Samsung Galaxy S6 and S6 edge's Android 5.1 Lollipop update to include a Guest Mode feature
Earlier this month, we told you that Samsung was working to bring an official Android 5.1 update to its latest flagship smartphones: the Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 edge. While there is no word on when we should expect the update to be released, Sam Mobile today revealed that Samsung is planning to include a new feature into the update.

Reportedly, the Android 5.1 Lollipop update will bring a Guest Mode to the S6 and S6 edge. Already available on non-Samsung handsets running Android Lollipop (including version 5.0), Guest Mode will enable S6 and S6 edge owners to set up personal spaces for guests on their devices. It's said that the feature will even allow guests to use their fingerprints to access their personalized spaces.

It's not clear if Guest Mode will also be included in the Android 5.1 updates that Samsung is readying for other devices (though we don't see why not). Also, we still don't know exactly when the Galaxy S6 and S6 edge should get the 5.1 update, but we assume it's going to happen pretty soon.

If you have a Galaxy S6 or S6 edge (or want to get one), do you think Guest Mode will be useful?
