Verizon Releases Marshmallow Update For Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge

Verizon has started rolling out the Android Marshmallow update to customers who have the Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge on their network.  The updates will come to users as an OTA update and it could be several days before everyone sees it.  The updated version you are looking for on your device is build MMB29K.G920VVRU4CPC2 and that is the same build for either device.  This update is a big one, approaching 1GB in size, so you will have to make sure you are connected to Wi-Fi before the update will download.

The update of course brings all of the goodies that are in Marshmallow like Doze, improved app permissions and Google Now on Tap.  In addition, Verizon has added some software updates of

The release of this update by Verizon continues what has been a long string of Marshmallow updates from manufactures and carriers over the course of the last 6 weeks and for consumers, this is great to see as you are getting the latest version of Android with its improved features and security.
