Verizon Releases Marshmallow Update for HTC One M9

Owners of the HTC One M9 on Verizon are now starting to see the Android Marshmallow update roll to their devices.  The updated software is version 3.37.605.7 in Verizon numbering convention and brings the M9 up to Android Marshmallow 6.0.  If you remember, HTC rolled out the Marshmallow 6.0 update to the unlocked variant of the M9 back in December.  Those devices have subsequently been further updated to Marshmallow 6.0.1 so yes, this update from Verizon is behind in security updates and features.  Still, it’s here at that is very much a positive sign.

You can manually check for the update by going to Settings>About Phone but doing so does not mean you will get it a that time.

In the software update notification on the Verizon site, there is nothing specific that the carrier is adding to the build like other carriers have done.
