Not so many flagship owners are still waiting for the release of Android Marshmallow, instead, they are looking out for when their respective companies will start rolling out the new Android 7.0 Nougat.
Android Marshmallow is almost a year old while Android Nougat is the latest dessert in town. Still, those using Samsung Galaxy Note Edge and the flat-screen Samsung Galaxy Note 4 on AT&T are yet to receive this update. This is despite the fact that Samsung started rolling out this update to these 2014 flagships a few months ago, with other major carriers in the U.S. already up to date.
Despite the long wait, AT&T has finally availed the Marshmallow update to the two handsets, meaning all those on the platform can now expect to see an OTA notification from the carrier with respect to the update. But being an over the air update, it will probably not reach all devices at the same time. So, don’t fret just in case you have seen any of your friends who is using the Galaxy Note 4 or Galaxy Note Edge on AT&T already using Android Marshmallow.
Many had probably given up on the Marshmallow update as far as AT&T’s Galaxy Note Edge and Galaxy Note 4 are concerned. However, you can now enjoy features like Google Now on Tap, Doze mode, better apps permissions as well as app standby – features that are not available on Android Lollipop. These features are exclusive to Google, but AT&T has also included a bunch of its own features with this Marshmallow update.
The likes of Wi-Fi calling and Video Calling features are now available after this update. It gets even better as Advanced Messaging services have also been added to the updated phones, meaning users of the Galaxy Note 4 and Note Edge will now be able to share high-quality images, longer videos as well as larger files. The new update also means that users of these devices will now be able to see whether a message is delivered to the intended recipient, when they read it as well as when they are onto it responding. Still, this will remain possible if both parties have devices that are compatible with Advanced Messaging.
Since it weighs about 1.3GB, make sure you are connected to the internet via a Wi-Fi source. Also ensure that your battery is half full or connect it to a power source during the update process. If you haven’t seen the OTA notification yet, go to Settings>About Phone>Software Updates>Check for Updates>Update Now. This will scan for the availability of the Marshmallow package for your device and let you install it manually.
