Verizon has announced that they are rolling out Android 6.0 Marshmallow update to Galaxy S6 edge+ handsets. In addition, Verizon is also pushing out an update to Galaxy Note 5 that will address some connectivity issues.

This software update brings the latest Android Marshmallow OS along with improvements to Live broadcast and Edge panel, easier app searches and updates to the Notification panel.

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.
Google has released Android 6.0 Marshmallow last year but it has yet to arrive for a lot of devices, particularly those that are locked to carriers. Even as Google gears up to launch the next big Android update in the coming weeks, carriers and OEMs are still scrambling to get Marshmallow out the door as users get anxious. At least Verizon users for Galaxy S6 edge+ can have some peace, as the carrier is finally releasing update to their handset.
