Samsung is known for delaying major software updates to their Galaxy device, this however has not been the case this year. The company has just recently made a beta test of the Android 6.0 Marshmallow update available to their Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge users in the South Korea and UK regions.

Those who own the Galaxy S6 and the S6 Edge devices and live in the United Kingdom regions can follow the this simple procedure to properly install the Android 6.0 Marshmallow beta version update. However, note that you are doing this at your own risk and caution should be exercised.

The Steps to Follow:

First, ensure that you have an unlocked variant of either the Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge handsets with models number SM-G920F or SM-925F. To confirm this, simply navigate to the device’s Settings then tap About device.

Now verify that the current firmware on your device features the right BTU product code. To check this, you can simply install the useful Device Info app available for free in the Google Play Store.

Once its running on your device, navigate to the Firmware option then confirm the product code. If you notice a BTU code indicated next to the model number then you can continue to the next step. However, if the model number has no BTU code stated after it, you still have the option of installing the firmware.

Now you will have the Galaxy Care application downloaded from the Play Store. Get past the welcome screen then swipe to the “Participate Galaxy Beta Program” section. Tap the Join button, and then at the bottom click the Registration button. Afterwards, you will be prompted to agree to the terms of the license, then within the next 24 hours you will be able to access the Android 6.0 Marshmallow beta download.
