Android 6 Marshmallow released for the Galaxy Note 5 and S6 edge+ in Canada
If you own a Galaxy Note 5 or S6 edge+ and reside in the land of maple syrup, we have some fairly good news on the sticky-sweet treat front; as of now, both phablets are being furnished with Android 6.0 Marshmallow in Canada. Although the total reach of Marshmallow still hovers down by the 5 percent mark, a great number of devices have been added to the pool of late. Samsung's Galaxy S6 edge+ got the nod across several markets last month, while the company's Galaxy Note 5 was also treated to the latest sweet flavor of Google's firmware back in March. Finally, Canadian owners can get in on the action.

Owners subbed to either Bell or Telus can now upgrade from Lollipop, with Android 6.0. Marshmallow rolling out to the Note 5 and S6 edge+ via both carriers. If you're on Rogers, you'll probably have to sit on your hands for another couple of weeks, since the new firmware likely won't arrive at your door until April 27th. 

Even if you haven't had the chance to taste Marshmallow as yet, you'll probably be more than familiar with most of the changes and tweaks. As well as the adjustments to TouchWiz, marquee features of Android 6.0 include the Doze battery-management feature, which should help to keep the lights on for longer. There's also Google Now on Tap, along with myriad other small changes to dive into. 

As ever, you mightn't get the OTA right away, so it may be a few hours or even a couple of days before that all-conquering notification reaches you. In preparation, ensure that your device has enough free space to process the update, since the feature-packed bundle is well over one gigabyte in total size. 

Has your Note 5 or S6 edge+ gotten Android 6 yet? Let us know how you're getting on with the update below.
