The Galaxy Tab A 8.0 isn’t the only tablet getting the update to Android Marshmallow right now. The AT&T LG G Pad X 10.1 is also on the update list, although it is getting the bump to Android 6.0, not 6.0.1 (which pretty must just adds new emoji, a camera launch shortcut and Do Not Disturb Mode).
The Android 6.0 Marshmallow update for the G Pad X comes in at close to 900 MB, so make sure you’ve got plenty of internal storage available and ensure you have sufficient battery life for the download and install procedure.
Apart from the obvious Marshmallow benefits, the update changelog also lists several changes to AT&T Services: AT&T Locker has been updated to version 2.0; Keeper has been removed; the myAT&T app has been added – along with AT&T Messages and DirecTV VPL; the Kindle app has been removed; and Ready2Go has been replaced with Setup & Transfer.
As always, you can wait for the OTA notification to appear or you can manually check for the update by going to Settings > About tablet > Update center > Software update > Update now.
