Verizon’s Galaxy Note 5 starts receiving Android Marshmallow update
Back in December, we got a tip depicting a new Android update roadmap for Samsung devices that moved the Note 5 from the previously rumored Q4 2015 update queue for Marshmallow, to Q1 2016. Afterwards, Samsung announced an official beta testing program for Marshmallow on the AT&T Galaxy S6 edge (SM-G925A), AT&T Galaxy Note 5 (SM-N920A), Verizon Galaxy S6 edge (SM-G925V), and Verizon Galaxy S6 edge+ (SM-G928V).

Fast forward a couple of weeks, and it is actually Note 5 users on Verizon who will be the lucky first souls to own a top-shelf Samsung on a US carrier, and get the newest Android plus all the goods Samsung wrapped up, like a new browser or the Cross App multitasking. The update has a software version of MMB29K.N920VVRU2BPB2, and brings all the Marshmallow features like the battery-saving Doze mode, or the ability to swap things like the stock dialer with a third-party app. Verizon has added a few twists of its own like enabling Wi-Fi Calling and YouTube Live Broadcast so that you can stream whatever is around you on your channel.

The notification bar area, which was arguably the biggest eyesore of TouchWiz, has now received a white theme with light blue accents, and the whole interface, as well as the keyboard, have become faster and more responsive, thanks to this new TouchWiz on Marshmallow combo. Check out the screenshots from the official Android 6.0 update. 'squircle' icons and all, in the slideshow below.
