It’s been a long wait for the users of Samsung devices, and they are finally getting the much-awaited update to Android Marshmallow 6.0. After waiting for several months, the Samsung Note Edge is going to be the first device where Samsung will roll out the Android Marshmallow 6.0.
Samsung had already released a map of the roll out process and this time, it is the turn for Galaxy Edge. Galaxy Note Edge in Europe and Canada are also receiving the updates soon enough.
Tech Radar reported that Samsung Galaxy Edge is going to get an upgrade, which has a size of 1GB and it is going to get the update after devices like the Galaxy Note 4, Galaxy S5, Galaxy S6 Edge and the Galaxy S6. These were the Samsung devices that were operating without the latest Android version.
The users of Galaxy Note 5 will get an update in the US and so will the users of Galaxy S6 Active. There is good news for the users of Galaxy Tablets as well since they are going to get the updated Android Marshmallow 6.0 soon enough.
However, only the Tab S6’s 8 inches and 9.7 inches’ variant is going to be getting the update. There is still no update on whether the users of Galaxy Note Pro 12.2 and Galaxy Tab S will be able to use the Android Marshmallow 6.0.
The July security update from Google are being updated in the Nexus and Samsung has started delivering the same in their Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 Edge. The update for the same that T-Mobile has launched is around 300MB. Galaxy Note 5 and Galaxy S6 Edge are also getting the monthly updates in the same manner.
There isn’t much difference when it comes to the look of Android Marshmallow 6.0 for those who were using the Android Lollipop. However, there are quite a few changes in the features that the users will be able to discover as and when they use their device. One of the first feature that the users will notice is the Google Now on Tap. This allows the users to look up for information quickly.
The Google Now on Tap can be activated by holding down the home button. The other feature that is going to make the phone usage easier is the one concerning the battery saving feature. The Doze is a new feature that enables the device to maximize battery consumption to prolong the battery life of the phone.
Smart devices have always received flak because of their battery life, but this feature will solve the issue to a large extent. Android Marshmallow 6.0 also has the app standby option, which helps to further maximize battery life.
There is a change in the way the apps have been placed in the app tray in Android Marshmallow 6.0. Instead of the multiple pages, the app drawer organizes the apps vertically. This makes the apps easier to locate and makes the phone more user-friendly.
While the app drawer pleases, there is going to be one feature that might annoy the users. The Android Marshmallow 6.0 requires permission to access by every app. The users will have to give the apps permission to use the different functions and features of the phone.
