Verizon rolls out new software update for Samsung Galaxy S6 and S6 edge

Verizon released Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow for its Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 edge a few weeks ago, and now it's launching a new software update for Samsung's 2015 flagships.

The update - which doesn't affect the Android version installed on either device - brings "bug fixes, enhancements and other changes", according to the carrier:

  • Fixes Google Play™ Store app update and download errors
  • Resolves Visual Voice Mail access issues
  • Google "Search" is now available in Settings menu
  • You can now answer video calls as just a voice call, and when you do, the call audio is routed to the earpiece by default. Video call audio will come from the speaker by default
  • Removed Amazon Music app
  • When a USB cable is plugged into the phone, the default mode automatically shows other USB options (like File Transfer)
  • Added "Send Premium SMS" in the Application manager settings

Additionally, owners of both handsets will see a new Memory setting in the Application manager, allowing them to view how much RAM is being used by each app installed on their device.

The update is rolling out over-the-air, but as with all OTA updates, it may take a little while before it's available for all eligible handsets.
