Verizon rolls out Marshmallow for the Galaxy Note 5
Galaxy Note 5 owners on Verizon, today is your lucky day.
The carrier has just begun rolling out Samsung’s latest Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow software, which packs TouchWiz improvements, new features like Doze and Google Now on Tap, and lots more.
Marshmallow first began making its way to the Galaxy Note 5 in mid-February, starting with unlocked handsets in select markets. Now carriers are beginning to approve it, and Verizon is one of the first to make the update available to its customers.
With Android 6.0.1, Galaxy Note 5 owners can look forward to Doze, which greatly improves battery life; Google Now on Tap; Google’s new app permissions system; and a bunch of new emoji. There is also a long list of improvements to TouchWiz and Samsung’s own apps.
This particular update comes with build number VRU2BPB2, and it’s available to download over-the-air. If you haven’t already received a notification, you can see it’s available to your device manually from within the software update section of the Settings app.
Bear in mind, however, that it might take a few days to reach all users.
