Verizon has been busy of late with its number of update roll outs to its Android devices. Just recently we've seen the mobile carrier send out updates of the soon to be outdated Android 6.0 version to its branded Galaxy S5, Droid Maxx 2 and many more. Now, it seems two more handsets are joining the Marshmallow upgrade train, this time around its the Galaxy Note 4 and Galaxy Tab S2 devices. The new software update will particularly boost the software version of Galaxy Note 4 to a MMB29M.N910VVRU2CPD1 build number. Along with the signature features from Android Marshmallow, Verizon has also incorporated a few other improvements to the device's update, such as a new app icon, a new folder design, Wi-Fi calling, a mode for Ultra-High-Quality Audio (Hi-Fi Audio), along with Android for Work. In addition, the update eliminates Amazon Music which comes pre-installed on the device. Samsung Galaxy Tab S2 will also get its own impressive enhancements with the email toolbar getting new editing and sorting features, the stock Gallery now includes new collages and animations and the Memo app now allows the creation and saving of drawings. Naturally, these two Samsung devices will also receive all of the basic Marshmallow features and functions, most notably Google Now on Tap, granular app permissions and a lot more. It may take a little while for the update to reach your device, but once it does, let us know about your new-found Marshmallow experience in the comments.
