Today, Verizon is rolling out Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow update to its Samsung Galaxy S5 customers. This update carries a firmware version G900VVRU2DPD1 and comes with features like Wi-Fi calling, Ultra High-Quality Audio, new TouchWiz skins and new app icons along with the usual Marshmallow features like Doze, Google Now on Tap, and better control over permissions for apps.

If you have a Galaxy S5 on Verizon then you can download the update via over-the-air now. Please remember that the update is being rolled out in batches and it may take a few days for all of Verizon’s Galaxy S5 units to receive the Marshmallow update in that fashion.

Since downloading software via a mobile network may result in additional charges, it is better for you to use a Wi-Fi connection when downloading software updates. You have to remember that firmware updates require at least 3GB of free space in your phone and also make sure that your battery is fully charged or at least 70% so that your phone will not turn off while downloading or updating software.
