This week, Verizon Wireless unleashed what might be the last Android Marshmallow-based firmware update for the Galaxy S7 and the Galaxy S7 Edge. Although not a major update, the new software brings FM radio support to the handsets, as well as improved voice calling capabilities.
According to the official update page, "This software update provides HD Voice performance improvements, and new Galaxy features, such as support for NextRadio and Barcode Beaming for UPC codes." The new software versions are MMB29M.G930VVRU2APG5 for the Galaxy S7 and MMB29M.G935VVRU2APG5 for the Galaxy S7 Edge. The fixes included in this update cover HD voice call drops and unintentional device restarts, next to various other issues.
Verizon Wireless is not the first US carrier to enable FM radio on the Galaxy S7 flagships, but even as late as it is, some users will surely appreciate it. As usual, the update rolls out via OTA, and those who did not get the notification yet can check manually via Settings > About device > Software update > Check for updates.
