T-Mobile Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge receiving Advanced Messaging and video calling in new update
If you’re the owner of a Samsung Galaxy S6 or Galaxy S6 Edge on T-Mobile, a software update should be headed your way sometime soon. Coming in at around 406MB and 413MB respectively, the updates rolling out to the S6 and S6 Edge will bring the software versions up to G920TUVU2DOH6 and G925TUVU2DOH6.
In the updates, both devices are receiving T-Mobile’s new Advanced Messaging feature, as well as native video calling from within the dialer application. Announced back in July, Advanced Messaging brings a ton of enhancements to group messaging, MMS and more. To learn more about Advanced Messaging, head here for more information. T-Mobile just recently announced that it would soon roll out native video calling from within the dialer app on select Android phones. This will let you video chat with other T-Mobile users without the need to download a third-party application. Up until now, this new video calling feature was only available on the Galaxy Note 5 and Galaxy S6 Edge+, and now it’s rolling out to Samsung’s smaller devices as well.
