Last updated: May 18th, 2016 at 08:41 UTC+02:00

The Galaxy Tab A has become the latest Samsung device to make the jump to Android 6.0 Marshmallow. The new version of the OS (Android 6.0.1 to be exact) is rolling out to the 9.7-inch Wi-Fi variant (SM-T550) of the tablet in France, with build number T550XXU1BPE1. Expect to see all the under-the-hood features of Marshmallow, including better battery life thanks to Doze and better control over app permissions. Google Now on Tap should be on offer as well.

The update is available over Samsung Smart Switch on PCs and via our firmware section. It should also be making its way to users over the air, and a trip into the Settings » About device » Software update menu should let them access the update right away. Own a Galaxy Tab A? Let us know if you have received Marshmallow, and be assured that we will be letting you know once the update rolls out to other regions and to other variants of the tablet.
