[Updated: Registration closed] Samsung Galaxy S6 and S6 edge owners start receiving Android 6.0 beta firmware in the UK

We had reported yesterday that Samsung UK was looking beta testers for Android 6.0 Marshmallow update for the Galaxy S6. Now, we’ve noticed that the users, who registered to be the beta testers for the program, have started receiving the Android 6.0 beta firmware on their devices already.

The beta firmware is being rolled out in the UK to the Galaxy S6 as well as the Galaxy S6 edge, and you can see from the screenshots there are quite a few changes in the interface. If you are someone who opted in for the beta testing program for the Marshmallow update and has received the update on your device, you can tell us about new features or changes that you may stumble upon.

Head over to this post to see how you can get the Android 6.0 beta on your Galaxy S6 or S6 edge!

New Features with Android 6.0 Marshmallow beta firmware update:

  1. A lot of nice and fluid animations and effects.
  2. An option to save images in RAW format.
  3. Pro mode in the camera app brings shutter speed option to the Galaxy S6 and the Galaxy S6 edge.
  4. New power menu.
  5. An option to customise lock screen app shortcuts.
  6. New colour for quick settings panel.
  7. An option to enable or disable fast charging.
  8. An ability to add apps to a folder directly from within the folder.
  9. App permissions.
  10. Google Now On Tap.

Screenshots (thanks, Jack!):

Update: Registration for the Marshmallow beta program has now been closed.

If you weren’t on BTU before and just installed it, do a factory reset and the OTA starts downloading immediately after the first boot.

Ugly as always, furthermore, if Sammy is going to make 6.0 slower or anyhow worse than Lollipop I promise to sell my S6 same week and never touch a Samsung device again…

What about fingerprint encryption for native apps. Doze mode. Guest mode. Any update about these would be welcome. People who are able to report or suggest pls do suggest all these to the Samsung got a chance to let them know what we are expecting. Any news about g925i beta testing version release…..

According to reddit/various people…
1. native fingerprint API is there
2. Doze is there (though it’s hard to tell off the bat)

Has anyone with “dirty” flash from another CSC to BTU firmware got the update without also factory resetting the phone to also effectively change the CSC? I would like to avoid erasing everything if I do not need to do so. Thanks.

An option to enable or disable fast charging.
Already on note 4 5.0.1 …was on 4.4.4 also..

11 months 14 days ago

Is Doze included???

11 months 14 days ago

no it’s not..at least I can’t find it from search in settings

11 months 8 days ago

That’s because Doze is always active beneath the system. Of course you won’t find it in settings

What about note 5?

11 months 15 days ago

I did not finish like the background color of the icons of the non-native apps from Samsung, I hope to change that color to an automatic selection depending on the colors of the icon or let us choose to us the color that we like or remove the shape of the icon and leave ordinary. Native apps are the same as lollipop? (Colors, designs, etc.)

I share a some suggestions..like..
1. U have to change the lockscreen camera and dialer icon with the 5.1.1 old lockscreen icon …old icons r coolll and enhancing the Look of lock screen. ..
So please change it..

Just wanted to let anyone know.

I’m on XEU G925F, latest version. Checking for Update took a little longer than usual. At the moment, it installed the update and now is Optimizing my 137 apps. Will do a Factory Reset, once complete for better performance.
