Android 6.0 Marshmallow Updates: Verizon And T-Mobile HTC One M9, Verizon LG G4 And G3 Released
Verizon Wireless is now officially pushing out Android 6.0 Marshmallow to owners of the HTC One M9, LG G4 and LG G3, according to software updates posted by the company, while T-Mobile subscribers are officially receiving their own HTC One M9 Android 6.0 Marshmallow update right on track with the promised release date. Owners of the former flagships should be receiving their updates OTA or can also access them manually via their settings menu.
Verizon subscribers should soon be receiving notifications that the software update is ready to install on their HTC One M9, LG G3 or LG G4, if they haven't already, while T-Mobile HTC One M9 owners have also begun to receive the update, although the carrier hasn't posted a change log as of yet. T-Mobile had promised the Android 6.0 Marshmallow update would be ready just around this time, and it's nice to see that the company is living up to its initial pledge with no delays.
Those users who aren't patient enough to wait on their notification can download the update manually via the settings menu on their device. LG G3 and LG G4 owners can navigate within their settings app from "About Phone" to Update Center" to "System Updates", and then click on "Check For Update." On the HTC One M9, after accessing the Settings app, go to "System Updates" to "HTC Software Update" and click on "Check Now."
While T-Mobile already began rolling out the Android 6.0 Marshmallow Update for the LG G4 a few weeks ago, the LG G3 Marshmallow update is still listed on T-Mobile's website as undergoing "Manufacturer Development." That's the first of the three phases of T-Mobile's software update release process. That means that the LG G3 Android Marshmallow update isn't imminent as it has yet to even enter "T-Mobile Testing," the second phase of the 3-tier process, which culminates in the "completed" stage upon release.
The HTC One M8 is currently in that second testing stage of the T-Mobile software update release process, which means that it should be available soon to owners of that former flagship device.
