The much awaited Samsung Galaxy Note 5 and HTC One M8 Marshmallow update for Verizon users is finally here. Samsung and HTC devices started receiving this update quite sometimes back, but due to delays usually associated with wireless carriers, the new Android 6.0 Marshmallow update had yet to hit devices using this network.
Nonetheless, the good news is that the Marshmallow update is finally here. For Galaxy Note 5 users, this has been coming ever since Samsung Galaxy S6 users begun receiving the update. However, as far as HTC One M8 Marshmallow update is concerned, it is possible that this might be the last major OS upgrade for this device considering that it is will be over two years old when Android N comes around. So, if you are using this smartphone, this is your last chance to upgrade to a better OS that has enhanced capabilities and great features.
HTC One M8 Marshmallow update now rolling out on Verizon and T-Mobile
Starting this Monday 7, HTC One M8 owners can start updating their smartphones to the latest Android 6.0 Marshmallow OS. The two-year old smartphone will receive all goodies that come along with the new OS, among them Google Now on Tap that eases the process of accessing helpful information, the battery saving feature known as Doze as well as new app permissions that make the system quite user friendlier than before.
The new HTC One M8 Marshmallow update also brings some changes to the Sense UI as well as performance improvements in general. Even though it might take some time before this update reaches all those using the One M8, Mo Versi, the Product Manager at HTC, said that those using the One M8 on Verizon and T-Mobile will have the Marshmallow update beginning today.
Verizon’s Samsung Galaxy Note 5 Marshmallow update
As mentioned earlier, Samsung Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge started receiving the OTA update a few weeks ago. However, some users are yet to receive the update due to issues related to carriers behind their devices. Samsung’s other devices released in 2015 – Galaxy Note 5 and Galaxy S6 Edge+ – have recently started receiving this OS, but only for unlocked versions and in limited locations.
If you use the Note 5 on Verizon Wireless, good luck for you as the American mobile carrier is now pushing the new Galaxy Note 5 Marshmallow update as we speak. The update takes the build number to MMB29K.N920VVRU2BPB2 and it comes along with a new version of TouchWiz UI, Internet 4.0 web browser as well as Cross App multitasking. Verizon will also be including its Wi-Fi Calling as well as YouTube Live features. AT&T and T-Mobile are expected to follow suit with their Galaxy Note 5 Marshmallow updates, but there is no specific date.
