The European Marshmallow update has finally begun for the Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge. T-Mobile Poland tweeted to say the update was coming a couple of days ago and the first OTA updates are arriving as we speak. South Korean Galaxy owners only got the update two weeks ago, so things are moving quickly.

As always in Europe, new Samsung firmware is typically soak-tested in either Poland or the Baltic states before rolling out to the larger Western European countries. Fortunately if you’re in Europe, you can simply grab the relevant unlocked firmware and flash it on your international S6 or S6 Edge rather than wait for the update to arrive in your country.

Here's the Galaxy S6 Android 6.0 Marshmallow update changelog which also holds for the S6 Edge:

  • Exercise greater control over app permissions
  • Purchase easily and securely with Fingerprint support
  • Experience enhanced battery-life through Doze
  • Redesigned App Drawer

To check for the update, go to Settings > About phone > System updates > Check for updates. If you think it might be a little while before you see Marshmallow touch down on your Galaxy device, take a look at Nirave's video above of the update to see what's coming.

When do you think you'll see Marshmallow? What do you think of the changes?
