Verizon has started rolling a much-requested update for its carrier-branded variant of the Galaxy Tab S3 in the United States, following its release in the Netherlands back in October. The upgrade bundles support for HDR video streaming for Netflix, in addition to a handful of miscellaneous bug fixes and stability improvements.

The update, as you’d expect, also transports all of the security patches included in October’s Security Maintenance Release (SMR), which consists of 215 patches for vulnerabilities in the open-source Android operating system and six for the firm’s own modified software, as well as fixes for the BlueBorne and KRACK vulnerabilities.

Here’s the full changelog:

  • Netflix High Dynamic Range (HDR) video streaming is now supported
  • Fixed Fingerprint Setup Wizard issue
  • Latest Android security patches

How do I install the update on my Galaxy Tab S3?

To check to see if the release is ready for your Galaxy Tab S3, open Settings, select Software Update, then tap Download Updates Manually. Alternatively, you can always wait until you receive a push notification prompting you to install the OTA—but be warned: it could take a little longer to arrive if you decide to take that path.
