Late September, Google released the final version of Android 6.0 Marshmallow. As the norm is, the members of the Nexus family got updated first, but Samsung's select devices will also get Marshmallow support. For the time being there's no official release date regarding Sammy's Android 6.0 update, but signs suggest it shouldn't be too far away.

A few screenshots of Android 6.0 Marshmallow running on a Samsung Galaxy S6 have surfaced online. The screenshots have hit the web courtesy of Chinese website Weibo and show some of the changes brought by the new software update. As you can see in the gallery below, the visual changes aren't major most of them being about slight UI tweaks, a cleaner look, and more Material Design elements.

The leaked screenshots don't reveal anything about the release date of the Samsung Galaxy S6 Android 6.0 Marshmallow update. However, an alleged Samsung roadmap got leaked a while ago. According to the document, the Marshmallow was approved for both Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge and it should start rolling out in January 2016.

Just like it happens with all software updates, Android 6.0 for Galaxy S6 will be pushed to users gradually, meaning that the ETA will vary with phone model, carrier, and region. I remind you that only the devices running an official build are eligible to receive the update and that when the servers push the update to your terminal a message should appear in the notifications panel. All you need to do is tap on it and follow the prompts on the screen.

Even though the Marshmallow update is not as major as the transition from KitKat to Lollipop, it still brings quite a few changes and improvements. It comes with improved security courtesy of the new granular app permissions system, promises battery life with the new Doze Mode, improved Do Not Disturb Mode, Direct Share, Deep Linking, Google Now On Tap, and more.
