    Verizon releases Marshmallow for the Galaxy Tab S

    Firmware

    About a month ago it was reported that Samsung might not release Marshmallow for the original Galaxy Tab S but we later picked up on a user manual which confirmed that Android 6.0 would be coming to this tablet in the near future. The update was later released for this tablet in Germany. Verizon today released Marshmallow for the Galaxy Tab S. It's an impressive feat for the carrier when you consider that this is a tablet from two years ago and on a carrier that's not necessarily known for its speed when it comes to releasing updates.

    This is certainly going to be the last major update that the Galaxy Tab S gets because it surely won't be getting Android 7.0 Nougat. Software version MMB29M.T807VVRU1CPG6 is now being rolled out by Verizon for this tablet. It features all the bells and whistles that we have come to expect from a Marshmallow update, including but not limited to better app permissions, Google Now on Tap, user interface tweaks, a better notifications experience, and more.
