Samsung SideSync update foretells Marshmallow coming to Galaxy smartphones


Samsung's SideSync is a software suite, which allows users to connect their Galaxy smartphone to their Windows PC for the purpose of file sharing, screen casting, keyboard and mouse sharing, and remote control. It's your data transfer app on steroids, reserved for use by Samsung's customers.

The mobile SideSync app has very recently received an update, which focuses on improving its performance on phones that run (drumroll, please) Android 6.0 Marshmallow. According to the app's changelog, not only has support for Android 6.0 been added, but file transfers should work faster with phones that run on the newest version of Google's OS.

This update can very easily be read as a sign that the Marshmallow update for Sammy's flagships is nearly here. Sure, one might say that the SideSync patch is part of a preparation for the Galaxy S7 launch, as it is expected to be unveiled on the 21st of February, and it will most definitely run on Marshmallow. But it seems that updating apps 2 months before the flagship's announcement is a bit too early. Besides, we've already seen Marshmallowed TouchWiz on a Galaxy Note 4 – and it looks glorious.

Are you a proud owner of a 2014 Note 4 or Note Edge? Itching to get that shiny new interface on your smartphone, or are you fine with your TouchWiz as it is?
