Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow reaches the T-Mobile Galaxy Note 5 and Telus Galaxy S6

Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow reaches the T-Mobile Galaxy Note 5 and Telus Galaxy S6
Android Marshmallow's roll-out has steadily gained some traction over the past couple of months, particularly in the case of Samsung's big guns from last year. Those rocking the Galaxy S6 with Telus in Canada are now finally getting in on the act, along with T-Mobile-carried owners of the Galaxy Note 5

A number of carriers have already rolled out Android 6 Marshmallow to the Galaxy S6, though Telus customers have been left out in the cold. The firmware was supposed to have arrived back in early March, but as is so often the case with Android updates, managed to hit a few bumps on its way out. 

The Galaxy Note 5 on T-Mobile is also now seeing some long-awaited Marshmallow loving, and with both Telus' S6 and T-Mo's Note 5, the very latest version 6.0.1 is on the menu. So along with Doze, Google Now on Tap, individual app permissions and the many more substantial features of Marshmallow (as you can see here in a tad more detail), updaters will also get the new emoji pack added with Android 6.0.1.

As ever, it may take a while for your device to receive the update. The wait could be anywhere from a few minutes to a few years days, though you can perhaps take some comfort in knowing that it's actually now on the home straight. If you'd like to be a tad more proactive, you could try to force the update by navigating your way through Settings --> About device --> Software update to see if the bundle is ready for you.
