T-Mobile releases Marshmallow update for the Galaxy S5

Today T-Mobile has finally commenced the rollout of Android 6.0 Marshmallow to the Galaxy S5 units it’s sold. Samsung’s flagship smartphone from two years ago is thus in the process of receiving access to the latest version of Android. As always in these cases, keep in mind that the rollout is staged and it may take a few days for all devices to get the update notification.

The new release is software version G900T3UVU1GPE1 or G900TUVU1GPE1 depending on which Galaxy S5 model you have. In both cases, the download should be around 1GB in size, so you will need to fetch it via Wi-Fi. Alternatively, you can go with Samsung Smart Switch for PC if you want to use a computer for the installation.

The update obviously brings with it all the goodies that Google has baked into Marshmallow, including (but definitely not limited to) Doze Mode and App Standby for improved battery life, Now On Tap, and a new permissions system. Aside from these, T-Mobile also mentions a “device slowness fix” which should be great news for Galaxy S5 owners.
