Verizon’s Galaxy Note 5 starts receiving Android Marshmallow update

Verizon’s Galaxy S5 became the first Samsung smartphone variant in the US to get Android 5.0 Lollipop when it arrived in the US, but the carrier had to recall the update and re-release it at a later time due to some problems. Now, though, Verizon is making headlines again: this time, it is the first American carrier to release the Marshmallow update for the Galaxy Note 5.

The Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow update for the Galaxy Note 5 will bring the software version to VRU2BPB2 (build number MMB29K). The update includes the 200+ new emoji Google brought to its Nexus devices when the update was first released several weeks ago. In addition to the new emoji, and Google’s own Google Now On Tap, Doze Mode, detailed battery stats, customizable permissions, and so on.

Verizon brings its own changes to the Galaxy Note 5 for its customers. One of these that we know you’ll enjoy to the fullest extent is Wi-Fi Calling, a feature that will no longer mandate worrying about your 3G/4G calling signal in some out-of-coverage areas. Additionally, YouTube Live Broadcast will now allow you to bring people in on what you’re doing, even if they’re not on your contacts list.

Amazon’s Appstore will be removed with the update, but you’ll also gain Samsung’s new and improved “squircle” icons and folder designs that’ll match what T-Mobile Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 edge buyers are experiencing right now. To grab Google’s latest sweet treat, head on over to System Settings > System Updates > Check for new system update. If you want to see just what you’re getting before you hit that update button, check out our Galaxy Note 5 Android Marshmallow coverage.

Well, join the pity party as Verizon Note Edge users are STILL stuck on bug riddled 5.01! At least some of you have 5.1.1. Enough said!

I am amazed that Verizon is first….
Now if my Note 4 gets the same speed when released. But I am still waiting on the February security update!!! That has always been the norm with Verizon!!! I hope that 6 works. After 4.4.4 I had to wait until 5.1.1 to have everything work as well as it did when new… Scary…

So the Note 5, S6, S6 edge and s6 edge + has begin to role out 6.0.1. Not everyone have yet because it’s still rolling out but the marshmallow is available in many countries now. But yet we haven’t heard anything for the note 4 and S5. Shouldn’t Samsung begin the testing on marshmallow for note4 and s5 since the latest devices from Samsung have already begin it’s role out

It’s funny
Sammy can given its version of 6.0.1 to Verizon and Verizon had enough time to pack it with its own bloat and has released it as well
While the international model is still on lollipop considering Sammy has to push it out on its own without any worries of any carrier

The Cambodia version has been available for the 920C for 2 weeks now. It has English language – US and UK. It works great.
