Galaxy S5 on Verizon starts to receive its Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow update

1 June, 2016 Android Updates

After T-Mobile updated its version of the Samsung Galaxy S5 last week, Verizon has now decided to do the same. After downloading and installing the update, the flagship smartphone from 2014 will be upgraded to firmware version MMB29M.G900VVRU2DPD1 and base Android version 6.0.1 Marshmallow. Famous features like Google Now on Tap, customizable app permissions, Wi-Fi calling, revamped app icons, Ultra-High-Quality Audio, Doze and Android for Work are expected to make their way on to the Galaxy S5 with this update.

We found the Wi-Fi Calling facility to be particularly interesting which allows both incoming and outgoing calls over a Wi-Fi network when mobile networks cannot be reached. It needs to be activated from Settings> Advanced Calling> Activate Advanced Calling. After that, turn on HD Voice and Wi-Fi Calling, which you should be able to see on the same page once you Activate Advanced Calling.

If you have already seen the notification for this update, download and install it now, via a reliable Wi-Fi connection. If you have not seen any such notifications, don't worry as it always takes a while before an OTA update reaches all smartphones within the target area. Feel free to check manually from Settings> About device> Check for updates.
