Sprint rolling out Android 6.0 update for the Samsung Galaxy S6

Among the top four US carriers, T-Mobile was the quickest to update the Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 edge to Android 6.0 Marshmallow (while Verizon took the crown for the Note 5), and we have been waiting for the other three to follow in T-Mobile’s footsteps. Sprint is doing so today, with its Galaxy S6 beginning to receive Android 6.0.1 over the air. The Galaxy S6 edge is probably getting the update too, but we don’t have a final confirmation on that just yet.

Sprint’s version of the update (build number G920PVPU3CPB6) is the same as the one that has rolled out to the unlocked Galaxy S6. Google Now on Tap, Doze, and an updated TouchWiz interface are among the highlights, and the update also changes the vibration pattern for when you get calls and messages. As noted in the changelog, there is no decryption option in Android 6.0, so you might want to decrypt your phone (from the Settings » Lock screen and security » Other security settings menu) before installing the update or risk getting stuck with an encrypted device for its lifetime.

You should be getting a notification for the Marshmallow update on your Galaxy S6 sometime in the near future, and you can also check in the Settings » About device » Software update section to begin downloading the 1235.87 MB update immediately. If you have already upgraded to Android 6.0.1, let us know your experience in the comments below!

I got this update couple of days ago. Does Samsung use Google’s API for finger print reader or are they using their own like they did in Lollipop?

Very annoyed with samsung. They are horrible as far as software goes, still waiting for the update for my t-mobile s6, and the samsung pay update for my gear s2 that was bought in October. Its ridiculous. Can’t decide if I’m getting the G5 or the new Moto X.

Hi Abhijeeth,

When India is receiving the Marshmallow update for Galaxy S6..Android N trend started still we are in 5.1.1.. shame on you Samsung .
60% of marketing is done in India, Always India will be the last country to receive the update .

T-Mobile USA has NOT released the Marshmallow update to any Galaxy device thus far. Please review your facts before writing in the future. ;-)

NO, TMO US hasnt updated the GS6 or GS6E to marshmallow yet. So Sprint beat all the carriers in the US. Well done Sprint…..shame on you TMO US, they are lagging so much. Google just announced Android N, and GS6 owners in the US are still on Lollipop. Samsung just lagged it on marshmallow.
