Many a disgruntled LG G4 owner has waited patiently for the Android 6.0 Marshmallow update to appear, to no avail in many cases. The roll-out has been a rather stuttered affair thus far, and despite the impending nature of the G5, many owners of LG’s current flagship have been left sitting on their hands. After starting out inPoland, trickling through LG’s native South Korea before hitting parts of Europe, Sprint’s LG G4 got a taste of Marshmallow in late December. As of today, a number of Canadian carriers are getting in on the act as the protracted software update forms another chapter.
Android 6.0 Marshmallow update reaches more LG G4 owners
Today, Telus users will begin to see the OTA notification, while Rogers will partake from this coming Wednesday, February 3. Bell shouldn’t be too far behind, though since the carrier doesn’t provide a schedule for its customers to follow, there’s no telling exactly when its G4 Marshmallow update will grace users with its presence.
As you’re probably aware, Android 6.0 Marshmallow offers a number of useful tweaks. There’s improved battery management courtesy of Doze, which places your phone into a deep sleep and thus allows you to dredge every last droplet of juice. There’s also contextual search functionality through Google Now on Tap — a smarter edition of the virtual assistant that will post search results related to what’s being viewed on the display at the time.
