Galaxy Tab S6 owners can finally start using Android 10, as Samsung has released the much-anticipated update for its flagship tablet. The update is rolling out to the LTE variant of the Tab S6 in Germany at this time and should soon be out for the Wi-Fi variant as well. As usual, it will probably take some time to come to more countries, though we can hope it won’t be too long before that happens.
In a surprising move, Samsung has included One UI 2.1 in the Android 10 update for the Galaxy Tab S6, just like it did with the Galaxy Fold. That means you get features such as Quick Share, which allows you to share files with other Galaxy devices running One UI 2.1 with a single tap. The update also brings Music Share – Music Share lets you share your phone or tablet’s connection to Bluetooth devices such as your car stereo with other users.
The Android 10 update comes with build number T865XXU2BTC7 and includes the March 2020 security patch. If you own a Galaxy Tab S6, you will be automatically notified about the update once it’s available in your region. You can also manually check for it by tapping Download and install in the tablet’s Settings » Software update menu. If that doesn’t work, you can download Android 10 firmware from our archive and install it on your Tab S6 using a Windows PC.
