In a surprising move, Verizon today announced that it has commenced the Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow update for the Galaxy Note 5 in the United States. Samsung recently started rolling out the Marshmallow update for the Note 5 in its home market last month, so it’s really surprising to see Verizon roll out the update for its variant of the Note 5 so soon.
The update brings quite a few changes and enhancements which includes goodies like Now on Tap, an App Permissions manager, power saving enhancements like App Standby and Doze, and more. Samsung has also tweaked TouchWiz with this update and given it a new white theme, an updated web browser, and new features for the camera app like live broadcast.
Verizon subscribers will also be able to enjoy Wi-Fi calling for HD Voice that can be activated from Settings -> Advanced Calling – Activate Advanced Calling. A detailed changelog of this update straight from Verizon can be found here.
The update is being pushed in phases by Verizon and will only show up on your Note 5 if your handset is connected to a Wi-Fi network.[Via Droid-Life]
