While the final release of Android N is likely not too far off now, there are still a number of devices that haven’t even made the jump over to Marshmallow. Among these neglected flagships are the AT&T version of the Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge, but thankfully the wait is finally over.
Starting today, both the S6 and its edgier (literally) brother are getting Android 6.0. While many other carriers have already received the update weeks ago, including Verizon and Sprint, it’s better to be late than never. The OTA weighs in at 1.5GB and brings with it all the Marshmallow goodies you’d expect including Google Now on Tap, Doze power management, improved permissions control, and more. There’s also several Sammy-specific changes including TouchWiz’s new look and a revamped notification panel. There’s also improvements to the edge panel functionality for the S6 Edge, which is a nice little bonus.
As with all carrier roll outs, the update will hit in stages, though a great number of folks have already successfully reported pulling down the update. When in doubt, you can always try to manually download the update by heading to Settings > About device.
Have you received your update yet? If so, how smoothly did everything go?
