the Amazon Appstore, and more.

Back in early 2015, Verizon Wireless was the first US carrier to update the Samsung Galaxy S5 phablet on its network to Android 5.0 Lollipop. However, they had to cancel the initial update due to some issues. Obviously, they released Lollipop for this handset at a later time. Now, they become the first US carrier to launch Android Marshmallow for the Samsung Galaxy Note 5 (SM-N920).

According to Verizon Wireless' official support page, Galaxy Note 5 gets an update based on Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow which brings the software version to VRU2BPB2 and the build number to MMB29K. The common features of this update include more than 200 new emojis, Google Now on Tap, Doze mode and detailed battery stats, customizable permissions, and more. The Verizon-exclusive features include support for WiFi Calling and Live Broadcast improvements. The Amazon Appstore is removed by this update, and the interface gains "a fresh look and design" thanks to new icon and folder designs.

In addition to the above, the update also packs the latest security patches and multiple minor tweaks and fixes. Those who did not the notification yet can check for it manually as usual, via System Settings > System Updates > Check for new system update.
