Samsung Galaxy Tab A receives Android 6.0 Marshmallow update

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.

Even this mid-range tablet is going to get an update. Meanwhile, my £449 Tab Pro didn’t even get a single update from Kitkat.

Way to build customer loyalty, Samsung.

.. still waiting on the update here in Nebraska, USA. Maybe I’ll do a goFundMe page to save money, fly to France, and get the update there? It would be quicker …

Thats just because our phones are 3rd generation now… S7 gets the updates first, S6 next and S5 finally – and all models in between. Just like the S4 last year, development speed is kept low… Keep checking your phone for the update (under info) because my version (BTU/OXA) was released on may 13 – but sammobile said it came out on the 16th (monday, where it shouldve been friday before the weekend). Judging by the way the updates are running, as soon as a carrier releases it in your country, it should come out within a week or 2.… Read more »
