Samsung debuts Android 6.0 Marshmallow beta test in the UK and South Korea

Samsung has just launched an Android 6.0 Marshmallow beta test campaign in South Korea and the UK. The idea is to test drive upcoming Marshmallow firmware updates on a limited number of devices, get feedback from the users, and then fix potential bugs before a wider rollout to smartphones across the globe.

Android 6.0 Marshmallow is likely to arrive on a great number of Samsung smartphones, but the company's high-end phones of 2015, the Galaxy S6, S6 edge, S6 edge+, and the Galaxy Note 5 will surely be the first to get the new Android version. As such, it doesn't come as a surprise to learn that the Galaxy S6 and its curved edge sibling are the first devices to be included in the Marshmallow beta program.

Unfortunately, the Galaxy Care app is only available to Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 edge owners in the UK and those on KT and LGU+, two of the major carriers in South Korea. If you meet these requirements, you'll need to create a Samsung account and then download the Samsung Care app from the Samsung Apps store. Once the registration process is complete, the phone will start downloading a beta version of the Android 6.0 Marshmallow update. 


The program has debuted yesterday and will last until January 18. This probably means that the first Samsung phones will start getting the Android 6.0 Marshmallow update - the official update, not one of these beta builds - not earlier than February.
