It’s 2016 and many Samsung Galaxy smartphone and tablet owners are still waiting for their Android Marshmallow update.

It’s been more than four months since Google started rolling out its brand new Android Marshmallow 6.0 OS.

Some manufacturers were quick to release the new update and its changes. Others, like Samsung, have been extremely slow to release the Android Marshmallow 6.0.1 update.

In February, Samsung finally took a step in the right direction and we finally have update for multiple devices.




Samsung hasn’t confirmed every single Marshmallow update it plans to offer but the roundup includes information about the Samsung’s Galaxy S6, the Galaxy Note 5, the Galaxy Note 4, the Galaxy S7, and more.

The Galaxy S6 Android Marshmallow 6.0.1 update is rolling out for the Galaxy S6, Galaxy S6 Edge and Galaxy S6 Edge Plus in Korea. We’ve also seen a number of other Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge Marshmallow updates roll out around the world.

Android Marshmallow updates have also started rolling out in Indiathe United Kingdom, Austria, Russia, Iraq and the Netherlands. More recently, updates have landed for models in Afghanistan, Croatia, Germany, Czech Republic, Nigeria, Pakistan, Italy, Macedonia, Spain, and a whole lot more more.




Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow update recently made it to North America with Sprint users reporting the start of an Android Marshmallow 6.0.1 roll out for the Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge. Sprint’s also now rolling out an update for the Galaxy S6 Edge Plus.

The Sprint bound Samsung Galaxy S6 Marshmallow updates are huge, over 1GB in size, and it delivers a long list of enhancements, features, and bug fixes.

Sprint is now joined by Verizon. Big Red’s confirmed plans to roll out its Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow updates.

Like Sprint’s updates, the Verizon Galaxy S6 Marshmallow updates bring a wealth of new features, enhancements and fixes. Verizon customers will want to keep an eye open for the OTA. It should hit most devices in April.

Now that these updates are making their way to United States, Asia, Europe and the Middle East, we expect more Galaxy S6 Marshmallow updates to follow.




T-Mobile has confirmed a trio of Galaxy S6 Marshmallow updates and we expect rival carriers in the United States to follow suit with roll outs of their own.

T-Mobile’s planning Android Marshmallow updates for the Galaxy S6, Galaxy S6 Edge and the Galaxy S6 Edge+. Two of these updates, for the Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge, have moved beyond the “Manufacturer Development” stage into the “T-Mobile Testing” phase meaning they’re getting closer.

T-Mobile’s Galaxy S6 Edge Plus Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow update is still in the “Manufacturer Development” phase.

Samsung is reportedly planning Galaxy S6 updates for AT&T (we saw a date pop up for the Galaxy S6 though it came and went without an official release) but release date details about those updates are still missing in action.

Vocal carriers like Rogers (Canada), Vodafone (Australia), Optus (Australia), and Telstra (Australia) continue to remain silent about their plans for the Samsung Galaxy S6 and Marshmallow.

Samsung will be rolling out Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow, the most up-to-date version of Marshmallow from Google.
