samsung galaxy tab s2 8 3

Update, July 19: The T-Mobile version of the Galaxy Tab S2 is joining the AT&T model in the Marshmallow club. The 1022MB update will upgrade the Tab S2 to firmware version T817TUVU2BPF1.

Original post, July 17: Carrier-branded devices always take a while to get their updates, so it wasn’t a surprise to see the WiFi-only Samsung Galaxy Tab S2 get Android Marshmallow before AT&T’s. But things were a bit more annoying in this case because Verizon beat them by well over a month!

Don’t you worry, though, it is time for AT&T Samsung Galaxy Tab S2 users to celebrate, as the update to Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow is now rolling out. All eyes are on Android Nougat as we approach the end of the year, but there is a lot to get from Marshmallow. Improvements include granular permissions, Google Now on Tap, adaptable storage, Doze mode and more. The update also comes with some device-specific improvements, such as the ability to make regular voice calls.

You can learn all about these capabilities in our Android 6.0 Marshmallow features post. As for the update process, just be prepared with enough battery and a WiFi connection, because it weighs about 1 GB.
