Android 6.0 Marshmallow hits the Galaxy S6 edge+ in Europe, India and Sprint in the U.S.

Android 6.0 Marshmallow hits the Galaxy S6 edge+ in Europe, India and Sprint in the U.S.
Only yesterday, Sprint began to roll Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow out to owners of the Samsung Galaxy Note 4 and Note 5. Today, those rocking the Galaxy S6 edge+ through the carrier will be able to grab the latest edition of Android, and it appears that a more global distribution of Marshmallow to the S6 edge+ is currently underway. Owners in parts of Europe as well as India have apparently been furnished with the 1.3 GB care package, so no matter where you happen to reside, there's a good chance that your S6 edge+ will follow suit.

The Sprint software update (G928PVPU2BPC3) is now making its way through cyberspace, though you may have to wait a little before it reaches your handset. To check, you'll need to fire up the Settings app on your handset and navigate through About device --> Software update --> Update now. If you don't see anything straight away, try again in a couple of hours' time.

Though yesterday's Note update arrived complete with the latest March 1st Android security patch, the Galaxy S6 edge+ update on Sprint is just the standard Android 6.0 Marshmallow. This still adds the vast majority of Google's latest firmware features, including Google Now on Tap, so once you have updated your S6 edge+, you'll be almost completely up-to-date.

Do you own the Galaxy S6 edge+? Let us know if you've received the Marshmallow update by dropping a comment below.

Meanwhile, Marshmallow for S6 Edge+ is still in Manufacturer development on T-Mobile. I am guessing we'll have it by May-June. Pathetic.

I got the update the day before yesterday, and its huge! Boy 1.2 Gb isnt small!
Anyways, it seems to make the device more responsive and faster. The ui changes are not that favorable as too much white on amoled consumes much more battery than LCD, so i've installed the material dark theme that does the job. I just hope the next update doesn't take that long sammy!
