Android 6.0 Marshmallow rolling out to Verizon's Galaxy Note 4, Galaxy Tab S2
Verizon has (quite surprisingly) been rolling out a good amount of updates to its Android devices as of late. Recently we’ve seen the Galaxy S5, Droid Maxx 2 and a few other handsets on Verizon receive updates to the latest version of Android, and today two more are joining the party. Verizon is now rolling out Android 6.0 Marshmallow to its Samsung Galaxy Note 4 and Galaxy Tab S2 devices.
Starting with the Galaxy Note 4, this new software update will bring the device’s software version to MMB29M.N910VVRU2CPD1. Not only will the headline features of Marshmallow make their way to the device, Verizon has thrown in a few other enhancements such as Wi-Fi calling, a new app icon and folder design, Android for Work, as well as Ultra-High-Quality Audio- UHQA (Hi-Fi Audio) mode. Also, Amazon Music will no longer be preinstalled on the device after this update. Hooray for less bloatware!

Of course, both of these Samsung devices will be getting all of the standard Marshmallowy features you’d expect, such as Google Now on Tap, Doze mode, application permissions and much more.
Since the jump up to Marshmallow will be pretty sizable in both cases, you’ll want to make sure you’re on a steady Wi-Fi connection and that your battery has sufficient charge. It’s also worth noting that these updates might not reach your device for a few days, so don’t worry if the update isn’t available for your device yet.
