LG has released its Android 6.0 Marshmallow update for the LG G4 in Europe through the LG Bridge desktop software. U.S. owners of the G4 could possibly get an early holiday gift now that it's been released in Poland, South Korea and Europe.
Since Google's current flagship smartphones, the Nexus 5X and Nexus 6P, were the first smartphones to ship with Android 6.0 Marshmallow out of the box, most Android fans are hoping that their smartphone will be treated to Google's freshest and sweetest version of Android yet.
Tech Times reported last week that a leaked Samsung Android 6.0 Marshmallow update schedule revealed the status and ETA of the update for the Galaxy Note 5, S6 Edge+, S6 Edge and S6, along with other handsets and tablets. Samsung is expected to begin rolling out the OTA update in December for the Galaxy Note 5.
Now, LG smartphone fans, especially LG G4 owners, have something to look forward to. LG has already released its Android 6.0 Marshmallow update for the G4 in both Poland and South Korea, and the company has just released the new OS to European countries.
In order to install the Android 6.0 Marshmallow update, users will need to download the LG Bridge PC or Mac application. LG has created a dedicated web page to provide a rundown of some of the new features available in the LG G4 Marshmallow update.
Some of the major features LG highlights is "Knock Code," which allows users to tap on the smartphone's display in a particular sequence and area to unlock the screen. "App Permissions" makes it easier to allow or deny permissions for apps. "Allow Peeking" will show notifications at the top of the screen so notifications don't block the screen.
While LG hasn't announced when G4 owners in the U.S. can expect to receive an update to Android 6.0 Marshmallow, it's widely expected to roll out soon, now that it has hit other countries.
