AT&T updates Galaxy Note 4 and Galaxy Note edge to Android 6.0 Marshmallow
It's been quite the ride for AT&T customers who own the Galaxy Note 4 and the Note edge, as the carrier did not manage to roll out the Android 6.0 Marshmallow until this month.

The partnership between Samsung and AT&T, two companies that aren't known for their willingness to provide faster updates, led to a 1-year wait for Galaxy Note 4 and Note edge users.

But, as the saying goes, better late than never. AT&T has just announced that it has started to push Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow update for both phablets beginning today.

If you plan on upgrading, then you should know that Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow is quite a massive download at 1.3GB size for both devices. According to AT&T, both updates contain the August 1, 2016 security patch.

The carrier also confirmed that aside from the usual Marshmallow improvements and new features, it also added Video Calling, Advanced Messaging, as well as Wi-Fi Calling.

As always, it's recommended to back up your media files to an SD card, a PC, or using an app from the Google Play, prior to upgrading to Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow. Also, make sure that your phone's battery is at least 50% charged before attempting to update to the new OS version.

If you're still unaware of all the improvements you'll get with the new update, make sure to check out our full Android 6.0 Marshmallow review.

Better late than never, considering Marshmallow has been out for over a year. Love those Android updates.

Every headline reminding me of fragmentation drives me crazy. Why can't Android offer a one button online solution that replaces any oem os with the latest Android os?

Because carriers gotta add their bloat. Verizon is the worst offender.

So with the monthly security updates and large portion of the key features from the newest android baked in, does it really matter that much that some of these devices do not have the latest android OS?
